We had kids aged 8 months to about 7 years old with us, and they all had a blast. I thought the price of the rides was a little steep especially when the rides didn't last long (i.e. one ride went around one time and cost numerous tickets). The adults rode some of the rides, too, and we also had... More

Nice time for the kids. They loved the rides. It was crowded but we managed to squeeze in all the rides the kids wanted to ride on.

My kids had a great fun. Ferris wheel was also great. I find it pretty pricey though. We've missed Wednesday with unlimited rides for 3h. But we were on time for all rides - 3 coupons promo on Thursday. Parking is not a problem if you are OK with walking 3-4 blocks from the beach.

My grandkids loved it, and it was really easy for us. The Ferris Wheel gave us nice views of the city and the ocean, and the cages made it perfectly safe for the little ones. They picked other rides and loved them.

In my personal opinion I believe that this place is ok but there's some cons I have. About 90% of the attractions are for children around 2-7 years old. Then after that it kinda starts to get boring. I guess they do have some good rides like the himalaya and the log flume and the rides that'll make you nauseas... More

We have been going too Gillian's once a week in the summer, for 25 years now. It is a great pier full of safe rides. It definitely is geared towards the younger child. The rides are slower, gentler. It helps to buy your tickets at Christmas time or Easter when they have specials. Tickets never expire. Both of my daughter's... More

Great fun for the family. Be sure to buy Gillians wonderland tickets during their online sale around easter. Tickets are half price. Khor Bros custard is the best! Save room for all the yummy boardwalk eats!

We took two trips here with our kids this summer. In both cases, they loved it, but Mom and Dad enjoyed the second visit much better. First visit was on a Saturday night. It was much more crowded, and $50 in tickets only kept the kids occupied for about 30 minutes. For the second visit, we went on a Wednesday... More
