Took the Segway tour on the boardwalk. Nice beach, pools, rides and nice volleyball facility. Great views and very family oriented.

Great park. Make sure to bring ur own food to eat. Staff were great especially lifeguards. Prizes for water slide were reasonable for the Olympic pool size $8 seems a bit much our family didn't budge in. Arcades are great!

Yes and yes. The bathrooms aren't the cleanest but they are large. The beach is very big and right on the Ocean.
