A quick visit with my grand daughter

A great place to take the kids for amusement rides. Rides for all age kids. It was crowded the midweek evening we were there.

Been taking our kids here since they were toddlers. Now they are 10 and 12 and still will ride the rides every time we visit the boardwalk. Daughter likes the log plunge and son gets a huge kick out of the alien abduction. Great fun for families, kids, groups any time of day. Always find we spend 1-3 hours here... More

Always come to Gilligan's with the kids when we visit the boardwalk. Kids have a great time. Amusements are fun and there are rides for every age. Employees are very nice, and helpful. Restrooms were clean, which was surprising.

Great for smaller children. Not too many thrill rides for the bigger kids. Always worth a stop in to get a pressed penny for your collection and to visit a classic landmark of OC.

This Pier is overpriced and doesn't even offer quality rides. Maybe this is cute for little kids, but the only ride worth going on is the monorail train for anyone over the age of 5. It gives you a nice view of the area and the beach.

I'll start by saying we got these tickets around Christmas when they are half price, the number of tickets per ride has gone up again. Cheapest is 4 per ride. Most rides the kids wanted to do were 5 or 6, some of which an adult had to ride along due to height restrictions. Fine, I get it, but don't... More

This attraction was pretty pricey, but we still had a good time. Each of the rides 'cost' three or more tickets. But there were plenty of thrills.

Lots of kiddie rides, and some are even for adults. Located right on the boardwalk in Ocean City. A great place to try to wear out your kids before they wear you out.

This place recently raised their tickets needed per ride to make it a total ripoff. The only times worth going are during 3 ticket "magic" hours on Tues and Thurs. And obviously, only if you're going on 5 or 6 ticket rides, to double the value of your tickets. A family of four on the flume ride at 6 tickets... More
