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

We did not go to this I believe this was closed for the season. If it was open I'm not sure if we would have gone. We are not the type of people that like that.

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
