Visited with young grandchildren, they had a ball. The little ones had a wonderful time and it was a delight to see their happy faces. Rides were age appropriate and well maintained.

This was always the spot we brought our kids. It's always clean and the rides are always fun. Definitely a good place for famililies with small children and teens.

We have come to Gillian‘s for over 15 years. This year we were disappointed that so many rides were closed. The log plume‘s picture booth was closed too. Hmmm. Good news is they appear to have lowered the tickets for some rides.

My extended family has been coming to OCNJ for 80 years! It never disappoints! We love the beach, the boards, Mack & Manco’s pizza (even though Mack defected to Cape May!), Shriver’s. We miss the lead carousel horse, Rosie, in Wonderland, Old Salt and Giuseppe!!!!

We always make it a point to visit Gillian's while at Ocean City--the kids wouldn't have it any other way. This year we went on Wednesday during the afternoon wristband special---$25 for a wristband to ride all afternoon until 4pm. My 9-year-old (who's slightly adventurous)...More

Not at this pier. Down the boardwalk there is another amusement pier with go carts and lots of restaurants. I think the pier is called Castaway Cove.
