Playland was excellent, it makes old orchard beach have something for everyone. We are like many family's where every member has things they like to do most. Playland was clean moderately priced and was just big enough to entertain without being an all day event

Rides are great and lots of games to play for kids and adults. We especially enjoyed the arcade and all the food available.

Not a big fan. I felt that it was a little overpriced for cheesy fair rides. We did enjoy the ferris wheel for great views of the Pier and the ocean.

This is a place I go to at least once in the summer. We love to get pizza and pier fries. And just sit and people watch man you can see some sights there.

I had not been to Palace Playland in a few years and from what I had recalled honestly it had gone down hill BUT we visited over the weekend and everything was great. There was staff every where to help answer questions, cleaning up litter and the ride attendants were all very pleasant. Tickets for the rides are pricey, a... More

My parents danced to Big Band music here, I looked forward to visits here in the '60s, and now my grandkids enjoy the kiddie rides. While I am not a fan of the ultra-noisy arcade, I really enjoy visiting the rides with the little ones at dusk, when the sun is not too hot.

Just a cute little ocean front amusement park. The arcade is pretty modern and up to date. Was really only interested in the Galazi, as far as rides, as that was a throw back to going to Paragon Park as a kid. Went on it twice at Palace Playland. Very family friendly (some families could do a better job watching... More

We went there on a rainy day, spend a few hours in the playland. It was a nice place for all ages. Just next to the beach, a good option to spend the night time after spending the day at the beach.
