  • This is a nice clean boardwalk with rides that you would find at a state carnival. The restaurants are a little pricey but you get a good portion for the meal. Drinks are over priced in each restauran...  more »
  • Worth going to Kemah not only for luna park is a beautiful area, you can make boat trips or wander through beautiful homes on the ocean and many locals we spent a lovely afternoon despite being hot and also quite crowded because it was Sunday

  • I really feel like this is a huge tourist trap. I brought my teenage son here at the recommendation of several people. It's a nice place to walk along the boardwalk and there are good places for photo...  more »

  • We bought tickets from a girl named Sasha (had red hair) at the ticket booth. We asked if the Boardwalk Bullet, a roller coaster, was closed and she told us it was open. So we decided to buy tickets. We walk over to the line for the roller coaster and saw the line was closed and an attendant standing there told us the ride was closed for hours due to the weather. The weather was perfectly fine. We returned back to the ticket booth and saw a no refund sign due to weather, but we were lied to about the ride being closed in the first place. Employees here need to be more informed about which rides are open and closed. The Boardwalk Bullet had been closed for hours and we were told by Sasha it was open, and she sold us tickets. Never coming back here again. Food was very over priced also. It was $6.50 for a slice of not so appetizing pizza and $6 for a corn dog. There also isn't much food and store selection either. Would not recommend coming here.
  • I really enjoy going out to Kemah Boardwalk every time. It would be nice if there was more parking and shuttle carts to take us to our cars. It was a long walk. Loved the music and fireworks!!! The prices are high $5 for icee and $7+ for a funnel cake. Rides are $60 I don't remember. However, you will enjoy yourself. My family and friends enjoy ourselves every time.
  • Fun, touristy, awesome views of the bay. We live in the area and like to go here to walk around and get some exercise. Definitely meant for tourists but keep finding cute markets, events and dance classes that go on over the weekends. Would recommend for out of town folks and definitely for families! Prepare to walk a bit as parking gets crowded quickly.
  • Great family friendly environment with a lot of eating choices around. The rides were a little expensive, but that is to be expected from a Boardwalk. We ate at the Aquarium restaurant and had a great meal. Staff was great. The place was empty at 6:00 on a Tuesday evening. The kids loved to walk around and see all the aquariums. They had moved some of their best fish out to other restaurants or the "fish hospital" according to one of the waitresses, but it didn't make that much of a difference.
  • Lots of good restaurants! Seafood, Mexican, steaks and more. Amusement rides (even a little wood rollercoaster!), Starbucks and little shops and several hotels (one right on The Boardwalk). Parking costs around $7 on the flat lots, and I'm not sure how much the parking in the garage goes for. Lots if family fun, or just for a date!
