4Roller Coaster

Roller Coaster – also known as Scenic Railway or The Scenic

The Roller Coaster is undoubtedly the star attraction at the Pleasure Beach having been in place since 1933! The ride actually dates back even further to 1928 when it was manufactured, but was operational in France before coming to Great Yarmouth. The traditional coaster made from wood has a single pull-up, once the train has left the top it then travels under gravity the whole journey until it arrives back at the station.
