We didn't actually go on the pier but they offer a fireworks display every Sunday night that is fabulous. Right on the seawall at 37th Street. They're so close you feel like you can touch them. Just a fabulous 15-minute show which, I believe, begins...More

My family really enjoyed this ride park. I found the prices to be a bit much but it was worth it. I would recommend going here on a cooler day. It was almost 100 degrees when we visited, way too warm!

The pier gives you a feeling of being in a movie or being back in the 50s. It's kind of cool and cheesy at the same time. It costs 10 dollars just to get in, and each ride is between 4-6 dollars, so it's pretty...More

I'm not a big fan of amusement park rides, but this was everything you could imagine a beach boardwalk would be. Tame and adventure rides all overlooking the Galveston beach & gulf! From the carousel to Ferris wheel to roller coaster- there's an experience for...More

Wow! Two hours for the pier, and the previous comments are all quite accurate. Having some great "teenagers" and TEXAS style food on the pier is defintely a must. You will not be disappointed!
