In my personal opinion I believe that this place is ok but there's some cons I have. About 90% of the attractions are for children around 2-7 years old. Then after that it kinda starts to get boring. I guess they do have some good rides like the himalaya and the log flume and the rides that'll make you nauseas... More

We have been going too Gillian's once a week in the summer, for 25 years now. It is a great pier full of safe rides. It definitely is geared towards the younger child. The rides are slower, gentler. It helps to buy your tickets at Christmas time or Easter when they have specials. Tickets never expire. Both of my daughter's... More

Great fun for the family. Be sure to buy Gillians wonderland tickets during their online sale around easter. Tickets are half price. Khor Bros custard is the best! Save room for all the yummy boardwalk eats!

We took two trips here with our kids this summer. In both cases, they loved it, but Mom and Dad enjoyed the second visit much better. First visit was on a Saturday night. It was much more crowded, and $50 in tickets only kept the kids occupied for about 30 minutes. For the second visit, we went on a Wednesday... More

We always enjoy a tour through Gillian's Wonderland Pier, and a few fun and crazy rides. It's an annual tradition! Good family fun.

Our previous visit we went to the other place for amusement rides but decided to try Gillian's. The ferris wheel is huge and offered great views from the top. Kids had fun on the Music Express. I think a few of the rides require too many tickets. I'd like to see some of the little kid rides only be 2... More

Took my two year old. They had a "all you can ride" special for three hours, which we took advantage of. Good variety and availability of rides for young children (and older children). Staff was very friendly at every encounter we had. Will come again!

When our kids were toddlers/preschoolers, Gillian's was wonderful because they have a lot of rides in their front area that cater to younger kids. On top of that, their rides have reasonable space in between so it isn't super difficult to navigate with a stroller. However the past two years, we've watched the tickets needed for each ride really take... More

Nice rides for people of all ages. Priced like a carnival. I wouldn't want to push a stroller through at night. But that is because it is so crowded. A favorite spot for vacationers.
