Fun escape to eat ride a few rides and play some fun old style games. Could use a little paint and a little more shade. Retail shops need to modernize and have some new selections. Probably should capitalize on ghost tours more. Maybe even add a as seen on ghost tours T shirt. Prices seemed a little high for tickets... More

The concept is very nice..an old amusements setting right on the water with a beach nearby. The reality is the rides are run down and very overpriced at $1 a ticket with most rides costing a few tickets per ride. The merry go round ride lasredess than 3mins. The "roller coaster" did not appear safe so we did not allow... More

Quaint/ old fashion amusement park. Tilt o whirl/merry go round from times gone by. Stop in and visit but don't expect hi tech. This is a gem

This was such an unusual visit for us. We came up for the beach on the Saturday of July 4th weekend. It was crazy windy, not sure what was going on but when you walked onto the beach you were assaulted by sand particles. It may have reduced the crowds because the beach was empty, or at least as empty... More

Made to sound better then it is. Nothing to do except ride a couple old rides. There isn't little shops or food like I read. Nothing there!

Buying the one price ride bracelet is a great value. The old style rides are still fun and my sons enjoy going.

We took 6 kids to the amusement park recently. We were there in late August and the place was not busy at all. The adults enjoyed the arcade while the kids enjoyed the rides. We bought all the kids wristbands. The rides and facilities are quite old and sometimes "safety" came to my mind. But in the end, everyone came... More

Changed quite a bit since I was a kid but still enjoyed the park. No admission fee to the park which is a treat!

This park is very small opened in 1879.I don't know if rides were installed that year. There are very few rides. The rides they have are some older rides that you don't see at other parks. Rides like the Galaxy coaster,The Rotor,Tip Top,Rock O Plane and an old style Himalayan ride. There are a few kiddie rides,a dark ride. There's... More
