The Founder

Pleasurewood Hills originally started as an idea by local entrepeneur, Joe Larter. A professional and enthusiast in visitor attractions and family entertainment, he started the story for what we know today as one of the region's best known and most loved family attractions and days out. After a long and successful career, Joe Larter wrote his autobiography Serendipity.


In 2019, Joe Larter visited the park to see it thriving under the ownership of the Looping Group and General Manager, Ricky Lark, as well as meet up with an old friend, Woody Bear.

A Royal Encounter

In 1985, the late Queen Elizabeth II with the Duke of Edinburgh visited Lowestoft in Suffolk to meet the people and to rename the precinct on London Road South to the Queen Elizabeth II Place. During this visit the royal party met with a very famous local celebrity and cuddly friend. None other than the park's very own, Woody Bear.


As the park's representative's met with Her Majesty, she was given two soft toy Woody Bear's for gifts for her two new grandchildren, Prince William and his brother Prince Harry.

Crinkley Bottom Takeover

The 1990s was a great time for family and children's television with one show taking family evening TV by storm, and that was Noel Edmunds' House Party. In 1995, he brought his unique entertainment to Pleasurewood Hills and turned the iconic Pleasurewood Hills theatre into the Crinkley Bottom Castle. He was joined by his pink and yellow sidekick, Mr Blobby.

On the opening day of their show at the park, they cut the ribbon to open what was and still remains, the Cannonball Express rollercoaster.
