  • Been coming here since I was a kid and this time is no different! Very fun, get ice cream, bumper cars, arcade, Ferris wheel and much more. Great summer stop if you are visiting Newport! 
  • Balboa fun zone only offers 4 rides. All are for younger children (kids over 8 won't enjoy) and are way overpriced ($5-$10)

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Fun place to take the kids for a little fun without the full day at an amusement park.
