Jolly Roger Amusement Park
Maryland's biggest amusement park feautring a variety of race tracks, Splash Mountain Water Park with waterslides, pools and a lazy river. The park also has many games and two themed miniature golf courses.
I agree that the owner is rude and his response to mild complaints was exactly: "This is my place and I will do what I please." There are relatively few rides for any age category - smaller kids, older kids, or adults. Worse, for very small children, they required the parent buy tickets or plans to supervise the children. This might not have been so bad if the ride attendants had ensured small kids were secured; twice my kids were not in the rides properly when the operator was about to start the rides. On several occasions, the operators were on cell phones, and ignored or laughed off questions from parents or kids. Finally several rides were broken and not in operation; even worse one ride was obviously not working correctly and repeatedly stalling,yet it continued to run with the operator occasionally hand-pushing stalled cars. Overally, a waste of a lot of money, and very bad attiutdes from the owners/employees to add insult to the experience.
They weren't admitting people unless you paid cash, because their credit card network was down. Why they couldn't use the old slider credit system is beyond me; it is still legal and functional. When I got to the register, the cashier just rolled her eyes when I mentioned that everyone could gain entry that way. Then a guy (who apparently owns the place) came over and gave me attitude and said his 'technicians' were working on it. Their work-around? Have parties enter with the exception of the person paying, who had to wait in the lobby while the cashiers held the cards. The worst part is that the honcho was very rude, arrogant, and conceited enough to say that it was his place & he'd do as he pleased. No wonder the employees are rude, too.
We took our 5, 4, and 2 year old here with the 7pm+ wristbands for the amusement park and it was well worth the price. It was a Thursday night with no lines. Not sure why everyone else went or what other experiences they've had, but two comments to be made stand out: 1) Just like everywhere else in Ocean City, MD, there's lots of foreign students working here. It's part of the scene. Everyone was friendly and helpful with the kids. Yes, there's some language issues, but half-English and half-smiles works fine, and that's not really any different anywhere else in OC. 2) Compared to the traveling carnivals throughout the USA, this was bigger and better. Plenty of rides, none broken down, no problems except a bit of crying from the ones that were too short to go on certain rides (same as everywhere else.) Of course the carnival games are a rigged rip-off, but if you haven't figured that out by the time you're old enough to be taking your own kids to a park, shame on you. Also, one hint: they have a new obstacle course/rip line circuit set up but you need to be wearing solid footwear to go on it -- lots of people wasted lots of time in line before getting to that part of the release form. (And the guy running this "ride" spoke very well and was very clear with his instructions. He was strict on the safety and also very encouraging with getting the kids to push themselves a bit.) You should be putting good sneakers on before going to a place like this anyways, but this is another reason. Nobody was smoking like mentioned in other reviews and certainly nobody was talking on a phone while checking safety belts or other such things. It was a Jolly good time and we would not hesitate to go back.
games are definitely rigged to take ur money! guaranteed! my son and husband got on the Sling Shot, bought the video and a t-shirt from a Not-So-Friendly employee at the video booth and when we got home the disc was BLANK!!! that was a quick 10.00 they got huh? wont ever go back!
Overpriced Very Dirty Rides. Some Broken Down Maybe That Was a Good Thing Safety Wise as they are clunkers for sure.. Management should be fired. Non caring staff that could not care any less. Smoking while putting kids on rides, part of the pirate theme?? Rigged Games even for the youngest children, they should be ashamed of their business practices.This Place is ALL about the money and NOTHING about a friendly happy family experience. Look the other way. Stay AWAY You have been warned by many unhappy parents and children alike.
My kids were so excited to visit Splash Mountain when they saw all the cool water slides from outside. Being a petite family, my kids are both grade-schoolers under 42 inches. We were told there were still rides for the under 42 crowd...bullshit. There are two kiddie pools with 2 feet of water in them where they can wade with toddlers and a "lazy river" where they can sit in a tube and float in another 2 feet of water. It took us an hour to personally walk to every ride and be rejected which includes time tapping lackluster employees on the shoulder to get their attention long enough to measure the kids. The manager told me that the kids could climb on some pirate thing in the park, I said "No they can't, they tried and were rejected from every slide on it..." To which he replied "Well yeah, they can't go down the slides." Uh, yeah, thats my point. We were then told we could not receive a refund because we were there for an hour; how convenient. I told the manager to walk to every single ride and time himself. He then agreed to refund the money to a Jolly Rogers card as points which we are headed to use now in an attempt to salvage my disappointed childrens' day. For the record, even if your kids meet the 42 inch requirement, there are additional height requirements once inside PER RIDE. Safe only to wait until children are at least 4 feet tall.
I can take it or leave it. I really wish they would hire someone to work there that isn't Russian. (or at least someone who can clearly speak and understand English) I have been taking my kids here for years and they have enjoyed it. It seems to be a bit pricey though.
This place is great for kids and adults alike. They have the great old stand by carnival type rides including a great roller coaster, plus something I've loved since I was a kid... Speedworld! Play a round of Jungle Golf (can be quite challenging), ride the rides, or head to Splash Mountain for a water park experience second to none.
This place needs a face lift by giving there employees some Prozac or send them back to Russia, They are out right rude and not happy about there job. I can go on how crappy this place is along with Splash Mountain for hours, Just stay away from this nightmare trust me !!! .
My family went to the go karts a few days ago (5 of us) & paid full price, a total of $180. We were not pleased at all. There are height restrictions on all the karts, so my son could only ride one by himself. The signs are marked with arrows where you think your children must meet for height, but they don't go by the arrows, they use another stick in front of the arrow sign. We def did not get our money's worth! On a positive note, my husband loved the Grand Prix cars, but you had to have your driver's license with you to ride, so that left me out as i didn't take my license with me. I would not recommend the go karts unless your children are teenagers.
