Of course my 11 year old "needed" to go here while we vacationed in Newport Beach. I've seen enough midways and boardwalks to be concerned, but was pleasantly surprised. The place is very clean and there are enough games and rides to keep kids and...More

My son and I took a walk while my husband was in a conference. The fun zone was a typical amusement park.

We had a great evening at the Fun Zone with our boys. Great views, rides, and treats. Not cheap, but we didn't expect it to be.

Always fun to go watch the kids in the fun zone. Always something going on. They had a field trip when I was there and they were taking the kids out on sail boats around the harbor.

We visited ocean quest and the kids decided to go on the ferris wheel, it was a decent price, not too much to do but the atmosphere is nice. It gets pricey if you want to do the ferris wheel and the arcade with kids.
