Been going to Ocean City for 40 years now, and this place is always booming, with the right kind of rides for all ages, and the lines are never too long.

Wonderland is wonderful. Food, rides, for young and old. Clean and family-friendly. After Labor Day, it only opens on weekends.

I recently was there with my adult daughter for her Birthday. We had fun on the Merry Go Round and Ferris Wheel. View of OC and ocean was spectacular from the Ferris Wheel. We were glad to see it in full operation on a Sunday evening. Clerk was helpful and patient as we tried to figure out how many tickets... More

Watching my Granddaughter on the rides make my life complete. Its seems like yesterday her Mommy, my daughter was on those little rides. They had so much fun, its just so fulfilling to see them having so much fun. The only thing that would make it better is if it opened a bit earlier, for people not staying overnight, it... More

Needs repair and updating. My grandson loves the monkey band. It is a group of animated Monkey characters that play within a Plexiglas cage. Unfortunately, it hasn't been repaired or updated all summer if not for years. At the beginning of summer, one of five monkeys didn't move at all. At the end of summer they removed him. The monkey...

Yes buy your ticket ahead in the spring and you will not think about the tickets I ride the rides. Bathrooms are close by. Rides are alway fun and line move really fast. Workers are helpful with all children being strapped Into the seats. His summer monday nights was a awesome evening trip to ocean city!

This place has been there since I was a kid. Always fun for toddlers and parents. A lot is in the shade too. Get half priced tickets at Easter week online or in person. We love this place now for our grandkids.

This place has lots of good deals (three ticket days, wrist band afternoons), but it is really expensive if you don't happen to be there during one of their specials. There are also deals on buying tickets during off season but if you miss those deals, you are looking at an expensive amusement park. The rides are nostalgic for those... More

We have two small children and make a point to visit the Pier at least once a summer. The kids love it but it is so expensive!! When my husband got on the carousel with our 3 yr old he was told he had to give tickets as well. That is ridiculous. He was only on there to hold onto... More
