I love this spot. This is a good spot for adults and kids, there is something for everyone here. Adults can rent out the yacht's or boats the kids can ride the rides and everyone can have fun all together. I'd bring lots of cash...More

We went for a day trip from Galveston and enjoyed the attractions and the food. My granddaughter enjoyed feeding the fishes and watching the feeding of the string rays.

It was ridiculously hot, but we still had a great time. Due to the short lines, we were able to ride the 10 or so rides multiple times. The folks operating the rides have zero personality and move in slow motion at all times, so...More

Fun for everyone! We joined another couple for the weekend and started at the beach and finished our time at the boardwalk. Parking garage made the area very acceptable and there are lots of places and eatery's to stay cool. Good quick trip!

Save your money and travel to the boardwalk at Galveston instead! We found this attraction to be overrated and overpriced. The rides were boring and the whole area seemed tired. Only a handful of people present when we visited (Tuesday late afternoon of first week...More

Didn't have to pay an admission price. You can buy a ticket for all the rides or just the ones you want to ride. Nice gift shops, great rides. Many excellent restaurants. Went the first of June and some things not open yet.

You can, but with all the wonderful restaurants there I wouldn't want to.
We are 4 seniors and would be coming from the Space Center for a late lunch on Thurs March 23.Are there some quiet non chain restaurants open? We would also like to see some pretty views and interesting shops. Thanks.
