Half-Price Ride Ticket Sales Continue on Boardwalk

Check hours for the sale of discounted ride tickets at Gillian's Wonderland Pier and Playland's Castaway Cove.

It's a rite of spring for Ocean City Boardwalk regulars and it's a great deal: the annual spring half-price sales on Boardwalk ride tickets.

Any family can tell that wallets get light quickly when the kids start racing from ride to ride. The rides at range from one ticket (80 cents, if purchased in bulk) for the carousel to five tickets ($4) for rides including the log flume and giant Ferris wheel. At , the marquee Double Shot thrill ride asks for six tickets (summer ticket prices are not announced yet, but are similar to Gillian's).
