I guess the rides would have been fine but after paying $30 for each all day bracelet, out of no where there came a flash rain shower. They closed the park and even though we had a receipt that showed we just entered, they offered no recompense. $60 is a lot to loose especially when you are so looking forward... More

Our kids (ages 20, 17, 12) rode the rides together. The 20 and 12 year old got woozy after about 5 rides. The 17 year old is more of an adventurer and kept going. They spin, go upside down, and spin some more. They had fun but were done after awhile. There are rides for little kiddies, so that's good.... More

Its a great time for the kids and well maintained but it can be very pricey to buy ticket books as they go fast with each ride about 3-4 tickets each. Use their website for coupons and special deals.

A great day at the beach and pier. Kind of a shocker seeing as the last time I rode a ferris wheel it cost maybe 50 cents and it was $4.80. It was a slap in the face that I am getting OLD. Still had a good time and it was a beautiful day..

The kids loved it. It's what you expect for a constantly run amusement park in an old board walk city. I loved the nostalgia of it. It looked safe. Not too expensive. After playing in the ocean, this was the kids fav attraction in Old Orchard.

This place has the best rides that you would find at any fair just much cleaner and without the traveling roadies. Great games without the boisterous attendant. Great parking with tons of food. Cool boardwalk experience.

This looked like a small, dinky few old rides on the beach and turned out to be a ton of fun even for two couples in our late twenties! We hit a bunch of rides, played some games, and had a great few hours there! Plus they have every type of carnival food you could ask for, YUM!

Lots of fun at the playland! My kids are 7-7-9 and loved the rides and didn't find the waits long at all. The games were fun and affordable and we got the all day pass for under $100 for all three kids. We want to come back next year and maybe the year after that too!

2 adults and 2 kids, we managed to blow $100 on a couple quick rides and some pizza (yes the pizza place is separate, but you have to eat). We didn't play any games as most were $2-$5 to play. Tickets for rides are insanely prices, basically Six Flags prices a place 1/10th the size. Bought a 50 pack of... More
