Summer day outing

The place has a great potential but needs huge renovations. The kids enjoyed it but will not be back again!

This park really needs to be inspected. While we were on the Farris wheel we could see wires hanging not attached and when we mentioned it to the kid running it he said "whatever", not to mention you could feel the whole thing sway side to side. There may not be lineups but that still means you only get a... More

We visit Atlantic Playland at least once a summer. This summer it was only once, but not because of any dissatisfaction. We love that you 'pay to play' meaning I can take my 7 year old and a friend and just let them go at it all day long while I watch them and perhaps read a book LOL. It's... More

I took my too grandkids there last week and they had a great time. I bought them each a bracelet for under $25.00 each and they certainly got their value out of it . They are ages 6 and 8 and had to convince them after 4 hours it was time to go . They loved the tilt a whirl... More

We have been to numerous theme parks and such so comparisons are obvious. This park needs an upgrade. The rides are old and rudimentary. There is only one water slide which costs 16 per head and is not that great to begin with. The only saving grace would have been the go carting but unfortunately the track is really bumpy... More

I hadn't been in at least 15 years so I was excited to return with my kids. We had a great time and will return but have a few suggestions. 1. Ticket upgrade for bracelet holders instead of paying full price for the tickets to access things such as the go carts. Maybe even bracelet sharing for parents. We spent... More

There are quite a few basic rides/attractions that can entertain the young ones for hours, but I was disappointing in the cleanliness and maintenance of the park.

You have to take it for what it is. While it's cheesy and a bit over-priced the little ones still enjoy the rides and venues. On the plus side it's never over-crowded and the wait for the rides are minimal. It's okay for killing a day with the kiddies.

This was my first time at the park and I took a 4 year old and a 1 year old. I found the price very high for what you get, but it beat driving the 2 hour, one way trip, to Upper Clements. It cost us $86 for a family of 4. Children, of any age, are not free. My... More
