Great beginning, annoying ending

We purchased an all day pass to ride all you wanted for $24 per person. Not bad considering the wait was no more than 5 minutes per ride. The last thing we did was the train. The... read more

I eat and play here about 3 times a week sometimes more sometimes less. My children and grandchildren love it too. We have been coming here since the day they opened. Located on Kemah, TX' waterfront with a view to die for as far as you can see out into Galveston Bay. Family friendly yes indeed.

For seven years I lived in League City close by to the Boardwalk. We would visit occasionally but it eventually morphed into what it is now. Expensive! The insistent photographers are annoying beyond belief. And as it turns out, are $20 for the print if you are to buy one. Back in the day, parking was free. Not anymore. $8... More

very touristy! get ready to spend some money on lots of stuff you don't need, lol. i don't recommend spending the money to ride the zip line ride - it was definitely NOT WORTH THE $8/pp to ride it!!! what a waste of money!!!! the shops are nice to go shopping in, but most of the stuff is overpriced....

I have been going to Kemah since I was kid but I have noticed that management does not take care of the park nor their visitors as a priority. My last two visits there have been horrible. In the summer I went to park expecting to ride on some of the attractions however the two main attractions were closed the... More

After hearing so much about the Kemah Boardwalk, I was disappointed to see the state of the buildings surrounding this attraction. There were a number of closed and boarded buildings which used to house unique boutiques (I am told by those who live there). For the ladies, these shops were a #1 stop. Not so any more. There are still... More

We purchased a city pass so we went to the boardwalk. Disappointing that when school closed they simply close up. We struggled to find things open, many rides closed for repairs. Bathrooms pretty dirty. Even the food stands and shops closed up until late in afternoon 😤 over priced for what you get in return. Most the overlook of the... More

Spending time with my baby brother and his wife who came down from Austin for a short break. Took the boat trip around the Kemah shore looking at the beautiful homes nestled along the water edge.

Great restaurants plus fun rides for kids.. You can also watch the yachts sailing in and out of the bay. A nice day out and close to Houston.

This is a small fairground right on the boardwalk. There is a little train that runs through it, which is fun for the smaller kids. There is a number of rides that you can pay for separately or you can buy a day pass. There are number of restaurants and bars as well as a hotel. Nice place to spend... More
