Despite being demolished four months ago, a new tourist facility has still not be found for the former Amazonia site.
The seafront attraction closed in 2014 and was bulldozed this Easter to make way for a 'statement tourist attraction'.
Site owners Great Yarmouth Borough Council has said it wants to ensure 'the right attraction' is secured as soon as possible.
In a statement, a spokesman for the borough council said: 'The borough council is proactively promoting this prime site for a statement tourist attraction which will provide yet another special reason to visit the borough and thereby further support the local economy.
'While no agreement has been reached with any particular operator, the council has held discussions with interested parties and is committed to ensuring the right attraction is secured and on-site as soon as possible.

'It is not a question of finding just any tourism-related occupier for this prominent site, which would be quick and easy. The council is looking for something different and a bit special for the Golden Mile that will add to Yarmouth's already fantastic tourism offer and further enhance its reputation as a top resort.
'In the meantime, the site has been levelled and grassed, so it matches the surrounding area and is more attractive to potential occupiers. This is a massive visual improvement.'
