Old rickety rides. Not long before someone gets hurt! Took my daughter on the snail ride. Loudest track I have ever heard , my daughter thought it was breaking and it has no padding for the beaten that you take while riding it. The whole...More

Cheap, cheerful and fantastic for the kids. Tokens are brilliant idea. A great place to visit and right on the beach.

Ideal for young children. It is a little tired looking but fun rides for children. You can also get vouchers from joyland as well.

Snails have to be the best ride there. Every time I’m spending time on Yarmouth seafront I always go on the snails. It’s fairly small, so can get really crowded when it’s busy. But friendly staff, good rides and good prices. £1 a token.
