Owner description: Casino Pier welcomes children, families, thrill-seekers, and boardwalk pleasure admirers. Stroll through the variety of rides our amusement park offers situated on a classic Jersey Shore pier, extending into the heart of the Atlantic Ocean. Whether you are looking to take your family to experience the rides for the first time or you are a returning visitor, with plenty of rides, cool ocean breezes, and a spectacular view, the Casino Pier amusement park has something for everyone! Breakwater Beach is a state-of-the-art water park with one of the largest interactive play area on the North Atlantic Coast. The renovation of “Jenkinson’s Breakwater Beach Waterpark at Casino Pier” (Formally Water Works) offers our customers a fun and exciting family attraction. The Casino Arcade is jam packed with all of the latest video & redemption games of chance, along with all of the classic slot machines, skee ball and pin ball games.

“My son asks for tickets for his birthday!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

You can buy tickets here before the season begins at a discount. So this year, my son asked his aunt to by him discounted tickets for his 13th birthday so that he can bring his friends along.

As long as your kids are tall enough to ride most of the rides, its a pleasant day. There's a play area for little ones, but I found the water there very cold and the playtime tedious when you're stuck there with little ones. It's also very easy to lose your youngster in the tubes and stairs of the kiddy complex.

It's best when everyone can ride the rides and even better when then can ride the rides on their own.

My best reason for recommending the area is the number of lifeguards and floatation device. As long as your child knows their limits and travels with a buddy, I feel very certain that the lifeguards can keep them safe.

Thank you for the review! Yes tickets at Easter weekend are 50% off!! We do make sure our lifeguards are plentiful and well trained to ensure your safety, but that you for being responsible and being in the water when your children are as well. Our motto at the park is "If your child is in the water, you should be too" so thanks for helping us out.

“Awesome time for the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Not too many rides and it did not help that two of the big rides were not yet open. Went memorial day weekend.

Glad you enjoyed yourself. Sorry about the rides not being opened - but we were awaiting approval from the state, so it was out of our hands. We tried. Hope to see you again!

Fun and lots of rides for the kids that adults can also enjoy. Wasn't crazy about the type of people that frequent Seaside Heights.

Thanks for your review, and thanks for recommending us. The Holiday weekends certainly are the most crowded.....but the good news is that there are 12 other summer weekends that are less crowded! LOL.....rides are open from Palm Sunday weekend thru Columbus Day weekend so you can avoid those crazy weekends if you choose. Arcade is open all year long on Weekends and some Fridays and Mondays as well.
