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.

Me and my girlfriend stopped at the Palace Playland, as it is right by the beach. We didn't do any attractions, but the Arcade was HUGE and authentic, and the games were very diverse. Of course, the machines would steal your 25 cents from time to time but we had a fun time for about 2 hours after our beach... More

The girl at the desk had an attitude. It was a bunch of young kids with no apparent supervisor. We told them that the ticket machines weren't working and she basically laughed and said well guess you'll have to come back tomorrow. She was rude and unprofessional we made her call her supervisor who appeared to be about 16 years... More

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
