I grew up around this area. And while i now live in a different time zone i have to say going back to visit brought back many pleasant memories. During the day the area is very family centric, with plenty to do for all ages. However, the night time crowd is quite different. It's a shame that the place gets... More

I'm not going to write a review whining about the boardwalk. We know what we're getting into when going here, a trashy, crowded, lame amusement strewn Boardwalk with overpriced games, rides and gift shops. That being said, you should go experience the essence of the jersey shore's asscrack, ride a crappy roller coaster, grab a drink at Martell's or Jenks.... More

We went to Jenkinson's Aquarium last weekend and we were pleasantly surprised by the attraction. Unfortunately a good portion of the attraction is under renovation so we weren't able to see the sea lions but my 5 children of all ages really liked it. We've been to many aquariums all over the country and, even though this one was quite... More

This is a fantastic family-friendly boardwalk. Lots of rides for younger kids (not many adult rides). Everything is safe and clean. As locals to the area, we take advantage of the "Wristband" days when a wristband can be purchased for unlimited amusement ride usage, as opposed to paying for individual ride tickets. We really love Jenk's Boardwalk.

Jenkinson's has been long established at Point Pleasant, it has a casino and a aquarium which is well maintained and is always fun for everyone, the prices are quite reasonable for anything there and my family enjoys even though now the kids are almost 30, do not worry about the damage from super storm sandy it has all been repaired

There's always something to do year round. Of course in the summer, the rides and the boardwalk games are great. (There are deals on purchasing your tickets around Easter time. Buy them early and there are GREAT discounts!) The aquarium is a perfect stop any time of year. We actually enjoy going during off-peak times. The aquarium often hosts special... More
