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.

The children loved it here plenty on offer and reasonably priced. Plenty of different activities and plenty of choice to eat.

Took family of 10 out and had half day at Pleasure Beach purchased wrist bands and kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. However believe prices could or should be reduced for large parties

I took my five year old grandson for the day.The rides were ok, but I did not feel it was particularly good value and I do not think that Great Yarmouth has a particularly good atmosphere.

Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach is definitely worth a visit if you're in the area as some of the rides are great fun, especially the classic wooden roller coaster. My only issue was that some of it is looking a bit shabby these days, it's still a great little Park but would highly benefit from having a few pounds spent.

great family day out every year now. Wristbands are the way to go, particularly if you can get them with Tesco vouchers as we do. The wooden roller coaster and the Skydrop are the highlights. Staff very friendly, particularly if you thank them which most people don't seem to do.
