It's an older but fun place to stop.

Fun rides for the kids, nice beach, some places to eat. It is a good place to bring younger children to have a good time on little money.

I used to work at this park when I was in college and actually met my wife here so it has a place in my heart. I also visited all the time as a kid when the park used to be a great family park and being less than 30 minutes away it was a close getaway. However towards the... More

Kind a boardwalk type atmosphere. Fun rides for the kids, nice beach, some places to eat. The place is old but the kids had fun. Overall a little dirty. Probably would not go back again. Not much else to do there except for the handful of kiddie rides and the beach. An OK place to stop at if you're passing... More

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. If they planted some trees that might help. The Workers do not enjoy their jobs at all (they have emotionless looks on... More
