We took this side trip just for the amusement park upon recommendation of Texas welcome center worker. (Wanted six flags😕but closed down) this was a fun day for the kids, my 15 yr old loved the shaky wooden roller coaster. My 9 yr old loved the other thrill rides too. Would definitely do again if near Houston.

My only reason for scoring this place quite as low as I am is because of my frustration over not being able to enjoy many rides with my daughter after purchasing a wristband because they wanted me to leave my 3k camera on the ground, which I refused to do. I get the idea behind your items needing to be... More

Bring your family to vacation at the Kemah Boardwalk! It is a very old fashion resort area geared towards family fun!

Despite the summer heat, we love coming to this place. Always fun rides, different little shops, and most of the time a different band playing. A very fun but pricey place to spend time.

We drove about 45 minutes to visit the Boardwalk, and were pretty dissapointed. We went to enjoy games and dinner. There were probably about 4 games total and they were for little ones only.There were no rides going the music was bland.The restruants were not very busy. It was not what I expected.

this is fun for kids and adults who are still kids at heart. They offer military discounts on the tickets for the rides and the Aquarium. Free parking but there is no shade and it gets HOT HOT HOT

It really isn't a place to bring a 3 and 2 your old, they have a few rides available for them, but this is definitely for adults, fun, great staff clean location.

What a great place to bring the kids and enjoy a day, now you can't expect to not spend much, but it'll be a great time. From the train to the zip line, to the Beast!! There is plenty to do and a great time for all.

It is a fun place to take your family if you are in the houston area. The boardwalk offers family fun rides and attractions, boat rides, and plenty of restaurants to to sit down and enjoy the view.
