  • Before riding the ferry we stopped at the Fun Zone not a different things to do and play but I like the pinball machine
  • 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.
  • Went here with my family had a great time! The little shops were unique and interesting. If I had to remove one star as I did, it was the parking and confusion... Worth a visit just be prepared to get stuck with people all trying to get in and out with a one lane road!
  • Great place for fun with the family or a date. From the Ferris wheel you can see the ocean and pier over the rooftops as well as one of the best views of Newport harbor and all of the boats. For a great meal I recommend Balboa BBQ right across the walkway from the Ferris wheel.
  • Very small cute place for kids to get on the few rides. Nice Area to walk around and have a day out. Beautiful beach views and Pier across the street...
