Entrance to the Pleasure Beach

Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach is a traditional coastal amusement park, found just off the beach at Great Yarmouth in Norfolk.

The park first opened in 1909. Its most famous ride is the sceni railway, which came to Great Yarmouth in 1932 after having been bought from the Paris Colonial Exhibition where it was run in 1929. As with traditional scenic railways of the period, the rollercoaster's speed is controlled by a brakeman who rides onboard the train manually operating a brake lever.

Other more modern rides at the park include a spinning wild mouse rollercoaster, a haunted house dark ride and a carousel.
