The place overall could really use some updates. The rides made me nervous to see my kids on, especially the roller coaster. The carnies were, well typical carnies if you know what i mean. The boardwalk arcade was rather scuzzy feeling and needed and good cleaning. The kids enjoyed their time though and the games were fun. 90% of their... More

Smells bad. Homeless people everywhere. The attractions are comparable to a parking lot carnival. I would just avoid this area. So many better places to go.

We loved the lights, sounds and smells. It gave us a hint of the old boardwalks. There was an arcade, lots of carnival food like hot dogs, pizza, funnel cakes and so on. Shirts and souvenirs in a few stores made it a neat place, however only a single coaster which looked a little sketchy, a sling shot at $25... More

Prices were outrageous for everything there. We were stopped by several panhandlers. We try to help when we can, but there were far too many asking for handouts. Made us somewhat uncomfortable. We did enjoy the pier however

We always go to see the concerts. And crossing A1A is always a challenge. The lights are not in sync which would help a lot . The concerts are great and I thank all who organize and set them up.

A few funny things for kids but for adults, it looks like everything that is waterfront, including the boardwalk and hôtels, have been abandoned and no investment has been made to keep the place beautiful. It's a shame because the beach is really wonderful and the sand, just perfect, with some nice waves.

We went and the kids wanted to ride the roller coaster. We waited in line for close to an hour to get the tickets. The youngest was right at the tall enough line and they let her get a ticket. After that we waited for another 10 minutes in the line at the actual roller coaster just to be told... More

It's best in the daytime, to walk down, you can see details of their memorial & details of the nice brick pier. At nighttime, it's very dark, the pier only really has the 3 or 4 attractions, the very old roller coaster, slingshot, slide, & go carts. Only thing that looks updated is the go carts. The roller coaster I... More

I guess in all fairness, I don't know what I was expecting. I have been here numerous times over the years and it seems to always be getting a facelift but nothing ever changes. Good or bad I don't know! Still love the pizza and corn dogs at the arcade! Also love that the SKIBALL machines are still there! Fun... More
