  • Lots of fun rides and activities for all ages. We went here for the grandkids but we all had a really fun time. It was open on a cloudy/spritzy day which we really appreciated. Staff were good. Prices...  read more »
  • Tickets are expensive, I guess that shouldn't be a surprise. Individual tickets are $1 each and a typical ride for a teen will be 4-5 tickets each, with a few at 6 tickets. Little kid rides tend to be...  read more »
  • You don't need to be a kid to enjoy the memories of being in an amusement park. This is a GREAT one! Go ~ Enjoy ~ Make some new memories. You're going to LOVE it there! 
  • I loved it, the kids loved it (12yrs - 20months). Everything is super-clean and it all looks quite modern (i.e. also very safe!). Staff were all nice and not those strange 'carney' types you see at fairs. We got the mega-book which worked out as great value given we have 5 kids. There's coupons everywhere in OC so pick them up for a few extra tickets. There's a good mix of rides all the way from scary to fairy so something for everyone. They have a little arcade too and that was real good value at only a buck a game. Their new flagship rides were still unfinished (Aug '16) despite plans to open in May. I think that had a lot to do with NJ bureaucracy. Look forward to trying them out next year when we're back
  • Arggg Matey! Pirates get ready for a fabulous time watching the smiles on the kids faces as they ride some of the most exhilarating boardwalk attractions! Brave parents are sure to enjoy some rides as well as tasty treats from funnel cake to fried oreos. Top off the night with a custom characture portrait keepsake!
  • One of two spots with rides on the boardwalk, they have plenty for the kids with some decent options for adults. Be sure to watch for wristband specials, as you can blow through tickets pretty quickly when the lines are short.
  • Much better for a 1 year old than Wonderland. Many of the smaller rides can be done with an adult. 3 and up seem to have no problem with most of the rides, but some of them at both parks are too fast for tiny tikes. We found the train, jeeps, carousel and arcade to be better for the lil toddler at Playland.
  • Great Family Fun in OCNJ. A variety of rides for all ages on the boardwalk. Prices are reasonable since you can prebuy them at a discount and they never expire.
