Stopped by Gillian's Wonderland Pier on our last evening in Ocean City. There are some good rides for a little one, many that parents can go on with them. (ours is only 15 months old). I appreciated that the carousel doesn't require the baby to have their own ticket if you are standing right there with them. The only downside... More

Lots of fun rides to a variety of kids....it's a bit pricey as you pay per ride. However - if you buy online during the year - you can buy a voucher for half price tickets!

Had a great evening there with my grandchildren. They have all the rides we like, including a giant ferris wheel. We will definitely be returning there next summer.

We always make a stop a wonderland pier while visiting the boardwalk. The first thing we noticed is that many of the rides have increased their ticket value. Even on a sale day...like three ticket Thursday it can add up quick! The one positive may be this keeps the lines short! Lots of kids rides and fun things to do... More

We have had a vacation home in Ocean City for 35 years and Wonderland has been a frequent stop for all our children. My now 10 year old rode his first ride, the fire engine when he was 2 years old at Wonderland. It was always a good value because my dad would make a trek down at Easter to... More

They have both small rides for the young ones and crazy rides for the teenagers! The have special wrist band days or you can buy tickets usually Easter Weekend and the Weekend before and save money since they are 1/2 price. They never expire!

Located at an end of the Ocean City boardwalk, Wonderland is a cute amusement park. Old-fashioned rides accompanied by oodles of smiles and laughter - a lovely way to spend a night. My only complaint is that the least expensive ride was $3. If I wanted to take a train ride around the park with my niece, it would have... More

They let solo on. The view is good. The wait is short. The wheel is a giant kaleidescope. You see Atlantic City up there.

This historic amusement pier has rides for both the young and the old. Kept clean. Always safe. Fun and very family oriented. People in my generation who took their kids there 30+ years ago are now taking their grandkids there.

We've been here a few times over the past few times and are disappointed every time. My biggest problem with Gilians is the fact that parents have to pay to take the infants and toddlers. Some rides can be $5 so that's $10 total for one ride! We are regular goers to castaways on 11th st because we can ride... More
