A family trip to OC (for us) always includes a night or two at Gillian's. Even at the height of the season, the ride lines are not too long, and the rides seem well maintained. The pier is better for children 12 and under, but even my 15 year old enjoyed being snatched by the Alien Abduction or squeezed into... More

Nice carnival type atmosphere with a lot of children's rides. Very clean. There are bathrooms located near the Rip Tide ride. Great place to take the kids.

Gillians has been family owned for many years and it shows. It is fun for kids of all ages. The rides are suitable for all, we always take our grandchildren there when they visit. No visit is complete without Johnsons Caramel Popcorn, so make sure to go there as well.

It has many rides for all ages. Weekend nights get very crowded and the ride tickets are very expensive. The have a family pack of tickets and they have half price sales online during the year.

My grandkids went on rides that cost between $5 and $6 each, and the rides were over in a flash -- way too quick for the amount of money spent. For example, the roller coaster made just one revolution. The kids had been looking forward all year to their visit, and we limited them to three rides each due to... More

Gillian's Wonderland will make you smile and laugh. Bring your whole family thrill seekers. There is plenty to chose from. From the log-flume to roller-coasters. Not a thrill seeker no worries, play some games at the arcade.

This place has all the classics! Most of the rides are suitable for the little one's to ride around and have fun, while still having some bigger rides for the older kids to enjoy. The ferris wheel is a must do, with great views of the boardwalk & beach while riding around. Tickets here are pricey, so keep that in... More

It is very difficult to go wrong with rides at the store. There is a nice variety for both young and old but the prices are a bit hard to swallow.

We have stayed across from Gillian's Wonderland to be close so the grand children would be able to walk to it . It is a very clean park with a lot of kids rides. It is a very safe place to go with the small ones.
