My kids had a great fun. Ferris wheel was also great. I find it pretty pricey though. We've missed Wednesday with unlimited rides for 3h. But we were on time for all rides - 3 coupons promo on Thursday. Parking is not a problem if...More

My grandkids loved it, and it was really easy for us. The Ferris Wheel gave us nice views of the city and the ocean, and the cages made it perfectly safe for the little ones. They picked other rides and loved them.

Great fun for the family. Be sure to buy Gillians wonderland tickets during their online sale around easter. Tickets are half price. Khor Bros custard is the best! Save room for all the yummy boardwalk eats!

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.
