Ocean City has many, many activities and amusement parks that are perfect for families traveling with children:

Castaway Cove at Playland is located on the Boardwalk, and it’s an amusement park that has been open for 47 years. The park features rides and entertainment suitable for children, adults, and families – such as bumper cars, a Ferris wheel, trains, and tons of more “thrill” rides for kids and adults who are brave. Visitors purchase tickets then trade the tickets for rides. Each ride costs a specific number of tickets – more information is on the Castaway Cove at Playland website.

Gillian's Island Water Park and Adventure Golf is another amusement area in Ocean City . The water park is huge and consists of all types of water activities and water slides. Kids (and adults) of all ages will beg to come to this park every time Ocean City is visited.

Gillian’s Wonderland Pier is part of Gillian’s P ark , but it is an amusement park instead of a water park. The park has been open for business since 1965 and has been providing “pay as you ride” amusement for visitors for over 50 years! Seeing and experiencing Gillian’s Wonderland Pier is a tradition, and should not be missed when in the Ocean City area.
