Walked the pier at night and again the next day with our 7 year old. It was a great place to go. We did not engage in “carnival” activities as we were there to enjoy the ocean and sun but a great place for families.

My visit to the Pier this past summer was a major disappointment. It seems to offer less and less in decent options and quality of many of the shops is on the decline.

We were there for a couple hours on a beautiful early fall day and the pier was lively and energetic. There is a plethora of things to do, see, shop and eat. Highly recommend a stop there when you are in the area.

The pier just felt dirty to me. We went to a couple of places on the pier and I wasn’t impressed by either place! Will go back to Old Orchard Beach but I think we’ll skip the pier!

Unless you want to pay for overpriced mediocre food don't bother as there's many other better dining places. Good for getting a toe ring or t shirt but there really is nothing there to see. I found it a waste of time unless you just...More

This pier has been destroyed by storms over and over again since 1898 and yet it still stands, an icon to the tough character of coastal Maine. I enjoyed looking at what looked like some of the old original planking that has been salvaged during...More

Very nice. I went early in the morning and even though everything was closed at that time I still enjoyed the view.

I don't know. Does it have your photo and DOB? If it's been an issue elsewhere I would not "push my luck". Better yet... call them on your cell phone.
