The park has definitely improved since 2011 all I can see are improvements they have added something new every year and this year(2013) they added a haunted castle and its awesome, kids were scared but stilled loved it,so if your a family and want a good day out I strongly recommend spending a day here.!

“Not Fun for the Young”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This was our third trip here and the most disappointing. It was ok for our 5 year old, he could do most of the things.

But this was the first time our daughter (2 1/2 year old) wanted to go on rides. But there was really nothing for her. Due to height requirements, there were three rides (Jr. Carousel, Caterpillar Train and the Nostalgic Carousel) she could go on. And the Jr. Carousel broke down while she was on it. It was quite disappointing, only having a choice of two rides, which are a lot like a ride you would pay a dollar for in the mall.

In the past we spent most of our time in the little pool (there is no slide by the way) but it was too cold for that on our visit. So we tried to spend more time on rides, but there is only so many times you can go around carousel.

Spend the extra money and go to Upper Clements Park. They have a lot of things for those under 36" and the whole family. Staff is nicer too.

“Atlantic playland”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The experience at the atlantic playland was horrible. It was very hot and the kids that were 7 years old were not allowed in the pool because they were too big. The kids had no way to cool down if they didn't go on the waterslide. The prices were too high for for what they had to offer. It might be good for toddlers but that is it. The food was horrible our hotdogs were like rubber I don't know how long they were sitting there and the service was poor and it was too expensive for the quality of the food. We did not enjoy our time there at all.

“Great for the kids”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

I was there a bit late in the season so many of the exhibits were not open but I resolved to go back again in the summer so as to be able to experience the whole thing.

“Run down”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Nice if you were to take your kids for something to do, however there is not much going no at this place. It is quite run down, but may be fun for very young children.
