Casino Pier is an old favorite for me. Growing up my family used to take Day Trips to Seaside Heights and after lunch we always spent time on the boardwalk and Casino Pier. While some of the rides have changed basically what you have there are all of your typical "Carnival Type" favorites along with a Log Flume, a couple thrill rides, and a few small roller coasters. The pier isn't immaculate but they do keep it pretty clean, and besides lots of burnt out lights, the rides look to be well maintained. The staff is very attentive as well and are always looking out for the safety of the guests by double checking safety restraints, etc. Overall its a great place to enjoy some time with the whole family. While you're there take a ride on the scenic sky ride and enjoy the views over the island towards the bay and the ocean, and don't miss the best "Musik Express" ride around.
A quick note about Seaside Heights, people over exaggerate it quite a bit. It's not Wildwood, but its not as crazy as many people make it seem. Stay away from major holidays and you will be fine. The daytime is loaded with families and a typical night looks like what you would find at the mall on a Friday night, so go and have a good time!
