We took our 2 boys to Bowcraft. They had a blast on all the rides. Cost is very reasonable for $25.95. This covered unlimited rides for the full day. The boys had fun and were not tired of riding the same rides several times. Their...More

Went there for a birthday party, and the place looked pretty old, worn-down and seedy. The place was severly understaffed, the the employees present were quite nice. Most rides were only suitable for young kids, and I myself only enjoyed two of them: Galleon, the...More

We went here with a large family party, many cousins in all. While the kids enjoyed the many rides, the place is in total disrepair. My brother-in-law, originally from Edison, remarked how the place has not changed in 20 years since he came as a...More

Small, roadside amusement park that's a decent size for small children, but not necessarily a 'destination'-type place. Rides are fine, but not all operating on the summer weeknight we went. We paid a promotional rate and that was a good value. Not sure I'd pay...More

I had my grandchildren for the weekend and wanted to take them someplace fun. Instead of bucking the traffic on the Parkway to go down the shore, I took them to Bowcraft. The last time I was at Bowcraft was probably in 1968! It has...More

A couple parties I've attended here are amazing and uncontrolled. Even if you don't want to rent out the park room, which this park includes, you can sit at a picnic table and order pizza, funnel cake, etc. The rides are also very safe, yet...More

This is a little gem amongst some of the larger amusement parks in the area. There are mainly classic rides here for children and their parents. This is more geared to families with younger children, under the age of 10. The grounds were clean, and...More
