Gotta see it. There is not much to dislike. Traffic can be an issue on side roads, but never not found a parking spot.

It's $10.00 just to walk on the pier even if you don't ride anything. Then it's $4 per ride for littles. So for our family of 4 it's instantly $40.00 without riding. Then many rides require an adult to accompany so you can't just buy...More

We visited the pier while on vacation with our two toddlers. There's not much to do on the pier and you can easily be done in less than an hour. Recommend skipping it.

This place was so much fun! While it was a bit pricey (about $108 for a family of four with kids over 48" tall), it was definitely worth it. I would suggest going as soon as it opens because lines are much shorter for the...More

We purchased a family four pack. It was all the rides we wanted to ride and it was $108. It's clean, well run, and the kids had fun! I do think the price was a little high especially since we didn't arrive until 4pm.

Small, but very clean and lines were short. Plenty of rides for a 4.5 year old to enjoy. Beautifully lit up at night.

Children 2 and under are free unless they want to ride a ride. Rides start at $4/ride. They have a nice double decker carousel. Also 48' and shorter prices we cheaper since they can't ride all the rides.
