This is a great place to bring kids, nice and clean, tickets can get pricey fast, better to get tix in advance in the winter when they are half off or go on a day where they offer bands.

Although I feel the ticket prices are a little expensive, they are always a class act. The area is always well maintained, staff super friendly and kids have a great time.

We had some tickets left from last year,almost 100, didn't last long at all with 3 kids. 5-6 tix a ride, one time around, and if your kid isn't quite tall enough and needs to be with an adult, you need to pony up the tickets for that too. Stick to the other pier, slightly more realistic ticket prices, and... More

We had kids aged 8 months to about 7 years old with us, and they all had a blast. I thought the price of the rides was a little steep especially when the rides didn't last long (i.e. one ride went around one time and cost numerous tickets). The adults rode some of the rides, too, and we also had... More

Nice time for the kids. They loved the rides. It was crowded but we managed to squeeze in all the rides the kids wanted to ride on.

My kids had a great fun. Ferris wheel was also great. I find it pretty pricey though. We've missed Wednesday with unlimited rides for 3h. But we were on time for all rides - 3 coupons promo on Thursday. Parking is not a problem if you are OK with walking 3-4 blocks from the beach.

My grandkids loved it, and it was really easy for us. The Ferris Wheel gave us nice views of the city and the ocean, and the cages made it perfectly safe for the little ones. They picked other rides and loved them.

In my personal opinion I believe that this place is ok but there's some cons I have. About 90% of the attractions are for children around 2-7 years old. Then after that it kinda starts to get boring. I guess they do have some good rides like the himalaya and the log flume and the rides that'll make you nauseas... More
