Seaside Park Beach

Popular beach featuring a myriad of shops, accommodations and restaurants, plus a boardwalk offering rides, fun and games the whole family can enjoy.

Reviewed By Dan G

Fantastic Beach to visit with a family of young children. It's clean and the boardwalk offers plenty of attractions. There is a Ferris wheel, roller coasters, games, arcades, mini golf, and tons of shops. Stop by 3 Brothers from Italy for great food. Just a great place to visit.

Myself and friends went for the coaster event they had going on. Wish they would include unlimited rides on their extreme rides like moreys does, but nonetheless it was still a great time. The new coaster " Hydrus " is short and sweet, packs a punch and a lot of hang time. All the staff were friendly and the whole gang had a blast. The new Ferris wheel looks amazing. Great views and stunning light package at night
Thanks for a fun filled day.
