I was with my mom and teenage nieces so they weren't thrilled with the place. I enjoyed seeing all the excited children! They had a dance party and had workers dancing with the kids, also had prince/princesses for photo ops.

My son and I went on the Ferris Wheel, a Yellow Submarine ride, and the monorail. We both really enjoyed the monorail and the Ferris Wheel; the latter gives great views from the top.

My son and his family were visiting and we spent a late afternoon on the boards. Everyone loved the rides..even grandpa. Got there before it got crowded and had no lines. Good selection of rides for younger age group. Grandkids can't wait to go again.

What a great way to get a bird's eye view of OCNJ! Kids loved the ride and so did we. Dusk was a great time because the lights had just come on and we could still see all around us. Gotta ride!

Summers in Ocean City have always included the rides at Gillian's. As a kid I rode many of the same rides that I rode with my kids as they were growing up.

We visited on a rainy day, so only the inside kiddie rides were open, which was perfect for two 4 year olds. Tuesdays are 3 ticket days, so most of the rides were reduced tickets. A great way to spend a couple of hours on...More

Located on the Northern end of the boardwalk. Lots of rides for all ages. Very tall ferris wheel. Moves very slow and has great views of all of Ocean City.

This is your typical NJ Shore amusement on the boardwalk. The great thing about Ocean City NJ is that there is no smoking on the boardwalk, no drinking in OC NJ, and no pets allowed on the boardwalk - so it's very clean and calm....More

Not at this pier. Down the boardwalk there is another amusement pier with go carts and lots of restaurants. I think the pier is called Castaway Cove.
