Have fun at the Fun Zone Boat Company
Jun 2021 • Friends
We love the Fun Zone boat company in Newport Beach. We took the tour of all the celebrities houses in the peninsula. The boat was very comfortable and the skipper was very informative. We plan to go back in July when we have out of state guests. Great fun. And the location is awesome. Plenty of places to eat. Easy to park

This is the classic fun zone
Oct 2019
This was one of the great locations on the west coast, but has sadly been trimmed to just a few rides with a boring museum placed where fun bumper cars were driven by generations of kids.

Nice little board walk with rides and games
Feb 2020 • Family
We were traveling with adults and ages 7-15. There was a little something for everyone. Fun shops to explore. Pizza and ice cream shops. The girls enjoyed the arcade but it took lots of $ for them
To
Play for half hour. Dry close to beach.

Had fun at the Fun Zone
Aug 2019
We used to take our children to the Fun Zone many years ago. Now I go with great grandchildren. They love the Ferris Wheel where you can see both the bay and the ocean. There are other games there as well as places to eat.

The fun zone was just that, fun!
Feb 2020
The fun zone had a few things that we went on. The boys enjoyed the Ferris Wheel and you seemed to get a decent amount of time for your $5 (PP) admission. Good views from the top too.

Cash the kid who works there is very rude!
Jul 2019
There is a kid named Cash with curly hair who works there and he has a real attitude problem! The owner needs to fire him and improve customer relations!

Expensive!
Jan 2020 • Family
I expect it to be expensive in this area but it was way more than I thought! Five dollars was gone in 5 minutes. Save your money. Skip this!

Love Newport!
Dec 2019 • Family
Newport is my favorite place in the LA area. It is just so adorable. The Balboa pier and fun zone are apart of what make it. We came for the Newport Boat Parade and enjoyed ourselves.

Great fun for kids

You can also rent a boat and take your own trip around the bay. Definitely a must for anyone with the time.

Family Fun
Jul 2019
Love the Ferris Wheel. One can see the Bay and the Ocean. The Pavilion has been near there for many years. We used to take our 4 children to the fun zone when we rented on the Island.
