  • This little boardwalk area is kitchy and fun -- but is very, very small. Don't go expecting that you will spend more than about 20 or so minutes before you've seen it all. Not a destination all by its...  more »
  • I enjoyed this as a kid and the best is that I still enjoy it with my grandkids. It's original landmark is a place that everyone has on their to do list. Fun, fun, fun! 
  • I think this can be interesting only to children. Small trivial entertainment, a lot of people, but there are many places where you can eat)

  • 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.
