Today we visited IPlay America, an indoor theme park in Freehold, NJ.
It’s definitely misleading from the outside as it sits in a strip mall and looks like any other storefront. Inside, it’s huge!
Inside it’s made to mimic an outdoor boardwalk with arcades, stands, and rides. It even has a boardwalk style floor.
The rides there aren’t for older kids, but my kids ages 5 and 9 had a good time and went on just about all of them although my 5 year old needed an adult to ride most of the rides with him so I had a ride wristband too. We had the iRide plus bands, which include the larger rides like go karts and coaster.
Some of the rides they enjoyed;
The skywalk was extra credits and not included with the ride passes. It’s 10 credits or $5 for kids under 42″ and they do the lower section. 20 credits or $10 for kids taller than 42″ and they go on the really high area. They get strapped in and follow the path with the bar for safety.
I wouldn’t recommend this for any child who may be scared of heights. My son got scared after the first beam and came right back down and they wouldn’t credit us back!
The bottom section is cute for very young kids, but there isn’t much to it.
The arcades are fun but unfortunately they do not let you win enough in my opinion. The grab claw games are almost pointless as they do not pick up the items at all.
The game selection is great and tons of things my kids enjoy. They won a little over 1,000 tickets and I like that they are loaded directly onto your point card. There isn’t much to choose from for prizes though, so we got a bunch of candy.
Overall, it’s a nice day out if you want to get out of the house and have that boardwalk feel when it’s not so nice weather out.
One of the best parts about iplay is yhe event area. There are many decent priced shows for all ages including concerts and dinners. I highly recommend visiting the event area if you have a chance!
Here are some upcoming shows;
