FUN for all ages, many rides and they have a helicopter ride that takes you over the ocean. Nice boardwalk to the rides, and great pizza to eat.

We recently took our grandsons there, they had 4rides for 2-4year olds. The games were difficult, but the bungee ball with people on it kept their attention. The new observation wheel looks like fun, but expensive for the kids.

I really love this amusement park, after the storm they have rebuilt the Ferris Wheel, and added more attractions very family oriented. Plenty of rides and games of all ages.
