Every year this place becomes more of a money pit.The price of rides for young children are astronomical and the rides are old for the most part. Go to castaway cove, not friendly,better managed and maintained .

Tickets for rides...$1 each, but you can buy in bulk and save some money. The usual kids rides and some for adolescents/adults as well. Crowded from dinner time...sometimes uncomfortably so, but still a place kids can't resist and parents can't dissuade them from!

This is one of about 2 huge amusement parks on the Boardwalk. It has the usual rides to keep your kids of all ages occupied. Be prepared for a raucous place with stacks, and stacks of kids. This seems to be one of the places...More

We had to take the kids. It's right on the boardwalk. The kids had fun but the tickets are very expensive and most rides are 5 tickets each. The Ferris wheel was not working both nights we were there.

Gillians is not the place for good rides. The place is getting outdated. Take your business to Castaway Cove if you want your best bang for your buck!

I love the Ocean City boardwalk in general. Gillian's pier is fun because of the rides and games that it has to keep younger siblings entertained and yourself. Once you get done doing that you can continue to walk down the boardwalk.

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.

Yes, Gillians operates rides in September. Hours may vary. Use the contact page at gillians wed site and ask for hours of operation. Look into purchasing 1/2 price tickets online, or take a ride to the "shore" some... More
