£2.50 all day tickets: Memories of Pleasurewood Hills in days gone by
- Credit: Archant Library
Just across the border in Suffolk, Pleasurewood Hills has entertained children and big kids at heart for almost forty years.
From bumper boats and a miniature steam railway to white knuckle rollercoaster rides and exotic animal displays - the Lowestoft attraction has grown to be one of the best theme parks in our region.
It originally opened as a free entry, pay-per-ride attraction in 1982. But Pleasurewood Hills officially opened on June 2, 1983 as an American-style theme park after a major expansion and adding new rides.
At that time, tickets for Pleasurewood Hills changed to all-day inclusive entry and cost just £2.50 per person - that's roughly £8.60 in today's money.
Please enjoy these old photos of Pleasurewood Hills from the archive and take a trip down memory lane.
