Summers in Ocean City have always included the rides at Gillian's. As a kid I rode many of the same rides that I rode with my kids as they were growing up.

We visited on a rainy day, so only the inside kiddie rides were open, which was perfect for two 4 year olds. Tuesdays are 3 ticket days, so most of the rides were reduced tickets. A great way to spend a couple of hours on...More

Located on the Northern end of the boardwalk. Lots of rides for all ages. Very tall ferris wheel. Moves very slow and has great views of all of Ocean City.

This is your typical NJ Shore amusement on the boardwalk. The great thing about Ocean City NJ is that there is no smoking on the boardwalk, no drinking in OC NJ, and no pets allowed on the boardwalk - so it's very clean and calm....More

Every year this place becomes more of a money pit.The price of rides for young children are astronomical and the rides are old for the most part. Go to castaway cove, not friendly,better managed and maintained .

Tickets for rides...$1 each, but you can buy in bulk and save some money. The usual kids rides and some for adolescents/adults as well. Crowded from dinner time...sometimes uncomfortably so, but still a place kids can't resist and parents can't dissuade them from!

This is one of about 2 huge amusement parks on the Boardwalk. It has the usual rides to keep your kids of all ages occupied. Be prepared for a raucous place with stacks, and stacks of kids. This seems to be one of the places...More

Not at this pier. Down the boardwalk there is another amusement pier with go carts and lots of restaurants. I think the pier is called Castaway Cove.
