A great little family amusement park that my children have enjoyed as much as I did when I was their age. There are. no white knuckle rides just family rides at 1 token (£1) per ride.

I came here exactly 20 years ago. It's not massively changed and that's why I liked it especially as I brought my 2 year old and like me the Snails are a winner. It's an amazing 'theme park' as such for little people. Not overly...More

Joyland really lives up to it's name. This mini-fun-park is ideal for kids from 2 to 12. The 'Snails Ride' is a Great Yarmouth institution, it has been giving joy to kids for 60 plus years. Unlike bigger Fun Parks where you have to buy...More

This is a moderate place for kids because it is not the cleanest place in the world. In the area with the slot machines that give you tickets, the prizes are not great. If you are traveling past this area, take a look!

We took ourselves to Great Yarmouth and had to visit Joyland with our daughter ... cheap and cheerful and great for the little ones !! It's exactly what you'd expect at a British seaside.

It’s free to walk around - it’s just on the sea front near the pier - they are mostly toddler/small rides that you get tokens for & go with them. Our 1 year old went on a few rides with us.
