More than 1,500 eligible staff registered for their free tokens for themsleves and family and good weather on both days ensured that a grand day out was had by all.
Park owner Norman Wallis said: “I wanted to say a special thank you to the people who help to keep us safe and well all year round so we made this a special weekend for them.
“We gave away £75,000 worth of ride tokens to make sure they could come along with family members and friends and take full advantage of all that the park has to offer.
“From the many, many emails we have received and the social media comments, I think they all had a thoroughly enjoyable time here at Pleasureland.”
This was the second such giveaway that Pleasureland has made this season to members of the services, initially prompted by terrorist atrocities earlier in the year.
