Gillian’s Wonderland is no Six Flags or Hershey Park. But it is a cute collection of kiddie rides on the Ocean City boardwalk, fun for the whole family. Each ride requires tickets to board. Tickets are purchased in clusters at booths around the grounds. They...More

Not at this pier. Down the boardwalk there is another amusement pier with go carts and lots of restaurants. I think the pier is called Castaway Cove.
