Owner description: Misquamicut beach with a section that is open to the public.
Reviewed 10 June 2018

My wife and I stopped here on a driving tour of American amusement parks. Atlantic Beach is a small seaside amusement park for children and has a small Dragon roller coaster, designed primarily for children, but bigger kids can ride too. The owners, Amy and Charles, told me that it was the second oldest family run park in the USA and has been run by the same family since 1921. They treated us as special guests (we are from UK and I suspect they don't get many British visitors) and we enjoyed some huge ice creams and a ride on their wonderful carousel, a 1915 Herschell Spillman machine with Illions horses. It was a pleasure to visit this park and spend time with Amy and Charles. Apart from the beach and rides there is a lively bar (Windjammer Surf Bar) which features live music during the summer. Well worth a visit if in the area, just to ride Rhode Island's only roller coaster.

So I got here at 8 and one part of the parking lot was blocked off another wasn’t, so we parked and left our parking gift card in the window. I was very surprised that a beach in June on Saturday didn’t have parking till 9! The beach was pretty empty and the rides were few, closed, and old. The food at the snack shack was fair prices and good.

This area has a limited amount of rides and amusements. The flying horses always fun. A small size dragon roller coaster, Bumper cars and boats with water guns, race cars are some of the rides.

Fun for the kids. Some older equip but they get the job done. Walkable from the beach which makes it easy to get to from our hotel.

Something to do but not very exciting. Old equipment. Never seems to be running much. Lacking something.
