We highly recommend the Ferris wheel. We didn’t really ride many of the other rides because they seemed to be more focused on children but the Ferris wheel is a must because there was a great view of the boardwalk and ocean.

While visiting Ocean City we took the grandkids to Jolly Roger. They have lots of things for kids, no matter how old, to do. During the afternoon there is a water park that you can try. We went in the evening.

This amusement park in Ocean City, MD is perhaps decent family fun, but much of the rides are uninteresting and they are all way overpriced. I actually liked the older amusement park across the street by the boardwalk much better - it has some really...More

Tried to go on weekend in season and there was no parking. Literally. So we drove off. Yes, there is only so much space in OC for parking but still, if you can't get a spot at all you're out of luck.

I had such a great time at this park. My 8 year old was so afraid of the slides until he got on one and was addicted. There was fun for the entire family. We arrived around 3pm and it closed at 6 pm so...More

This was the Jolly Roger on the boardwalk. The cost to enter is free. The rides are a bit pricey. The park was very dirty--garbage cluttered all over. The bathrooms were filthy. There was a strong smell of garbage in lots of areas. It looked...More

I took two teens (17 &16) there. The place is super clean and well kept. We did the go karts and had a great time. Several of the staff members were younger foreign workers on visas, so there was a bit of a language barrier...More

We were amazed at all the activities offered at Jolly Roger. My 13yr old son thoroughly enjoyed himself at the speedway/karting. There are several well designed, challenging tracks to tryout. I thought the price was also affordable. We purchased 6 rides for $36. Definitely recommend,...More

Our mini vacation is approaching quickly. Next week we will be in Ocean city for the first time. We’re trying to make the most our of our time here and I wondered how is the Jolly Roger Amusement Park? It’s blocks from our hotel and seems like we could even walk.. I know Trimpers was mentioned but this is closer and we like the idea of not driving. Also a favorite mini golf? We are also trying to decide between the pirate cruise or Frontierland. So many decisions. Kids are 2 -8 year old boys...More

Jolly Roger's is great! And it has something for every age including a water park for all ages, rides for all ages, zip lines, go carts, and mini golf. And Planet Maze is right next door for laser tag. The four older children will love that, and mom and dad can play too. They also have mini golf. It's a lot of fun. Jolly Roger's webpage usually has discount coupons on it to save a couple of dollars. As for Frontiertown or the Duckaneer, both are fun, but if you have the baby with you...More
