My daughters loved the amusement area. Outdated but prices made up for that. There were alot of high schoolers there. I was bothered that two of the attendants were using electronic smoking devices while operating the attractions. Joyland arcade was fun as well.

Throw back nostalgia to the Mardi gras arcade. Enjoyed the games. Wish they still had the old trivia machines.

We spent there a couple of hours, we all love to walk watching the beach, the kids got to play some in the sand, and got some souvenirs. Public restrooms were clean.

This place was dirty, smelly and such a let down. The ferris wheel was broken and looked too old to be safe. An update is badly needed. The worst part is that parking is hard to find so we paid $15 to park for nothing but a let down! You would think the city of Daytona would want this to... More

Amusement rides are scary and didn't move much. Pier was a typical pier I would say. Nothing to special. Probably fun back in the day.

It's okay for the kids to play in the arcade, get pizza and ice cream. The prices for the rides are a bit ridiculous and should be lowered or you should be able to buy a wrist band, 6-8 dollars per ride is very high priced for the small amount of rides they offer. I do like the pier and... More

I love the boardwalk. I've returned now twice and kind of expected more. There's some nice shops and great place to eat but this place came off as slightly dangerous. I wouldn't NOT advise you letting any teen under 17+ walking here at night. During the day its going to be safe but let me tell you... As me and... More

A lot of attractions and places to go. The board walk had rides on it, food, and gift shops. The pizza there is amazing and cheap. A great place to take the family or go with friends.
