Playland's Castaway Cove


Welcome to Ocean City, New Jersey

We're here because of this place

Welcome to Playland's Castaway Cove and park 7 of the Eastcoaster 2023 Road Trip

This place is packed with rides

Air Race - we think that every park needs one of these

Pirates Gold Rush - OMG this Miler kiddie coaster was more extreme than we were expecting

Swings - I really need to ask her how many different swing rides she has been on

Tidal Wave - this ride was insane.  I honestly had no idea what was going on the whole ride

The 90 foot tall ferris wheel

Moby Dick and Alien Abduction

Extreme Cyclone

Double Shot - just like its name it shoots up and back down

High Seas is their log flume

Tilt-A-Whirl and Musik Express

Buccaneer - it seriously felt like it was going to hit the ferris wheel

Lots of kiddie rides

Squadron 33 - it was like they took the TMNT glider ride at MOA and put it on an Endeavor

Besides the kiddie coaster, there are 3 adult coasters.  The smallest is Whirlwind which is a powered spinning coaster

The next is a Miler coaster called Wild Waves

This one was a big surprise and we really enjoyed it and the fact that it enveloped the final coaster

Gale Force is a triple launched coaster that goes up to 64mph

It features beyond vertical drops and takes passengers up 125 feet in the air

The best part is that they send you around the entire circuit twice.  This thing is intense

This whole park was a lot of fun and we thank our readers for suggesting a visit
