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.

only theme park I have been too where they charge you £5 to park. Don't tell you there is a charge when you book. Stick to the dinosaur park, bewilderwood, banham zoo, amozonia zoo they all have free parking. lots of rides removed for this year but still charging the same.

Hi Mark, Thank you for your review. We have in the past offered our customers discounted parking when purchasing wristbands or tokens but due to part of the land being sold to Whitbreads we are not able to offer this anymore. We have held our prices for the last two years and have two new rides this season, the second... More

Spot on once again. This place never fails to entertain the kids. Although we visited on Easter bank holiday, the children only waited a maximum of 20mins on a couple of rides and the rest of the time they just went straight on which ever rides they wanted. A new Flying Elephant ride has been added and another new ride... More

Went the day before Good Friday. Got there just before 11am. Pleasure Beach opened at 11 am. Purchased wrist bands at £21 each. We used Tesco clubcard days out vouchers which made day out very cheap. Rides are all old but thats part of the charm of the place. Open for 6 hours but little or no queues so got... More

What a great day out for us all, I have realised after years of going there that the Fun House is named for the people outside watching "so very funny"

Sorry but this is over priced and really not worth wasting your time with. The rides are old and out dated x

Hi Lovesfood34 Thank you for your review but can you be more specific with your review as we are a free entry amusement park and we offer pay as you ride by tokens or all day wristbands. We are sorry if this does not meet your expectations but as you can see from our reviews we have a lot of... More

Visited here while on Easter break, had a great time and the kids all really really liked it! Only a couple of things let the place down such as ....The toilets need better care, they are grubby and dirty, and a little disappointed that the park itself opening hours are a little short for the holidays 11-5 with it not...

Was nice for the kids. My 4 year old wanted to go on everything! Unfortunately the weather wasn't great so we avoided the log flume which looked fun! Quite expensive for larger family
