Casino Pier, Seaside Heights, NJ
Little kids: From kiddie coasters to racecars to mini golf, there are ample ways to entertain the youngest visitors.
Older kids: The Air Race, Sky Coaster, Shore Shot, Pirate’s Hideaway and nearly 20 other attractions can easily fill up a few hours before or after the beach.
Insider’s tip: Bring your swimsuits for the adjacent Breakwater Beach water park.
Funland, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Little kids: There are kiddie rides galore at this boardwalk hotspot, including pint-sized fire trucks, boats, motorcycles and a Ferris wheel.
Older kids: Amp up the adrenaline rush on the spinning Gravitron, fast-moving Sea Dragon and the newest attraction, SuperFlip 360.
Insider’s tip: Rides and games are on a pay-as-you-go basis, so you can purchase tickets to use throughout your stay.
Jungle Jim’s, Rehoboth Beach, DE
Little kids: The state’s largest water park is perfect for budding swimmers. They’ll dip in the wave pool, race down slides and float along the lazy river.
Older kids: Engage in a little family-friendly competition on bumper boats. Armed with a provided water gun to splash opponents, see if you can steer clear from the crowd and dodge waterfalls.
Insider’s tip: Arrive after 3pm to take advantage of discounted admission.
Morey’s Piers, Wildwood, NJ
Little kids: Whether your child wants to gently bounce on the Jack in the Box, pedal the Magic Bikes or cruise on the truck convoy, there are a dozen kiddie rides to enjoy.
Older kids: Feeling brave? In addition to several family-oriented attractions, you’ll find four “extreme rides” that combine big air and scary-fast movements.
Insider’s tip: Each of the three piers boasts its own flavor of entertainment: Adventure Pier is chock-full of extreme thrills, and Mariner’s Landing is home to traditional boardwalk staples. Surfside Pier, meanwhile, houses family attractions such as the Great Nor’Easter.
