A nice playland with rides for all tastes! The staff was nice and friendly! There are two parts and they seem to be open day and night.

Been here last year, 10 yr old son couldn't wait to come back...its loud! Need to expect it. Many of the machines didn't work, kept having to call someone over... That was a bummer.

This sits right in the middle of the beach. Lots to keep your attention. A great place for young & old of all ages. Take a look around at all the beauty this area has. You will surely be back again & again,

The kids had a blast here. It can get pricey but if you get the unlimited bracelet you don't have to worry as much. It is your typical honkey-tonk amusement park but whats not to love?

Wow does this place get fun at night ! I think everyone that was on that gigantic beach all day goes to the Playland Arcade/Rides at night. Great for people watching. Loads of Fun !!! *Just Enjoy the experience*

Our kids are 8 and 10 and had a great time here. Yes, it's older but there is a certain charm to that. Reminds me of growing up and going to the Pavillion at Myrtle Beach. The kids loved it and had a blast. Just buy the unlimited pass for $32 a kid - it's worth it. Trust me. I... More

It is pricey . Old and somewhat rustic. Noisy, crowded and filled with odd pedestrians. I will keep this civil. However kids love it.. Especially Thursday nights for the free fireworks . There is a large arcade if you don't like the rides. Free Bathrooms , unlike the pay comfort station on the strip, which I hate..ugh. Hey your on... More

Way over priced and many of the rides are in poor condition. Better off going to funtown or storyland, they're a much better value.

Palace Playland is probably the best place to bring the kids to during the day, take them to the beach them to here. Only have to pay $31 for the whole day and night (btw they open weekdays at 12 and weekends at 11) and they don't close till 11-12am. Don't forget the fireworks also. Tip: during the day no... More
