Our previous visit we went to the other place for amusement rides but decided to try Gillian's. The ferris wheel is huge and offered great views from the top. Kids had fun on the Music Express. I think a few of the rides require too...More

Took my two year old. They had a "all you can ride" special for three hours, which we took advantage of. Good variety and availability of rides for young children (and older children). Staff was very friendly at every encounter we had. Will come again!

When our kids were toddlers/preschoolers, Gillian's was wonderful because they have a lot of rides in their front area that cater to younger kids. On top of that, their rides have reasonable space in between so it isn't super difficult to navigate with a stroller....More

Nice rides for people of all ages. Priced like a carnival. I wouldn't want to push a stroller through at night. But that is because it is so crowded. A favorite spot for vacationers.

I promised the kids amusement park rides and I delivered. Worked out to about 3 rides each for 2 adults/2 young kids for $50 bucks- not a fabulous value. Went mid week, it's wasn't too crowded-in and out in around an hour and change. My...More

Very clean fun pier. Definitely a good selection of rides for the kids. The tickets are a little pricey. I get it, they have to charge a lot but it gets tough to afford with a family of 3 kids.

The fact the Gillian's still have many of the same rides from when I was a kid is a credit to their maintenance crew. Solid amusement park rides and fun for all ages. Over 40 years later and I can still have fun there.

Most of the rides are fine, if a little expensive. Staff in general are good with kids, there was a great man in charge of the children's bumpers. Rachel in charge of the log was very impolite and not good to deal with. When we...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.
