Owner description: Casino Pier welcomes children, families, thrill-seekers, and boardwalk pleasure admirers. Stroll through the variety of rides our amusement park offers situated on a classic Jersey Shore pier, extending into the heart of the Atlantic Ocean. Whether you are looking to take your family to experience the rides for the first time or you are a returning visitor, with plenty of rides, cool ocean breezes, and a spectacular view, the Casino Pier amusement park has something for everyone! Breakwater Beach is a state-of-the-art water park with one of the largest interactive play area on the North Atlantic Coast. The renovation of “Jenkinson’s Breakwater Beach Waterpark at Casino Pier” (Formally Water Works) offers our customers a fun and exciting family attraction. The Casino Arcade is jam packed with all of the latest video & redemption games of chance, along with all of the classic slot machines, skee ball and pin ball games. No matter what your age, you will appreciate the variety of games in our arcade. You can win tickets that are redeemable for great prizes, take a ride on our antique carousel or compete against each other in one on our numerous racing video games.

“Fun visit to Seaside for couples”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We used a coupon from the 2012 Entertainment Book to get a BOGO pass for both the water park and the Casino Pier. You have to buy a locker if you have ANY gear if all in the party are sliding and the cost of the locker is ridiculous, I think it was $15 for the day. But you do get $5 back if you return the key at the end of your visit. The water park is mainly geared to kids, but there were about 5 slides that were good for us. Without the coupon though, I would probably go to Hurricane Harbor which would have more slides for adults. Similarly, the Casino Pier had some rides for adults, but most were for kids. The wristband for Casino Pier is not honored at other side of boardwalk, so don't waste the walk down. We did have a fun evening though with fireworks too, so it is recommended for a nice local couples night out. We had dinner at Spicy Cantina, which was very tasty with homemade guacamole, but slow service. All in all a good experience.

“My son asks for tickets for his birthday!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

You can buy tickets here before the season begins at a discount. So this year, my son asked his aunt to by him discounted tickets for his 13th birthday so that he can bring his friends along.

As long as your kids are tall enough to ride most of the rides, its a pleasant day. There's a play area for little ones, but I found the water there very cold and the playtime tedious when you're stuck there with little ones. It's also very easy to lose your youngster in the tubes and stairs of the kiddy complex.

It's best when everyone can ride the rides and even better when then can ride the rides on their own.

My best reason for recommending the area is the number of lifeguards and floatation device. As long as your child knows their limits and travels with a buddy, I feel very certain that the lifeguards can keep them safe.

Thank you for the review! Yes tickets at Easter weekend are 50% off!! We do make sure our lifeguards are plentiful and well trained to ensure your safety, but that you for being responsible and being in the water when your children are as well. Our motto at the park is "If your child is in the water, you should be too" so thanks for helping us out.

“Awesome time for the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Not too many rides and it did not help that two of the big rides were not yet open. Went memorial day weekend.

Glad you enjoyed yourself. Sorry about the rides not being opened - but we were awaiting approval from the state, so it was out of our hands. We tried. Hope to see you again!

“Lots to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Fun and lots of rides for the kids that adults can also enjoy. Wasn't crazy about the type of people that frequent Seaside Heights.
