Review of The Pleasure Beach

The Pleasure Beach

Attraction details
Owner description: The Pleasure Beach with its mixture of high-octane rides and traditional attractions sits at the top of Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile dominating the seafront skyline with its famous Skydrop. Spread over nine acres, the Pleasure Beach offers huge family fun, full-throttle white knuckle rides to exhilarate and thrill, water attractions to catch your breath and fun rides to keep the children happy for hours. Our roller coaster has been the star attraction since 1932 and is still a crowd puller today. More than 1.1 million visitors enjoyed the Pleasure Beach experience in 2013, confirming our place in the top 10 UK free entry amusement parks. And even more attractions, rides and innovations are on their way.

What can you expect..Amusement archades, ice cream stalls, cafes rides for the children horse drawn taxis. Don't expect sophistication, but let your hair down relax & have a laugh.

“A place to enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

A very nice place to go with friends or small children, typical rides, with the wooden rollercoaster that is the only one of its kind in the UK, with a "breakman" that controls everything, so I really think it's worth to go and see it! I enjoy The Pleasure Beach every time I go there, one thing, I do miss the haunted house and i preferred the fun house the way it was back in the 90s! But I still love it! :)

“Informative and fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We loved this and have been before, the shark tunnel is fab and we loved the starfish. The staff interact with children well and entertain as well as educate. Not cheap but well worth it. Look out for 2 for 1 deals.

“I love the Pleasure Beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Such a classic place - It feels like a proper Seaside park! The main classic draw is the 1930s wooden Roller-coaster! A must do If your visiting!
