A good variety of rides- lots for the little ones but also some more thrilling ones for the ones who wanna be a little more daring. Without doubt a fun place to be.

This is the only place to go. The park is clean and staff is friendly. They have great customer service. I can't say that about the other park. This is the only place my kids want to go. Thank you Playland.

Lots of fun rides and activities for all ages. We went here for the grandkids but we all had a really fun time. It was open on a cloudy/spritzy day which we really appreciated. Staff were good. Prices were appropriate for the Boardwalk. All good!
