Had gone to this place and it's very nice and clean. The food is good as well. The shops are very good for shopping too.

We spent a full afternoon using the putt putt golf, the go karts, the arcade games and the squirting bumper boats. Although the mini golf course was very wet the holes were challenging and fun. There were plenty of arcade games, the go karts were a lot of fun but I don't recommend the bumper boats. Only 1 out of... More

For a minute we thought we were back in Barcelona when we visited PE recently from 21-25 March. The Boardwalk has added a water & lights show in the pond which was a new addition since we visited about 15 months ago. It was a welcome addition & repeated a few times in the couple of hours we were there.... More

The Boardwalk area is fairly new and really adds something to the area. There are numerous shops and restaurants around a large lagoon and at night it really comes to life. The fountain show to music is fabulous, if your fortunate enough to see it. Many of the restaurants are "fast food", but there are other types if you prefer.

Apart from the movies not much to do. Impressive building, sad that so many little shops have closed down.

Our hotel was a couple blocks away so we wandered over to see what it was about. Lots of shops, mostly chain stores, what you'd generally see in an outdoor mall in the USA. The casino was nicely done, not crowded on a Saturday afternoon, and had affordable table games in addition to the usual slots.

Sorry, but for tourists there is nothing of interest. Nothing you wouldn't find almost everywhere. True, there are lots of fast Food eateries, plus one or two restaurants and a cinema, not to forget the casiono, but none of that is what I'd call a tourist attraction. There is a tourist information, but if you do need one i'd recommend... More

Although beautiful and offering the Light Show in the pond, the place itself doesn't really offer much. There are a few eateries to choose from and a handful of stores to shop at. The main attraction seems to be the arcade centre or casino. The Amphitheatre hosts some great shows and is a definite must see and visit.

Two colleagues surprised me with a belated birthday lunch on February 20. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there's a restaurant at the casino where one can have a full meal on Mondays at a very reasonable price.
