Rides and Attractions at Joyland
Rides include the world-famous snails and tyrolean tub twist designed by engineering entrepreneur Horace Cole. A huge toy town mountain incorporates the spook express kiddie coaster, jet cars and Neptunes Kingdom undersea fantasy ride. Other rides include the pirate ship, major orbit, balloon wheel and skydiver.
Joyland is a historic free entry children’s fun park located on the town’s seafront. The park first opened in 1949 and has always been owned and operated by the Cole family. In the winter of 1996, the spectacular Toytown Mountain incorporating a brand new kiddie coaster called the Spook Express was constructed.
Engineering entrepreneur Horace Cole designed the world-famous Snails and the now unique Tyrolean Tubs and these were built at the family engineering works at Steam Mill Lane in Great Yarmouth called H Cole and Co.
Horace was married to Daisy Wilson who came from a well-established travelling showman’s family. It was her background and influences that inspired Horace to create the children’s fun park that is Joyland.
It is a fantastic testament to Horace that both the Snails and Tubs remain in operation today and are still as popular today with young and old alike.
The fun park is free to enter with the rides operated on a token basis. If you plan on doing the majority of rides on offer then you can buy a value bag of tokens at the main token box.
