Large ferrestwheel, plus traditional carousel, small roller coasters, water flume, etc. Great attractions for young kids to early teens. Some rides are under cover for when the weather turns. Clean park. Rides ran by kids.

If you are staying in the middle of the action, which I'd say is 8th-10th St., it's a little walk. But they have good rides for all ages. It can get busy, but is not as loud as the Castaway's ride cove.

Hopefully you purchased your ride tickets earlier in the Spring when they were half priced. As everything in OC - clean and family friendly. Mostly for 12 and under crowd. Go earlier in the day to avoid the crowds.

So if you have a little child and they need a chaperone on the carousel, it'll cost $8 per ride! And that is the cheapest ride. The park is clean and simple,... More

Tickets are a $1 a ticket and rides ran 4-6 tickets. They do however take cards. There were many kiddie rides and fun to be had.

There are a lot of cool rides here like the big roller coaster or the alien abduction ride. But, the Ferris wheel is probably the best. It has a really good view of the beach, the swamp, and you could also see Atlantic City from the top. The tickets don't cost too much and you can buy cotton candy or... More
