  • Plan on staying about two hours, and kids and adults alike will have plenty of time to ride all the rides, maybe even a couple of times, get a treat, and make the day pass worth purchasing. If you tim...  more »
  • It's a great place to take younger kids but my teenagers were not that impressed. But we are talking about teenagers who love Six Flags more than anything. I love the concept. I have awesome pics of t...  more »
  • Pricey but had a good time. Beer was expensive. Good for family fun. My two year old enjoyed also as long as he rode with an adult. Would go again.  more »

  • I can't believe we had not come here sooner! I have two teen girls and they had a blast For the first time we came to an amusement park and we all enjoyed it. The park felt safe there is security personnel all through the park. What we really liked is that the park is perfect size not so big that you walk around all day. But you still have enough rides for kids of all ages to enjoy. My husband and I sat in the rocking chairs looking to the ocean. My husband enjoyed the bar where they had beer and frozen margaritas. I bought the bucket of popcorn and the souvenir cup which you can get as many refills as you want for .99 each, it was a great bargain. The girls got to ride all the rides they liked as many times as they wanted because the lines were not ridiculous like other parks we've been to. Just so you'll know there is some type of dress code, we saw security telling a young lady about zipping up her shorts. My husband always carries a small pocket knife and he was asked to either trow it away or go leave it in the car. The bracelet allows you to ride all day. We had dinner across the street and on our way back into the park security asked my daughter in a very rude way to throw away her water that she couldn't bring it in the park. But we were not going to let that ruin our fun day. Overall great experience and the view at night is amazing. We will definitely be back!
  • Love it here. Water, salt, sand & the sights. This is a great place to visit & just sit to reflect or even spend time with the kids and loved ones. Recently theme & water parks have been added as a tourist attraction, but they're attracting the locals as well. Restaurants far as the eye can see; ranging in all pricing points. Lots of SUN in the FUN!!!
  • Didn't actually go in to enjoy the rides.. but I rented a bike and passed by & the place looked very fun!! They have most of the carnival food available here! U get a great view of the Ocean from here!
  • It's a nice place to go and get out and have some fun. It is small so don't expect to roam around looking for new ride to ride like at an amusement park. Unfortunately, in the several times I've been, a couple of rides we're closed for maintenance or other issues.
  • This was a fun place. I took my 3 kids here for spring break. I purchased the family fun pack for $94.99. You get 3 wristbands for 48 inches and taller and one for under 48 inches. We got there at 10:00 a.m. There were no lines to wait in and the crowd was small. My kids rode everything except the Iron Shark. We stayed two hours, as we were leaving that is when the crowd was large and the lines were long. The Log water ride did bruise my inner thigh though. Other than that we had a blast.
