“The most fun ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Go here, and visit the Stingray Reef. It is amazing! You can pet the stingrays and feed them fish from your hand!! We have a 3 yr old, and he did it also. This is something we will never forget. There is so much to do at the boardwalk as well; a train ride, ride a speedboat called "the Beast", tons of restaurants, carnival rides, prize games.. on Mondays it's Kid Crazy Monday, with Karaoke and $5 beast rides! Tuesdays they have a tribute band, and Fridays they have a firework show! There is also a huge fountain with the "jumping water" that the kids love to play in, so you might want to make sure to bring extra clothes for your kids, they will get soaked!

“Fun place with views of Galveston Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is an amusement park for the kids, including a killer roller coaster, surrounded by a wide choice of restaurants. The restaurants include Red, which is a really good sushi place. Lots of other things to choose from. Well worth the trip to come see it.

“Very busy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The free fireworks show was lots of fun. There was plenty of room for a large crowd and people were very friendly.

“Super fun!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I loved it. The rides looked like a lot of fun but I didn't get a chance to go on any. The line to get tickets was extremely long. It was a Friday night though, so it's to be expected. They also have day long passes to ride rides all day.

There are also great resturants and wonderful views of the water. They have fireworks on Friday and Saturday nights.

It was just a very fun experience. Plus, it is free to go onto the boardwalk. (Pleasure pier has a fee just to enter.)

“the rainy day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

we had fun even thou we had to go in and out of the rain the beast was lots of fun, the kids like the rides here but we didn't get to ride all the rides. Some of the lines are so long but I guess that's every park you go to. At least they have stores to shop and cool off in the food there is not bad just depends on what you prefer.
