We bought wrist bands, they were good all day and into the night. We rode all the rides but a few and had a great time.

The excitement of coming to OOB is the Palace Playland. HOWEVER, it is sooooo expensive. Please plan on spending at least $75 per child to ride SOME of the rides and play a few games (that's just for one visit). I really wish there was a cheaper alternative. 20 Tickets for $25 dollars and splitting the ticket book between two... More

Fun place when games in the arcade are working. If they tell you the rides open at 2:30 DO NOT BELIEVE them. Kiddie rides are open, none of the other rides open. I wish the young adults could get here on time as kids are waiting.everyone at palace play land is very friendly, just not on time. I was here... More

We had a great visit here. Very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and friendliness of the park. The 'carnival' games were fun too and not impossible to win like a typical carnival. Our kids won so much stuff that we couldn't take it all home and gave it to some kids who lived there before we left. Our kids enjoyed... More

I come here most summers with friends, and was able to make the trek down on the train on this hot summer day. The beach was packed, but the arcades and rides didn't get cranking until late-afternoon. It is always nostalgic for me to come here: something I've been doing since I was a teenager, which was a long time... More

I'm sometimes surprised, whether here or on other sites, at some of the complaints. People clearly not in the mood for a certain kind of establishment complain bitterly about it not being something other than what it is. Some seem to have adopted the old Yogi Berra line "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded" as a life motto. This... More

Great family park right on the ocean. Prices aren't to bad for this type of venue. Lots of kids rides and games with a few more daring ones for the older kids and adults. It also has an arcade with games.

Felt like a little kid again, playing on the rides and playing the games. The venue is open until midnight - so gives you plenty of time to enjoy the rides and food and atmosphere. Love Old Orchard and the little town and shops in the nearby area. Could be a little cheaper per ride, but overall amazing time.
