If you know what to expect,you won't be disappointed. My kids age 7 and 9 had a blast riding the rides. They loved the roller coaster,bomber,and bumper cars. The park is really nice at night with all the lights on! Yes the rides are old,and yes the park needs updated,but it also wouldn't have the same feel either. Still a... More

This place was always retro and full of nostalgia but it has really taken a turn for the worse. It made me sad because I loved it as a kid. Needs some love to restore it.

Spent the day in Sylvan beach. Will never swim there again. Everyone was covered in blue green algae. Disgusting. Arcades and rides are showing lots of wear. Food at Eddie's still great.

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!

If you b come between Memorial and Labor Day expect the beach to be packed. The amusement park is nice for small children.

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