This is a great place to take the kids for some fun, day or night. Be ready for some large crowds during peak season.

Gillian's Wonderland holds many great memories. This was our summer go to when our kids were between 2-12. A few rides for the older kids but this is really aimed at young families. A safe contained environment, a nice carousel and plenty of rides for small children. Great place to host a summer birthday party. Go online around Easter for... More

I had a great time when I was a kid. My daughter also loved the rides. I am now watching my two grandsons having super fun on the rides. I hope I live long enough to see my future great-grandchildren having the same fun we all have enjoyed over the years. THANK YOU GILLIAN'S !!!!

I highly recommend Gillian's for a range of ages from small children to young teens, and even for adults (especially the Log Plume). The rides for the very young are under cover so weather isn't a factor. And if you sign up on their website, you can get ride tickets at half-price at various times during the year - and... More

There are lots of rides and things to do for kids. Some are in a covered area so you can get out of the sun. There are some snacks such as funnel cakes available. A good place for families with kids.

This is a fun place to introduce kids to rides. I like that there are several age levels of rides. And some that adults can ride with young children. I don't trust all of the safety restraints/measures. But was always able to ride myself in those circumstances. If you are an enthusiast of big amusement parks (Six Flagg's etc), this... More

This is a great place to bring kids, nice and clean, tickets can get pricey fast, better to get tix in advance in the winter when they are half off or go on a day where they offer bands.

Although I feel the ticket prices are a little expensive, they are always a class act. The area is always well maintained, staff super friendly and kids have a great time.

We had some tickets left from last year,almost 100, didn't last long at all with 3 kids. 5-6 tix a ride, one time around, and if your kid isn't quite tall enough and needs to be with an adult, you need to pony up the tickets for that too. Stick to the other pier, slightly more realistic ticket prices, and... More

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
