Looking for fun things to do with the kids during your time in north New Jersey? Our hotel is near the Keansburg Amusement Park, a family-friendly waterfront attraction.
Built on land that was originally purchased in 1904, the Keansburg Amusement Park has a rich history in its place on Ideal Beach. After developing a boardwalk and some minor attractions in the area in 1931, the Mystery Ride opened for business. One of the oldest amusement park rides in the country, this legendary dark coaster was in operation until Hurricane Sandy. After the damage of 2012’s Superstorm, the park was rebuilt and open for another exciting summer season in the summer of 2013.
Today, the Keansburg Amusement Park features 40 kid-friendly rides, like the Tilt-A-Whirl, the Sky Fighter, and the Happy Swing. In addition to the park’s ample rides, the park features a ton of exciting games that will test kids and adults alike! Win prizes at Ring Toss, Bob’s Fishin’ Hole, and the Short Range Hot Shot tables. For even more fun family entertainment, head over to Bev and Wally’s Arcade to enjoy a selection of skeet ball, poker machines, and crane games!
Make sure to pack your bathing suit when visiting north Jersey, because Keansburg’s Runaway Rapids Waterpark is the perfect place to cool off in the summer. Visiting the Blue Bay Inn around Halloween? Get a good spook at the park’s Hollowgraves Haunted Manor.
