My 2 year old son had plenty of rides to go on here. From the carousel, boat ride, to the train we rode with him that took us around the whole park. There were also the construction theme individual type rides you might find in a store that were just the right speed for him.

Not for teenagers. Perfect for younger kids: toddlers to ten year olds. Any older and they are bored in 10 minutes!

From North to South, there are few places like Ocean City for clean, safe, old-fashioned boardwalk rides and fun. Go to Gilligan's Wonderland Pier at night and enjoy the lights! The variety of rides always put adrenaline and dopamine both in churn! A book of tickets is the best way to go. We usually get a big book, as the... More

Went with two adult couples & four kids aged 13, 9, 8, and 1. Fun was had by all! A lot of the rides were pretty typical classics - ferris wheel, swings, bumper cars, log flume, haunted house, small roller coaster, gravitron..... but they are classic for a reason because they're winners every time across the generations. If you're there... More

We took our 1 1/2 year old to Gillians for the first time and she loved it! There were only about 5-6 rides that she was able to ride, but given they were about $3-$5 each to ride, it wasn't that bad to spend about $25 for a couple hours of fun for her and videos/pictures that are keepsakes. It... More

Kids had a blast at Gillian's Wonderland Pier. So much for them to do, right from the 2 year old up to our 18 year old. Prices weren't too bad, I'd suggest buying the biggest ticket bundle for the value of it. We bought $50 at a time.

I have been going to Wonderland Pier since I was a child and my children who are now grown love it there and still go. There are rides for everyone young and old. It's exceptionally clean. Rides are safe. Prices are reasonable. I refer all of my customers and visitors to Ocean City to Wonderland Pier. To me and my... More

We visited Gillian's Wonderland Pier when we were at OCNJ this summer. We happened to go when they were running an afternoon special---3 tickets to ride on any ride, which on some rides was half the number of tickets you would normally need. You need tickets to ride each ride---no option for wristbands for unlimited riding---but our kids enjoyed it... More

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.
