  • I got my money's worth, comfortable cold night at the harbor and calm and easy trip on the ferry boat. My complements to home owners at the harbor for such pretty Christmas lights, nice work!, I will do it again.
  • Took my nieces and nephews here. It was super expensive and not much of a fun zone. They have a couple games and ferris wheel but honestly the kids enjoyed riding on the ferry and seeing sea lions more than the ferris wheel. It is a nice location though, I like that you can walk around and theres so many places to eat and things to do around here.
  • Really disappointing if you a grown but of you have a child maybe the three carousels can let have some fun.
  • Love the ferries wheel ride. The staff are super friendly and supportive. Wish that the two arcades combine tickets for our young ones. Visit The Mermaid store and get a slice of pizza near by. Best thin slice I have eaten in a while.
  • Before riding the ferry we stopped at the Fun Zone not a different things to do and play but I like the pinball machine
