I love this place but there is inconsistencies with the ride operators. Just tried to ride the undertow, a ride I rode on Wednesday wearing same jacket with same bag over my shoulder no issues. Today I get all the way through the line and was made to get off ride. My bag was securely over my shoulder and underneath my zipped up jacket, I also wore it on the giant Dipper which is a lot more jumpy I had no issues with the bag. When I was told the bag needs to go in the locker I asked where are the signs. She pointed out a small sign that had an arrow and lockers in big letters, the rest were in little letters. I'm at the beach and amusement park so to me that means lockers for clothes so I wouldn't particularly continue reading. I Get off the ride and try to leave but the chain was up and I was having a difficult time getting off the attendant just stares at me until I asked her are you going to let me out. The rest of my party continues on the ride and as I am waiting I noticed another operator standing near the entrance where are the seat tester and the entrance to the line are located. If she standing there watching wouldn't that be the opportune time to let people know they need to store in the locker instead of waiting till they get all the way through the line. I have no problem following the rules, it's just frustrating when it's not clearly marked, my items were clearly secured on my body, and The Operators aren't consistent. This is a great ride, I enjoyed it very much so not being able to ride on it was very disappointing.

Lovely beach with tons of ride but my fav thing about this beach is the backwaters from the sea. This provides two great benefits 1. Respite from ice cold ocean water. Backwaters is rather warm and cozy. 2. Safe zone for kids to play in water. You don't need to be holding hands all the time. Water is shallow in backwaters and kids love it. Nice festive like atmosphere with people sun bathing, bbqing, playing. It's a nice fun place to spend your day.

The beach is awesome. The rides are thrilling, the most thrilling is the fire ball, it was spectacular. The food is expensive ,but fantastic. All in all, great place to hangout or vacation .

been going here since i was a kid. love this place! very crowded in the summer. everything is pricey but that kinda goes without saying. there's always something to do here year round. favorite ride is loggers revenge. my 5 year old loved it! good roller coaster for a beginner that likes water. plus you can take some cool pics at the top. but be careful. expect to get soaked

Gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful. Bring a sweater it does get breezy if you're not ready for it. Don't forget a blanket and an umbrella. There's so much to do and see. It's a great place to have fun if you have the cash to spend.

Always a great time! I grew up going to the boardwalk and love it still! So many options- Stroll around and enjoy people watching, the ocean breeze, sand in the toes, arcade fun including laser tag, volleyball, kites, and of course the awesome rides and the wharf. Hungry? Too many choices to mention ! Sunset is beautiful and lights at night are a delight ! Music and movies on the beach! Enjoy!!

Have been here multiple times. My kids enjoy almost all the rides. Have spent 7 hours just for ride in a day. Love the ticketing options they have. One thing which I felt not comfortable is with recharge of tickets should have low limit as much as $5 but which is only $20. You could spend entire day on a summer day at here.

My teenage kids had a blast here! Monday nights are dollar nights for all rides and sometimes you will find discounts are even given from the food vendors. I was amazed at the amount of video games that are spread about. Personally I enjoyed being able to get away from the crowds and hang out on the beach while my kids had some fun. The night time is the best time to go for the whole place is lit up and they even do a little bit of a firework display.
