Ocean City is a family oriented town. The pier has rides for little ones "inside" to help avoid sunburns while waiting. The rides not under cover are designed for the older kids. They switch it up every few years and keep some staples (like the ferris wheel) which means it is fun for the kids who come back every year... More

This pier is nice for young children and preteens. Their are a few rides that teens would like. They do have ticket sales that go for half price for the ticket books usually on Easter weekend and near Christmas. Sign up to be on their email lists and they will email you with exciting upcoming events. When the tickets go... More

Everytime the grandkids come down the shore, we have to go to Wonderland. Be sure to buy tickets during Easter sale.

This is a great place to take the kids for some fun, day or night. Be ready for some large crowds during peak season.

Gillian's Wonderland holds many great memories. This was our summer go to when our kids were between 2-12. A few rides for the older kids but this is really aimed at young families. A safe contained environment, a nice carousel and plenty of rides for small children. Great place to host a summer birthday party. Go online around Easter for... More

I had a great time when I was a kid. My daughter also loved the rides. I am now watching my two grandsons having super fun on the rides. I hope I live long enough to see my future great-grandchildren having the same fun we all have enjoyed over the years. THANK YOU GILLIAN'S !!!!

I highly recommend Gillian's for a range of ages from small children to young teens, and even for adults (especially the Log Plume). The rides for the very young are under cover so weather isn't a factor. And if you sign up on their website, you can get ride tickets at half-price at various times during the year - and... More

There are lots of rides and things to do for kids. Some are in a covered area so you can get out of the sun. There are some snacks such as funnel cakes available. A good place for families with kids.

This is a fun place to introduce kids to rides. I like that there are several age levels of rides. And some that adults can ride with young children. I don't trust all of the safety restraints/measures. But was always able to ride myself in those circumstances. If you are an enthusiast of big amusement parks (Six Flagg's etc), this... More

This is a great place to bring kids, nice and clean, tickets can get pricey fast, better to get tix in advance in the winter when they are half off or go on a day where they offer bands.
