Nice night out

We love walking up the beach and enjoying a few rides with the kids. Great coaster! Yes it is a glorified carnival, but it is a fun family night out.

My family and I visited (kids aged 4,10,12) and I can assure u we will never return! The few rides that are there( and trust me, there aren't many) look old and unsafe and the whole place is just trashy. The people that worked there were not friendly at all and they look as though they haven't bathed in quite... More

I wasn't expecting top notch carnival experience considering the amount of space available for the carnival. As always there's more rides for older kids than the little ones. It gets annoying after while explaining to my three year old why she cannot get on those rides, and to keep riding the same 4-5 rides over and over again. I think... More

This place is exactly what you would expect from a beach front amusement park. The tickets are overpriced, the equipment is a little rusty, but the rides are great for kids and the salty sea air blowing through is refreshing. We went for the ferris wheel. It was only running at about 1/3 capacity, which made the lines long. And,... More

We took our 6 year old grandson to this place for a "few minutes". First off the noise coming from the very loud sound system was R to X rated certainly not appropriate for family . The old dangerously looking rides were either for younger children or for teens or adults . He was very disappointed and we wished we... More

We just got back from NMB and they were setting this "amusement park" up. It looks like nothing more than a traveling gypsy affair. We told the kids that there was NO WAY we would let them ride anything there. The pictures shown must be old bc nothing looked that good. Spend the time and money and drive to the... More

The sound system and the music was great! The dance floor is sheets of plywood well worn sprinkled with sand and corn starch and quite frankly, didn't dance that bad. Even the cement floor areas to dance were very smooth and danceable. This is where the dance contest scenes for the movie Shag were filmed so it makes this place... More

So ever since 2013, we went to this crappy bum place called an "amusement park". I swear the word "pavilion" shouldn't even be mentioned! This park is so small and boring it's crazy! So i went back in August with my family and my 6 and 12 year old cousins for a late night fun out of our hotel room.... More

One of the best places in the world!!! Open air pavilion playing beach music. Terrific ambiance. My friends and family love to sit in the OD listening to the music, drinking beer and feeling the ocean breeze. Wonderful! !

County fair style rides. At $3-4 per ride, it adds up quickly, but was fun for our 7 year old. They sell funnel cakes and other fair food as well.
