The excitement of coming to OOB is the Palace Playland. HOWEVER, it is sooooo expensive. Please plan on spending at least $75 per child to ride SOME of the rides and play a few games (that's just for one visit). I really wish there was...More

Lots of various games for all ages. A great place for the entire family. Right at the beginning of Old Orchard Street near the beach, pier and rides. Easy walk to stores and food places.

We went here because my wife had gone here in the early 60's. Much has changed since then but the amusement park is still there. Family fun!

Clean, attendants kind, well dressed and friendly. Parking an issue and quite pricey. Best deal is to buy a day pass. I am not a fan of the games but kids seem to enjoy them. Great variety of rides for all ages.

The kids had a blast here, lots of different rides for them to go on. Especially cool once the sun was down with all of the lights.

This was a fun place for young and old. Had plenty of "thrill" rides for the older folks but I thought it was also great for the little ones. Lots of fun things for them to do. As expected it can be costly with more...More

It was a fun park to visit, and fortunately, not very crowded. The boys were able to go tides multiple times and had fun, even in the rain! I suggest taking a break and going to get something to eat around the area, and coming...More

While a little costly, everyone had a great time here. There are several rides for adults and children. Also there's an arcade area and games of chance. If you spend all day it's worth it for an unlimited ticket as not to many rides will...More

Many motels have discount packages. Pick up a copy of OOB travel guide at the information office at the Amtrak station.
