  • Kids loved it, but be prepared to pay through the nose. Big hits were the train, the little roller coaster and helicopters for the youngest, the swings and bumper cars for the middles, and the big coaster and alien abduction for the oldest. No more than about 3 cycles waiting time for any ride.
  • One of the few amusement parks along the boardwalk. In my opinion, probably the only one with lots of people and a few more exciting rides than the other parks I visited. They definitely make the most of the space they have, with a collection of nauseating spinning rides and more kid-friendly rides (and an expensive roller coaster). Tickets are a bit pricey, and the rides themselves are definitely aging. The park is geared towards younger families. Young adults won't find much here to enjoy.
  • Took our young kids (6 and 4) and they loved it. Lots of rides in a fairly tight space. So when it's crowded, it's very crowded. But the lines were still short and the everything seemed well maintained and safe. Good boardwalk rides overall.
  • Not only was Playland my first job but it has been a part of my life since I was about 12 years old! I love seeing the changes through the years and I have to say this is the best the park has ever been. Scott Simpson has taken his Father's park and vision for family fun and taken it to the next and highest level. I suggest everyone come to Playland castaway cove and bring the kids!
  • We really like this park for the kids since it is more compact and in one area opposed to Wonderland. Also, it is in the middle of the boardwalk closer to all the other stores and attractions- You can get half priced tickets if you buy them in the spring and you can do that online- Much more kid friendly and wider space between rides to get your coach or stroller around as opposed to Wonderland.
