Kemah - Family Fun

What can I say, the last time I visited Kemah was in 2003. I lived in Houston for a while, so it was the place to get away from Houston and be close to the ocean. The boardwalk is... read more

This was a great place for a weekend getaway. You must try out the beast- that's a great ride for all ages. Leisure cruise is relaxing and has appetizers/refreshments. The boardwalk is fun for all ages! And the aquarium with its stingrays is awesome!

I took my 14 year old daughter for a weekend getaway and stumbled upon Kemah Boardwalk which was only 30 minutes from the Houston area. We brought the all day passes which was $25 a piece and rode every ride the staff was great no long wait time for the rides and the live entertainment was great!!!

What can I say, the last time I visited Kemah was in 2003. I lived in Houston for a while, so it was the place to get away from Houston and be close to the ocean. The boardwalk is still a fun place, it's grown from what I remembered. A lot more shops and restaurants and after a storm hit... More

We bought the city pass and opted to stop here after our trip to NASA. The rides were fair like, but fun. It was a Monday night so there was little to no wait to ride. The Bullet was surprisingly fun. I typically don't like wooden coasters, but tthis one is worth a try. I think the rides are a... More

I love Kemah Boardwalk, either weekend or weekdays there's always something to do around, boating, food, fishing and entertainment .... I call that, my backyard away from home....golf cart, biking or just walking...

We went to Kemah the day after Labor Day, think we were the only ones there, not much open but it was crowdless which is always good. Saw pelicans, catfish as well as seabirds etc.

We spent an hour or so on a Friday night at the Boardwalk. It was expensive, its about $5 a ride or I think around $19 for unlimited rides for under 48 inches and $25 for over 48 inches. The rides were ok. Unfortunately it was quiet when we were there so it meant one operator was in charge of... More
