Pirates Cove never disappoints! I went in the 80's with my nieces, 90's with my kids and my kids worked there in the 10's. The park is always spotless and just big enough for the under 10 crowd to not be overwhelmed. Pirate's Cove is...More

They have fun rides but the children must be able to go on them alone. Great fun afternoon out. Not great for 1-2 year olds as not as much to do for them.

This is a neat little amusement park for young children. The sweet spot is probably in the 3-6 year old range, but children as young as 1 1/2 could mostly enjoy it, and I would say up to age 8 or so. It's very nice...More
