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.

I went here with my family for my birthday and we all had a great time. I liked the fact that there was a lot to do for all different ages. The rides vary between traditional rides like carousels to Disney adapted rides like the Mulan snake. I would strongly recommend this theme park because, although it's quite small compared... More

We were four mid 60s adults but we still had an amazing time (probably better than some of the kids by the look of things who insisted on being face down onto what ever smart phone they had as opposed to actually having some 'real' fun)....

Looking a bit tired now . Feel sorry for family's with two or more children ask it can be a bit expensive .This is limited for the younger children. Some off the side shows had toys to to win that would only cost you a £ in Yarmouth.

This is great for a family fun filled day. It is a little expensive but if going from open to close it's well worth it. Generally even on busy day the question are not massive and u don't have to wait long for the rides.

We visited the park for the first time and WOW...It is amazing with so much to do and ride on. We spent nearly 4 hours in this park and it was very busy running about to ride as much as possible. We will return soon for another playing day.

Thank Paulo M
