Love going there to walk around and play mini putt with friends. The boardwalk is definitely a good place for the kids.

It was cold to go into the water but we did wet our feet and had so much fun, even the boys were brave enough to do giant dipper rollercoaster and a few other rides

Our family had a great afternoon visiting the boardwalk. The amusement park was not busy and well-staffed, so we did not spend much time waiting in line. Very convenient for a quick walk to the beach as well. Great stop on our drive through California. There are meters on the street, so very convenient to park. Roller Coaster was great!

Typical American phenomenon I think. Does not tickle my fancy. Carpark is expensive and everything you eat and do, 2 ppl soon $60-80 out of pocket in less than 2 hours.

We used to travel here a lot in the summer but this was our first trip in a few years and was better than we remembered
