We walked right to the boardwalk & was able to enjoy the beautiful night on the beach. Lots of music & places to eat.

Spent 2 weeks in Daytona and Joyland was an everyday must! A huge range of fun games which we couldnt get enough of in a great environment with friendly and helpful staff... The chilli dogs, funnel cake and ice cream were a great way to end our daily visit to Joyland Amusement Center! Highly recommend joyland to all!

We always walk to Joyland when we are in Daytona Beach. The grandkids have a blast at only $5 each. I was playing the games myself and enjoying the draft beer. Location is right on the beach close to the pier.

We had a blast with our 8 year old. There were tons of games for 50 cents. They have a bar and food also. Lots of choice in games, recommended if you like arcades.

Wouldn't honor our twice confirmed reservation of a window seat. Waitress told us that the kitchen and bar "were going down in flames" so we should expect slow service. 3 times asking for silverware, we never got them. Daughter ordered cheese sticks as appetizer that never came. Even though we asked 3 times about them. Waited an hour and a... More

The Joyland Amusement center is an arcade on the Boardwalk. It has nothing to do with the rides or the slingshot (other than the slingshot is on the roof - but a completely different business). The atmosphere is great and the food is inexpensive and yummy. The Gyro is the best I have ever had. All the employees were helpful... More

Like most people reviewing I'd say it's true. Old broken rides. Waste of money... but the kid liked it. Arcade near by was also old and dirty but games were fun

Don't go here. It's trashy and dirty and the staff have an attitude. They don't know the meaning of customer service. They will literally try to steal from you. Not good for families or anyone unless you have money to throw away.
