• Season extended to November 1
• Autumn visitors get a bonus free hour in the park
There is great news for fans of Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach as the theme-park is extending its season through to the October half-term.
It will be open from 12-4pm every Saturday and Sunday from September 12 to October 25. It will then move to daily opening at the same time across the half-term holiday from October 26 to Sunday November 1, and is also going to trial Wednesday daytime opening between 12-4, on September 9.
The park will operate in the same way it has throughout the summer season with advance booking through its website at www.pleasure-beach.co.uk. Customers will then be emailed a QR code which gives them entry to the site and unlimited access to the rides and attractions.
Pleasure Beach director Jamie Jones said: “As an added bonus for autumn visitors, we are keeping the admission price at £12 per session so you get an extra hour to enjoy the park for the same price as summer entry.”
The team are hopeful people will take the opportunity to come along and make the most of the season extension. It will also build on their busy summer since reopening on July 11. Jamie said: “The booking levels have been good, and the weather has been fantastic which is really important for us. We have been pleased with the season so far.”
Visitors have also adapted to the Pleasure Beach’s new way of operating. As well as the online booking system, there have been a number of extra measures introduced including full social distancing while queuing and going on rides, and an enhanced cleaning programme. “We have had really positive feedback from the new system. It has worked really well, and customers also say they feel really safe thanks to the social distancing measures we have put in place,” said Jamie.
