Funland, Rehoboth Beach: Address, Phone Number, Funland Reviews: 4.5/5

About
Funland is a family amusement center located on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. A family owned and operated business since 1962, Funland provides family fun at reasonable prices for those who visit us each summer. The park offers great entertainment for the whole family, featuring 19 rides, 14 midway games, a redemption center, Skeeball, and an arcade. Our season begins Mother's Day Weekend and runs through Labor Day. In the early part of our season (May into June), our closing time varies; we reserve the right to close early due to factors such as weather and lack of crowds! Normally in season, July 4th - Labor Day, we close around 11 PM.

Reasonably Priced Family Fun
Sep 2021
Funland has been a family tradition for generations! My Mom went to Funland. I grew up going to Funland and when I had kids of my own, we took them to Funland. Funland has retained many of its original rides and added some newer ones over the years (probably in an attempt to stay current and appealing). I personally miss some of the ones that have come and gone....the wagon wheeler and the silver cups specifically. My kids play the same carnival style games that I played as a kid: the frog bog and the goblet toss. The grab-it machines are a family favorite for sure. We have won countless stuffed animals out of those machines over the years. This year was no different. I love that most carnival games are only a dollar or two to play. There is a small arcade and skee ball area, but that doesn't really interest us much.

Last year was the only year we/I did NOT visit Funland. This was mainly due to COVID and their timed ticketing schedule. I did NOT agree with purchasing $25 timed tickets for EACH child and EACH adult who was just accompanying their child(ren) into the facility. It would have cost us $100 for a family for 4 for just a few hours of play. I get that they were trying to maintain safety and fun, but that was a far cry from the cost of ticketing from prior years. They started Summer 2021 with the same system as 2020 & we were sad that it looked like another summer would come and go without a visit to Funland.

We visited in May 2021 & found that they were still operating under the timed ticketing. However, without tickets we were still able to play the games and grab-it machines. Staff were just limiting the amount of guests allowed to enter at one time. Masks were worn and hand sanitizer was available.

As summer progressed, we were EXCITED to see that Funland was returning to their old ticketing system on July 8th 2021. For the remainder of the 2021 summer, admission into Funland was FREE once again. You only had to pay for the tickets (OR timed wrist band) to ride the rides. Tickets were a little more expensive this year (60 cents each), but still reasonably priced. Most kiddie rides are 1-3 tickets. The BIG kid rides are 5-6 tickets. So, still reasonable. IF you wanted to ride between 1 pm & 4pm, you could purchase a $20 wristband and ride unlimited during those hours. We just opted to do the tickets as we have always done. Tickets NEVER expire, so we bought a large book of 100 and used them throughout the summer. Kids rode the carousel, sky fighters, swings, fire trucks, cars, the Himalaya cars, tea cups, Sea Dragon and the classic Haunted Mansion this summer. As an adult, I rode the carousel, Sea Dragon and the Haunted Mansion with the kids. Kids enjoyed ALL of them. However, the Sea Dragon felt a little wobbly/unsafe when it was braking the last time we rode it. I told the kids they were NOT getting back on it. After that visit, we noticed that it remained closed the rest of the summer. Coincidence? We also happened to visit on closing night 9/12/21 at Funland this summer as well. That night there was an incident with the Super Flip that appeared to be a malfunction. I will say staff acted quickly and professionally that night. The area was closed off & surrounding rides were closed out of precaution.

Overall, kids enjoyed the rides and games at Funland this summer. Prices are reasonable. Rides have always seemed SAFE. However, there was one incident this summer with the Super Flip. I would recommend if you are looking for a family friendly atmosphere for little kids. It is good for kids under 10 years of age, but especially great for toddlers. There isn't much for the big kids/teens.

Great time at Funland
Aug 2021
Have been coming here since I was little and am now in my 70’s. Next I brought my kids & now I come with my grandchildren. It’s a family friendly establishment geared to children. The games can be played and won by kids without braking the bank. While the rides are mostly geared to little children there are fun things for teens (and older) to do. The staff is always courteous and friendly.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and a good place to get out of the sun a bit and take in all the tourists and families having fun. The horse racing game was fun to play!

Inexcusable behavior
Aug 2021 • Family
Took my family to Rehoboth Beach and did the boardwalk. We were excited to go to Funland. We played games and my daughters rode on some of the rides. We then played the skeeball horse race game. We played about 3 games. I won a stuffed animal for both of my daughters. There were 6 people playing each time. I paid for 4 of the 6. After playing, we went to another portion of the facility only for some employee to confront me and tell me what I did wrong and I better “get out of here”. I asked him what he was talking about. He said I used two balls in the game. I said, ok, and? He said you can only use one ball. I said ok and that I had no idea. I never hid that I was using 2 balls and had no idea no one else did. The guy running the game never said anything. So this guy literally gets in my face in front of my daughters who start to cry, and says “my family owns this place”. I even offered to give the stuffed animals back and $20. Absolutely ridiculous for someone to act like that to someone that spent so much money there trying to provide a fun day for his kids. Never again.

The Haunted Mansion is a MUST
Aug 2021 • Friends
Every time I visit Rehoboth, I have to ride the Haunted Mansion. It is one of my favorite dark rides and it is well taken care of. I always appreciate that they change up the scenes after a couple of years. It keeps things fresh and I know that the ride is getting the attention it needs.

Funland is definitely an old school arcade with some carnival type rides. The Haunted Mansion hasn’t changed but is a classic. The “claw” arcade games are set to shake your possible prize off of the grip of the claw. Unfortunate, because it was fun for kids to win at these games. Overall, is a fun time for younger kids or those feeling nostalgic.😎

Disappointed with SkiBall changes
Jul 2021
This review is about one Funland game: Skiball. Since 40+ years, we have enjoyed Funland with children and grandchildren. And after the terrible impact of Covid on Funland, we are gratified with the return to the normal schedule and use of green tickets to pay for rides. But SKIBALL went from 25 cents to 50 cents this year AND to win a prize, one must score >250 points THREE TIMES! instead of one. There is no small-size prize as there has been for untold number of years. Kudos for buying the prize from a US-Company-- Ideal Toys DIrect. Our family tradition of SkiBall is now at an end. Bring back the cute small prizes and get the price back to a quarter!
