“Enough to keep the kids entertained, with a boardwalk atmosphere!”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

The rides at the Casino Pier have not changed in the past decade, but they have the old classics and standby's for the kids. As an extended family tradition, we travel to Seaside Park yearly and always incorporate a few visits to the Heights. Just a mile up the boardwalk, it is a world away. The crowd is eclectic and energetic but we never feel unsafe. If you are planning your trip in advance, know that their is an annual Easter sale, where the ride tickets go on sale for half price over Easter weekend. Check the website for details. Buying our tickets ahead of time for 1/2 price makes the rides much more reasonable. The kids have fun. All in all, we go there based on tradition and the beautiful beaches that are a reasonable drive from our CT home. Once all is said and done it is pricey for what it is, but if you enjoy the Jersey Shoe boardwalk atmosphere, Casino Pier is as good as any other....and you might just have a Snookie sighting, if you are into Jersey Shore!

“Best Water Park in NJ”
Reviewed 10 July 2007

Best Water park in NJ. I just went with my 2 kids, 4 and 7.Tip - get there as soon as it opens 9am. It gets very crowded just before lunch. We stayed for 6 hours and I had to drag the kids home. I will say it was more appropriate for ages 6 and up.. My 4 yr old was too afraid of the huge pirate ship and water activities there, so she was happy with the lazy river.
THere is an awesome giant slide ride like on the boardwalk, but with water. Fantastic. The lazy river is great, you must be in a tube, it gets very crowded, but it moves and is very relaxing. THe 2 hot spas are very small and crowded. The tube slides were great. There are lockers and ample chairs if you get there early. THe food is overpriced, but not bad. If you have kids that like the water, I suggest the all day pass $25, well worth it. There is also the flex pass for $30 for unlimited water park and rides. I will choose that next time we go. Again, toddlers, don't waste your money. 6 and up, fantastic
