All of the standard fare for a carnival; carousel, tilt a whirl, roller coaster, fun house and many others . You have to buy tickets to ride.....i think the tickets are ~$1.35 each and you need at least two or three to ride each ride....More

My family have been coming to OOB for over 10 years now, and it seems like the prices for the tickets for all the rides have jumped WAY too much. You need a crazy amount of tickets for one ride, you will be broke after...More

I've read some of the one star reviews and have to wonder if these people have ever been to any other carnival or fair in their entire life! Palace Playland has about three months out of a year to turn a profit. It's absolutely absurd...More

We had fun challenging each other to the games. Learned I can't dance but can slam the fooseball home. Won a lot of tickets and turned them in for I don't even remember what? Do bring change cause the bathrooms cost per use.☹️

This place was cute and fun. I would recommend getting wrist bands if you want to go on the rides otherwise it would be very expensive. I did like the fact that there was not an admission cost so it reminded me of a carnival...More

Tons of games including skeeball. Win tickets based on your score, then trade them in for a prize you pick. An amusement park surrounds the Palace. The pier is right across the street. There is Ferris wheel, roller coaster, scrambler, carousel and more. Food stands....More

This place has your normal bells and whistles, kids are dragged in by all the pretty lights. If you like the arcade feel then this is the place for you, it has some of the goodies mixed in with the loud crazy new games.
