    Great Value, Lots of Fun!
    We spent an afternoon here and had a blast! We knew exactly what we wanted to ride, and what we didn't care about, so were able to use tickets wisely. There is no fee for admission, and parking is free, so we had a great time as a couple for a total of $60.

    Very fun
    We walked here from our hotel each night and my 6 year old absolutely loved it. Good variety of rides for his age and arcade games. Husband loved the ice cream shop. Perfect sunset views from the beach behind it.

    Just a little better than a carnival
    We came here since it looked fun but really wasnt. It took us almost 30 min to park VERY far away. (parking was free though) It was crowded and rides looked really old. Every ride had a long line. We actually came there to also play mini golf and it was way too busy. Only good thing was the dole whip stand.

    Easy to spend!
    The main attraction is the old classic coaster, but there's a number of smaller rides and experiences (like lazer maze, zip wires etc). There's amusements too. Plenty to entertain the family in a small area, so watch you don't find yourself spending more than you intended! Queues weren't bad even on a Saturday late afternoon/early evening. Didn't have to wait more than a few minutes for anything, except for buying tickets. For some reason there was no queue when we first went but when we went to buy more a 20 minute queue.

    Improved since my last visit
    It's been about 6 years since I've been here, and they've made some improvements and additions. A few more rides for kids, a 18-hole mini golf course, and a few more established eateries. The Arcade room is still there, but a lot of the machines were old and malfunctioning. Parking is still free (if you can find a spot), so it's worth a stop if you want to be close to the beach in a carnival vibe.

    Old School Beachside Amusement Park Feel
    We had a great time at Belmont Park. While there are not an overwhelming amount of attractions to do there are enough things to keep you busy for 2-3 hours. Rides are maintained impeccably and nearly every area was kept clean and tidy. There is a good mix of indoor/outdoor activities of all different types. Tips: Buy the City Pass to save some money which comes with unlimited rides. Get there early. Parking is free and if you get there when they open the lines are extremely short for the first few hours. You can maximize your ride time early on and then enjoy the mini-golf, carnival games, and dining establishments during the afternoon. Also, there are some restaurants located on the street adjacent to the park. We walked and ate lunch over there savings some money but also having a great time with little to no wait. You can also walk the boardwalk outside the park, visit the beach area, and also some of the gift shops right outside the venue. This place is perfect for a good weather day! The only thing that was kind of sad and a little off the whole day was that none of the park employees seemed happy. They were all pretty miserable and seemed to have little regard for smaller children or helping out those that needed a little extra time boarding the rides due to an impairment or disability. Made me wonder if the working conditions are poor and that was the reason for the long faces or if this is just the new reality of how customer facing roles act nowadays. We noticed this across the entire staff from ticketing to gaming so it wasn’t just a “one off” type of vibe.

    Belmont Park WEEKDAY review
    We visited Belmont Park on a Thursday so they were “upgrading” the park. So because of this not all of the rides were open. There were maybe six things for us to choose from like laser tag, mini golf, bumper cars, etc. The good thing about going on these days is there was not a lot of people. We got a thirty dollar bracelet that let us go on unlimited rides for the day, on busy days they are sixty dollars. It would be better if more of the rides were open on upgrading days though. There was not a whole lot to go through with limited rides, shops, and restaurants. Overall I would recommend going to Belmont Park, but if you go on a weekday, be prepared for not a lot of options.

Our kids had a great time at Belmont Park. It was a good place to hang out and take in the beach. It was free to park and to get into the park area. There was easy access to the beach where the kids also had a great time. Depending on the ages of your kids you need to see whether a pass or individual ride tickets are more worth it.

This was my daughter's favorite attraction. We could've spent all day here if we didnt have a flight to return back to Florida. There is so much to do. I highly advise getting the all you can ride pass. The only negative was the go karts not being included. The track is small and the time is limited for $10 additional. Other than that we loved it and cannot wait to return

Plenty to do , price is reasonable for what you get. Plenty of rides and attractions- my kids are 7-9 and was perfect although there are Adult rides too.
The food was excellent..The Pizza is one of the best I ever had ..about $20...the Burgers etc were good too ..
Parking was a bit tight but there is extra parking round the side if you can't park out front.

This is what I imagined California would look and feel like. Padking is free and if it is full there is a big public free lot 1 block away. Strolling down the "boardwalk" (it's paved) was fun. Plenty of places to eat or rent skates, bikes, boogie boards, etc.
