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 find the pleasure beach and the whole of the seafront very run down. I think there needs to be some major money Putin to this place.

We found the day was super & the staff on the rides helped to make our day extra special. We even went back for a second time & the staff even recognised us. Thank you to all, we will certainly return next year😄

Nice small fair for the kids with a few rides for all ages with roller coasters and other attractions such as dodgems and the ghost train. Not too badly priced but the wristbands wouldn't have been cost effective as there weren't enough rides for each of them but they had fun on 5 rides each.

I visited the Pleasure beach this weekend whilst staying in the area. I have visited many times before, but on this occasion, the ride [roller coaster] which my 18 year old son rode on [he is autistic and loves the sensation of spinning] failed and left him stranded on the ascent to the top.

A lovely place for children manily 9 and upwards as there is not many rides for younger children. The old fashioned roller coaster is brilliant and my children loved the sky drop ride, friendly staff

Worth getting a wristband. Small but enough rides to keep the young one's occupied. Recommended. Visited in half term, weather not brill so thankfully no long queues.
