  • Amusement rather than a fair-like atmosphere. Attractions such as shooting or small game play with coins. It was partly through the animal may have returned to the children feel, where you can enjoy a peaceful spot. Delicious hot dog stand

  • We read great reviews so we came here to either do a harbor cruise or ferry our car rental over to Balboa Island. When parking, we noticed a really foul odor (sewage?) in the parking lot. Not sure if ...  more »

  • Well, I have to admit, the second time here was a better experience - namely that the air quality is great and no smells out in the hallway. Air conditioning works great too. Arcade kind of sucks though. They're also real sticklers about the height of kids and for some reason ID grownups.
  • Balboa Fun Zone is a charming destination for families, friends and romantics. It has a ferris wheel, bumper cars, arcades, photo booths, ice cream, pizza and nice restaurants, harbor tours, bicycle rentals. beach walks, fire pits on the beach, pier fishing, and a park. I hosted a small birthday party there! Take the ferry to Balboa Island for a scenic walk to the main street where you will find a variety of shops and eateries.
  • So much room for activities! From food to arcades to just strolling along this is a surefire way to have a good time. There are some pretty sweet events taking place in this area depending on the season as well.
  • Grew up in Newport, always loved visits to the Fun Zone. Iconic trend of the 50's, and just so nostalgic. My cousin champ at the grab a toy arcade game, we always came home with goodies, and full of all the great carnival food offerings.
  • love the balboa fun zone. spend a few quarters in the arcade, ride teh best ferris wheel ever and get some treats. I also like to walk out on the public dock with the kids located near the catalina flyer.
