    It's pkay
    I didn't like it. But my kid did. Fyi, you can't tolerate spinning rides this isn't for you. Rates are $35 per rider and $20 for video/ photos. Worth it if kids really, really want to do. Other than that, it's over priced.

    Fun family place
    Such nice, friendly people work at this amusement park! It was windy, chilly and misty but the crew made it fun with their pleasant personalities. The rides were clean and safe. The kids had a great time - there was even mini golf. The operator of the whale ride was very friendly and involved with the kids. The team at the place to buy burgers, fries, etc. were all extremely friendly and helpful.

    Best for Littles and up to 8! Whale Guy RuLeS!
    The best for little ones up to 8, with lots of rides for young ones and even rides you can share with them. The games are cheaper than boardwalk games and the prizes are better too. We returned for a second day just for the Whale Riders ride and the Whale guy. He's the bomb and makes the ride experience so fun for the kids. We loved him and it made our experience so memorable. We will definitely come back next year!

    A good time at the water park
    A great mid sized water park but I warn you to get there early otherwise good luck finding a place to sit. There are lines on some slides just like any other park. Food prices are comparable to other parks as well. Get a locker, it’s just a way to keep valuables safe and secure.

Children 18months and under that age were charged same amount as other age/older children who could independently ride the rides. Meanwhile they don’t allow little ones of course alone without parents, so if you want your 13-14 month old to ride a little carousel, you get charged double. This place was ran by bunch of rednecks, who seemed completely uninterested in any suggestions parents were giving. It’s a shame because they would rather make double the amount on little ones than to have fair pricing. There should be only charging for parents who have to go with children under two. Will not be going there next year.

Disappointed in my recent visit. Not only was it overpopulated, Jolly Roger did not have enough tubes to accommodate the amount of people they let through the gates. I was there close to 2 hours before I was able to obtain two single tubes by kind individuals. I saw several people arguing with other park attendees hoarding the tubes. Just wow. The area that housed the tubes was filled with deflated tubes. People were actually trying to blow them up using their ‘breath’. At $44 per person you guys need to do better. The park was overfilled and unable to accommodate this large group of people. I don’t know how this facility runs on the weekdays but avoid it at all costs on the weekends.

Unless you are going with your children don't patronize this place, at least for the pier and 30th at locations. It is over priced unless you are buying the armband, which is only good for 4 hours. They raised the price while we were here and failed to update the price list on site as well as on the website. I spent 60 bucks and the two of us only rode 5 rides. Most rides are made for children from 36-48 inches in height. The haunted house left much to be desired offering no real jump scared at all.

Small crowds make for a good experience here and not much wait time for each track. Ample parking. Attentive staff at the ticket office. Various tracks provide fun for all skill levels from a figure 8 track to a F1 experience requiring a driver's license. There was a small video games area that I did not spend time at. Cost is reasonable and most tracks had dual rider cars.

My wife went here today with a friend and small children including my 8 year old son. They measured him and he was over 48 inches which is correct. After measuring him Aybree the staff member said even though he is tall enough by the measurement for a ride a ride operator may still not let him on a ride which requires him to be 48 inches tall. When my wife explained well he is 48 inches tall she was told it’s up to the right operator and he could still be denied admission to a ride. My wife said if this happens in my able to get a refund for my pass if I purchase it and she said no and too “get the F—- out of my face” I couldn’t spell out what was said on this forum. This was said in front of minor kids including my 8 year old. My wife asked for a supervisor at which time Harper came over and told her there’s nothing he could do about it since he didn’t hear it and he proceeded to stand around and laugh with other staff members while pointing at my wife about it. This is not the place you want your kids. Guess my money will be spent elsewhere in the future since this is how management handles things.

How can they call this an Amusement Park, right off the main drag through Ocean City??!! Since researching "things to do in Ocean City" online, I had started receiving email after email advertising this Amusement Park which I imagined to at least be on the same scale as Six Flags or something similar. NOT!! It seems more like a carnival that you might see in the parking lot of a shopping center occasionally or the County Fair, but under no circumstances would I call this an Amusement Park, which is just downright deceptive, in my opinion. So, if you've never been to Ocean City, don't expect this to be what it sounds like because it ain't!

Half the park was out of service. How can you charge full price and “unlimited” rides when half the rides were out of service? The answer is you CAN, but you SHOULDN’T. Disapponting. Avoid the one on the boardwalk and do the park attached to the water park.

Great for kids of all ages! My 2-year-old granddaughter loved it! Lots of rides for parents to go on with their children, as well as rides for the children to go on by themselves. A wristband for the evening is $40. Plenty of games to play as well. We did just one game because it was $5, and you can blow through money quick at that rate. There are a few food concessions as well. I got a bottle of water out of a vending machine, and it was $2.75. Most of the ride operators were friendly but a couple were not. The absolute BEST was the guy on the whale ride! He was phenomenal and interacted with the kids the whole ride. I wish I got his name to give him proper props!

We always enjoy a stop at Jolly Roger, our favorite being the Swings. Clean, enjoyable park.
Our only complaint is the few rides you get for the price. Instead of 6 points per ride, 1 point per ride would be more of a savings -3 rides x 2 people racks up points on the prepaid card very quickly!
All in all, fun times for all

Kids running slides are not trained

The girl managing the green slide wasn’t paying attention to the riders going down and let a rider go down right behind me and my son. The result was me getting kicked in the face because I hadn’t cleared the slide. Ended up with multiple bruises and a cut tongue and sprained jaw.

Lifeguards we’re not helpful and first aid station attendees are not trained for injuries. They couldn’t even give me water to rinse my mouth out. Management wouldn’t do much either.

What was supposed to be a fun outing ended up being a trip to the hospital

Will not return
