It is great for all ages, but especially young children. I love tat it has some of the same style rides as when I was a child.

We ventured to Gillian’s for the first time this weekend for the spring ticket sale. It was opening day so many of the rides were not yet open for the season. They have a great selection of age appropriate rides for my 4 year old! The one thing I did notice is some of the rides require what seems like... More

We took my family here this summer. It was the first my wife and her brother were here since they were kids. We took my 9 month old son for the first time. He road the Merry Go Round. The adults had fun also. This a great family place!

We visit Gillian's every summer, the $20 wristband days are the best for a large family, I don't believe the other ride areas offer this, and without it, the prices are outrageous, like 4 and 5 a ride for older kids. So, we stick with Gillian's. And on the days that the wristbands aren't available, we still walk down every... More

First of all, I don't understand the bad reviews. I have being going to Gillian's for years, and have never experienced rudeness from anyone. All the ride operators are very safety conscious. Gillian's is very clean, and they have a variety of rides for all ages. Check out their Christmas and spring tickets sales. They're a wonderful value.

Gillian's is a throwback to the past but thank heavens in the present! Great rides for all ages-- our 2 year old grandson loved the fire engines, the merry-go-round and the up and down ride we went in with him-- and so did his mother, at about that age!! It's also right on the boardwalk so views of the Ocean... More

If you have to pick between the two parks the playland park is the better of the two, especially if you have young kids, this park is just not as well kept as the other. For instance the staple of an amusement park is it's carosel, this park has an antique carosel which should be a plus, but instead it's... More

We've been to Gillian's many times, when our own kids were young, and now with our 7 year old granddaughter. A few of the old rides were lost, but those that are there look so nice and clean. The carousel is especially popular - inexpensive and a long ride. You'll see all ages enjoying themselves. Our granddaughter enjoyed all the... More

We were at our annual Family Vacation in Ocean City New Jersey with 6 houses and a lot of nieces and nephews and grandchildren. My niece brought her 3 children and I brought my 2 grandchildren. There are several kiddie rides and half of them are indoors. The kids loved the boats, cars, etc. but they really enjoyed the old... More
