Blackpool Pleasure Beach is bigger than Yarmouth's but Yarmouth still has its wonderful wooden built scenic roller coaster ride first opened in 1933. Unusually the carriages require a brake-man to control the speed! I have visited since I was a child and in view of its restricted 9 acre area it has reasonably kept up-to-date with new rides and other attractions like the Robin Hood 4D experience (too short though at only 10 minutes!).
Also there is a kiddies roller coaster, the famous cups and saucers, dodgems, gallopers, haunted house, go-karts, log flume (water ride), monorail (up high), mulan (caterpillar ride in the dark), raft ride, safari train, snails and fairy tales, tube slides, twister, Waltzer, yo-yo., to name a few! Some already mentioned are for smaller children and a height restriction needs to be adhered to.
For white knuckles you have to go on the Disko, Evolution, Outrage, Pirate Ship, Sky Drop (22 metres!). The Park is free to enter and roam around but for 'rides' you can to buy an unlimited ride Wristband for £19.50 (age 4 and over, which is MUCH TOO much for children) and £12.50 for 3 and under. A family band is £70 for 4 members - which seems to be more than the individual bands ?! Tokens can be bought for a £1 each - rides required on average 2 and 1 for children's rides.. My advice is to have a walk around first and see what you want to have a go on, and then work out which is the most beneficial way to pay ! . It maybe an idea to buy individual tokens and have just a couple of rides at a time IF you intend to visit more than once. If parking is required this is £4 but is redeemable with purchase of Tokens or Wristbands. Spaces limited.
The park is at the far south end of Yarmouth's 'Golden Mile' walking along a wide pavement parallel to the beach. You pass several other attractions along the way. Children may find this quite a hike. There are horse-drawn landaus (carriages), a fun train and buses.
The park is kept clean and staff are helpful. Can get crowded at night and it is always noisy so be prepared if you have very young children. Probably not best to go if its raining. There are several eating areas and smaller food stalls - and yes, you can still get candy-floss!
