Overview
More
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.

Booked wristbands online in advance and paid about £15 each. Very good value considering the amount of rides we went on. The staff who operate the rides deserve a mention - with no exceptions they were all extremely helpful,friendly and happy !!! Great fun.

Great to see some of those old classic rides still going.... but wow... seriously expensive. Lastly, only go into the toilets if you have a death wish..... they haven’t seen a mop for the last 40 years either
