Due to government guidelines regarding the Coronavirus outbreak (Covid-19) we have postponed the opening of the Pleasure Beach for the 2020 season. For further information and latest updates please see our park information page.
****Due to the government guidelines regarding the Coronavirus Outbreak, (Covid-19) we have postponed the opening of the Pleasure Beach for the 2020 season. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, but one made with the well-being and safety of our staff in mind and in the best interests of our loyal customers. We will follow advice from the government and open as soon as it is safe to do so.
This will mean our Easter firework display on Wednesday April 15th has been cancelled. We are scheduled for another firework display on Wednesday 27th May but will give further updates as and when we ourselves have any news.
We will email customers today (March 23rd 2020) or tomorrow (March 24th 2020) for those who have booked online and customers with season passes.
If you should need to contact us, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask you to refrain from calling the Pleasure Beach as we are now working remotely.

We thank you for your understanding during these challenging times and we look forward to your custom when we next open.

Wristbands And Ride Tokens
Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach offers three types of wristbands:
Maxi Wristband – For anyone aged seven plus
Midi Wristband – For children aged between four and six years of age
Parent and Toddler Wristband – For a toddler aged two to three years plus a responsible person aged fourteen years and over
The parent and toddler wristband deal does not restrict the responsible adult from going on any of our rides providing they meet the height, health and safety requirements of each individual ride.
Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach always strive to provide value for money and in appreciation of this, the wristbands are now only available for toddlers aged two to three. Any younger toddlers wishing to enjoy the rides, subject to safety restrictions, may ride by purchasing ride tokens providing they are accompanied by a more mature fare paying person.
