“Disappointing!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

We rode a 4 man bike 27 blocks to get to the Pier less than an hour before they closed and they still wanted to charge us full price to get in. It was Mother's Day and mother's got in free, but we were four women, only one mother. They wouldn't even give us a discount rate due to the fact that they were closing soon. Very disappointing!

“Pay just to walk on the pier?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

As a BOI I am frustrated that We would have to pay just to walk out on the pier and check out what changes had been undertaken after the Flagship Hotel was torn down. Am guessing the owners want to make back their investment faster and prevent loitering by whom may be presumed undesirables!

If you want to pay 10 bucks each just to walk in.....it's pretty to look at at night when the lights are on...that's free

“Fun thing to do...once!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Fun place to take the kids. Not happy to spend $10 just to get in and not ride anything. Two rides were down and they don't have that many to begin with. The kids still had a good time. The games are a money pit. It is something fun to do if you have never been. Not sure that I would do it again. But it is a nice addition to the city and it does give the kids something to do besides the beach.
