We have been here several times and always enjoy the Palace Playland. I grew up in MD going to Ocean City. OOB reminds me of how OC used to be and the Palace Playground reminds me of the Mid-Atlantic oceanside amusement parks that I grew up with. This place is a little pricey, but lots of fun for the whole... More

Once you've made up your mind to spend the big bucks on this honky-tonk beachfront amusement park -- just forget the expense and enjoy the experience. My 10 and 12 y-o grandchildren loved it. The rides and games, neon lights, junk food and crowds were all part of the fun. We arrived in the afternoon and stayed past dark. I'd... More

The Playland was surprisingly good! They had a ton of rides and games to choose from but I thought that the price was to high! I i can get a season pass to six flags for the same price for one night at Play land! Thus, when in Rome, I guess you just have to do it, especially when you... More

This place looks really really cool and I can't wait to come back when it is opened. We were there the 3rd weekend in September. I think we just missed it. There were still some food vendors open around the pier.

This is not a 5 flags theme park: It's rather closer to the Santa Monica Pier in CA. It's totally old fashioned (I used to ride the kiddy ones when I was a kid. I am now 40ish and they are the same!!), fun and family oriented. There are some nice one for teens as well to get the adrenaline... More

Nice amusement park for younger kids. A little on the expensive side if you buy single tickets. The muti day passes seem like a much better deal.

in the past my family has gone on some rides, but not this year, however they always go to the arcade and absolutely love it. Entertainment for whatever amount you want to spend and for whatever time you want to be there.

This is not what I go to the beach for. It was an old fashioned amusement park with games and rides all of which seemed very expensive. But if you're there, no harm walking around.
