The Pleasure Beach, Great Yarmouth

3.7
#2 of 8 in Theme Parks in Norfolk
Theme Park · Water / Amusement Park
First opened in 1909, The Pleasure Beach is a beachside amusement park with over 30 rides. New rides are added every other year, while some historic rides that have been around since the park's opening are still in operation. Take a ride on a roller coaster built in 1932, or enjoy some of the more leisurely heritage attractions, such as the carousel and the scenic railway. Visit the Pleasure Beach Gardens to relax at Sara's Tearooms, a mini-golf course, and the Segway race track. Refresh yourself at the ice cream parlor or on-site cafe. Admission to the park is always free, but you pay for the rides individually. If you plan to spend the entire day, save money by purchasing a wristband.

  • At £12 for 3 hours the Pleasure Beach is good value for money. For a family of 4 including an 18 and 15 year old used to Thorpe Park and Alton Towers the rides weren't too exciting. However, the...  more »
  • Due to COVID, it’s no longer free to enter. Everyone must pay £12 and can ride as much as they want within their session. We had a 4 hour session which was more than enough time to ride everything...  more »
  • Currently, because of Covid, The Pleasure Beach is selling £12 tickets for three hours instead of pay per ride. On the day I came it was a rainy morning and there was hardly any ques for anything so.....  more »

  • Excellent place for the family. Buying the armband in advance before going on the day was the best thing to do and worth it. We had a baby, toddler and 9 year old and they all could go on rides (a part from baby) great day out and good opening times for families too!
  • Love the rides. Good that they have a wristband system and they allow everyone to ride almost every ride. Loved their roller coaster. It is one of the oldest roller coasters still running in the UK. And still, I have lots of fun. I want to go back there again.
  • We love Pleasure Beach although its rather run down.. Its the character of the place. Will be going again on the following weekend with family & taking my MIL as for her belated birthday outing
  • Actully forgot how much fun this place can be. This has been a wonderful summer and therefore we've been twice this month. Two adults and two children (10 & 4) I'd recommend wrist bands for the kids (or teens) and tokens for the adults because as an adult I only went on 1 ride. The historic roller coaster is a must and can be enjoyed my almost all children. My 10 year old niece loved it.
  • We came at the later time (5pm) and paid less, but still got more than our monies worth. Kids went on everything two or three times, or more, and had a great time. Food was good and at the expected price range for being at a fun fair. Nicely situated for a walk back along the coast line at the end of the day.
