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!

A perfect way to spend a summer day with the kids and it won't bankrupt you. Rides for all ages and spaced out so you don't have to walk forever to get from one ride to the next.

Very clean park. Lots of kiddy rides. A bit pricy with the tickets. It'll cost you almost 20$, for a family of four, to ride the ferris wheel.

My family had a great time at Palace Playland. Between the arcade and the rides I don't know which one they enjoyed more. I would suggest if possible to go either during the mid week and/or early in the day. We found the ride line to be much better at that time.

I have children that are under 10. This is a great place for them. They are just the right size for all the rides. I can see that if the kids are older they would not have as much fun. For the money this place is worth a couple of hours distraction. If you kids are like mine go for... More

My daughters got the all-day pass and were at the park for at least three hours. Nice change from what we're used to in that there weren't any lineups for any of the rides, so the ones that they liked they kept frequenting. Clean area, nice view of the ocean from the ferris wheel. Food is available and my son... More

The skee ball machines malfunction, very difficult to get the bonus score when the forty and fifty point slots don't register points, this happened on three different lanes.
