Plenty of rides for various ages. Family ages ranged from 5 to 70. Beautiful sunset and ocean views from Ferris wheel. We were able to move from ride to ride with no waiting in line at this time of year.

Kids of all ages had fun. They also have SPEICALS for buying large amount of tickets. People who operate the rides are friendly and helpful.

Kids enjoyed it, the family had fun at the Arcade. The area was clean, park staff were friendly; most of the rides had attendants standing by.

My kids love to ride the rides there, esp the coasters and they like mini golf and the go carts. We visit this place every summer.

Playland's been a favorite since our 30 year olds were young and it's evolved with them expanding to a fun place to share with their kids now!!
