This is a small amusement park with the typical rides. Nothing extravagant but a nice way to spend a little time while at the beach.

Yes, everything that most reviews say are true. It is old. The place needs TLC. It needs paint and it needs to be cleaned. However, it is an old timey amusement park and kids love it. For $20 it is day full of unlimited rides. Yes, the rides are old but safe. It's definitely more like a permanent carnival than... More

Small town amusement park with limited selection of rides that look unsafe. The Park needs some TLC, cobs webs all over and the place needs a paint job. On hot days there is no escape from the heat.

This place is really run down and rides are old and rusted. The workers act sedated, totally not helpful. Most of the arcade games are broken. Will not go back.

This should be a nice swimming beach but it is not! Beer bottles all over the picnic area and teens playing their car stereo so loud you can't talk to your friend and teens carrying on smoking "stuff". Signs all over about no dogs allowed on beach or picnic area and about 24 hour surveillance. Really?!!!!! Where is the surveillance... More
