There were plenty of different machines to play, giving out plenty of winning tickets! Child friendly, the rides were great for kids, and there is a weekly firework display until the end of August.

I made my yearly sojourn to OOB with my friend Alex for a day of play and slumming at this famous beach resort town in southern Maine. We took Amtrak down and back from Portland: a quick, easy trip, which lets you off right in the heart of the beach village. It was a gorgeous day and Alex and I... More

Lots of cool rides, even a roller coaster, had a blast there. There is also a large arcade there with every kind of game you can think of

They had a good variety of kids rides. It was pretty pricey though since you pay by the ticket. My kids enjoyed the rides though.

Big attraction here for us was the Galaxy! An old classic rollercoaster that is just about extinct ...except for here! You have to purchase tickets to ride the rides. Galaxy is 4 tickets per person. This is about the highest amount per ride. Loved the Ferris Wheel...FANTASTIC photo taking opportunity from the top! Better than the usual "carny" feel of... More

Palace Playland was certainly a fun place to spend a few hours. Our group was 3 people, ages 22-26. We shared a pack of 20 ride tickets ($25) and got a total of 5 rides out of it. Any of the rides that were appealing to us (with no little kids) were 4 tickets. Maybe if we had small kids... More

There were games and rides for all ages and the Ferris wheel I think was the best especially at night over looking everything and the lights around were amazing. The atmosphere just makes you feel so alive it was a blast.

Palace Playland still has some of the same games from when I was a kid and that what I love most about it. The games arent too pricey and my son enjoys it now as we did as children. Hope it stays forver

It's basically a carnival next to the beach. The kids loved it of course but it gets pretty expensive even with just 2 kids so be ready to drop some $$. The kids really liked the huge arcade too. Overall it's a good time for everyone.

We went in to win a couple prizes for the kiddos and found a couple of kids games that guaranteed a prize for the kids. We played a game where you had to catch fish in a barrel, and then based on the weight they can pick a prize. Well worth it!
