Visited Kemah boardwalk on my visit to Houston. I must say this is one of the best boardwalk in this area with lot of rides for kids, very good restraints, ferries. It deserves a visit if you are visiting Houston.

The Kemah Boardwalk was quite busy on a Friday night. After the fireworks the rides all became half price which made the cost a lot more reasonable. Some the the ride operators were more interested in socializing than doing their job. The Aviator took way too long to load because of the chit chat, probably could have been done in... More

Got the all day tickets. My 12 year old enjoyed the roller coaster and all the action rides. My 4 year old enjoyed the rides for her age. Happy overall. Went on a Thursday night, it was not super crowded. Nice. Seagulls are annoying and a bit intimidating if you try to feed the fish.

We went to the Kemah Boardwalk on Friday June 27th. We got a parking place right at the front. We rode nearly all the rides, and the only wait he had was for the swings. But that was because they had just opened because it had been a windy day. The rollercoaster was fast and fun, our only complaint, you... More

We visited on 4th of July weekend so it was pretty packed. It definitely was a nice place to stroll and have dinner. Great for kids and families, but toooo many kids when trying to enjoy a couple's night. We would like to go back at a different time.

Have an all-day/all-ride pass for about 11 rides ($18-23 range). Son evaluated rides as good for about 8 years to teens. Hubby said wooden roller coaster is a classic bone-shaking wooden coaster. (I'm a bit over-the-hill for rides--even the beautiful merry-go-round.) Other people's grandkids seemed to enjoy it. Quality restaurants. I would follow up a mid-week visit to Space Center... More

We took our 7 year old grandson on Saturday and it was very hot. We arrived around 11:30am and were able to park in the garage for $7. We bought the wrist bands so we can ride all of the rides, but the roller coaster and the drop zone were not running (the 2 biggest rides). We went on the... More

Stopped by there on a weekday, in the morning, while there weren't hardly any people there and rode a few rides. There were 4 of us, and it was almost 50 dollars just for the 4 of us to ride 2 rides, and one of us to ride the carrousel. They wanted me to purchase a ticket to ride w/... More
