This occupied our family (5 year old and 4 year old) for about 3 hours. The park is geared more towards that age group. They enjoyed it, however it was very over-priced just to ride some old exhibition rides. The park is pretty outdated and in a big need of updating. The rides are really slow, you don't get a... More

A friend and I stopped in for a quick visit on our way to Upper Clements Park. This is a small park almost out in the middle of nowhere, with most of the rides hidden from the parking lot. The park has a rustic charm to it, and overall it seemed to be clean. There are just a couple rides... More

Really not that much to do at Atlantic Playland. There is no music on the carousel as it moves and the go carts are slow and shaky.

Spent another fun day at Playland yesterday. The new owners are much more customer oriented and friendly that the original owners. The rides are maintained properly now and the water slide area is clean. Nice to see the gravity house theme updated. The staff are very friendly and make sure the children know the rules. SO glad to see the... More

When my family (consisting of an 8-year-old, two adults, and me, a teenager) went to Atlantic Playland, we had an amazing time! The rides may have been older, but they were a blast! And I mean literally a blast, as three of us ganged up on my mom in Bumper Boats. I can understand why most reviews don't give it... More

I took my son here last summer for his birthday fun day. Paid an arm and a leg for pitiful attractions. They need more things, or majorly update the ones they have. Staff was nice, but I won't be back until something changes there.

We had a good time, but the park needs major upkeep. Washroom facilities were clean but the water in the waterslide was very dirty. The buildings look like they have not had any major upkeep in years and the go-cart race track was soooooo rough, it was hard to get any speed up without having your teeth rattle. I realize... More

I haven't been here in many, many years. It sure has grown up, new rides, new buildings.....but....on the other hand not in ways that it so desperately needs. When you look closely. It's has rotten wood on just about everything that has wood ie: kiddie pool slide, picnic tables, mini golf greens, benches etc... The very small and under whelming... More
