No, the properties of Casino Pier including the go-karts, and arcade areas are non-smoking.

Several ATM’s are located inside the Casino Arcade as well as outside the main ticket booths on the ride pier.

Each weather event is different, but in cases of severe weather the rides are closed until it is safe to operate them once again. If weather conditions prevent us at anytime from presenting a safe environment for our guests and team members, we will temporarily suspend operations until management feels it is safe to reopen.

First Aid is located inside Guest Relations on Casino Pier. We also have several managers carrying walkie-talkies on the property at all times. They can have First Aid brought to your location if needed.

It is free to enter the Amusement Park however all riders, including accompanying riders are required to pay a fee per ride.

Shoes and Shirts are required to be worn on rides.  Bikini tops and brief halter tops are not permitted to be worn.

Please visit the Guest Relations Office out in the Amusement Park for a boarding pass prior to riding.  The boarding pass will identify the rides and attractions that you can safely experience.

Only service animals specifically trained to aid a person with a disability are permitted. 

Each ride has the height requirement posted at its entrance.  Our website also lists the heights under each individual ride in the ride section.  When visiting our property guests can receive a Ride List rack card at our sales booths that indicate the height requirements.  At request, riders can also receive a ride height wristband at our Guest Relations office that indicates the height of a rider.  Let’s face it, children don’t like to be measured constantly so take advantage of this to make your experience more stress-free!

Loose articles such as cellphones, hats, keys, etc. may fall from your person and injure other guests on the property.  Loose articles should be left in the storage bins provided, or with a non-rider.  Items lost in ride areas cannot be retrieved until the end of the day.  It is recommended to complete a Lost Items report at the Guest Relations office.


Food and Drink are NOT permitted in the park. Guests are allowed to bring a coffee in a disposable cup, or one plastic bottle of water. No reusable beverage containers (such as Stanley, Rtic, Yeti, etc will be allowed). Food for infants and medical needs, or allergies are exceptions, and must be cleared by a Supervisor or Manager. All bags are subject to search. Food brought to the front gate will be asked to be returned to your vehicle or thrown away. This is a zero-tolerance policy and strictly enforced.

Breakwater Beach is a family-oriented park. Appropriate swimwear must be worn at all times. All swimwear must be clean, non-see-through, with no offensive language, no over-exposure, and must fit properly.  Prohibited clothing includes, but is not limited to: street clothes, khakis, gym shorts, demin, sports bras, thongs, or other undergarments.

No! The pass is available for purchase any day both parks are open. It can be used on multiple days or on one day! (Ex: Waterpark admission one day, and the Ride Wristband on the second day)

Yes, although we cannot offer a quicker access to the towers as there is only one staircase and no back entrances for the slide towers, we do recommend stopping by guest relations or asking the admission windows for a special wristband. The band is small and not conspicuous and will allow staff to know there may be a need to make accommodations. All written and verbal safety warnings and instructions, including height requirements, for each attraction apply to all guests. Prior to participating in an attraction, guests must be able to demonstrate an ability to understand, participate, and follow all attraction requirements. This includes, but is not limited to, demonstrating an ability to maintain the proper riding position, and paying attention to and complying with safety instructions. Park personnel reserve the right to deny entrance to an attraction based on safety considerations.

Yes, the fee is $5 off admission. No parents with children under 11 years old will be allowed to spectate while their children are on the slides…”If your child is in the water, you should be too.” 

We do not have a special location for spectators to stay within, and our policy is to focus on the safety of all of our guests, not to watch if someone is in the attractions who should not be, thus we do not offer a bigger discount for this admission.

The admission of the park is for all guests 2 years old and over.

When a storm approaches our area, the park will typically remain open; however, the attractions will close if there is danger. Rides will reopen when it becomes safe. We understand that this will disrupt your day but we hope to make it as minimal of a time as we can control. Should the park attractions remain closed for longer than 45 minutes, we will be happy to exchange your wristbands (not receipts) from today for a pass for another day. In order to obtain your free passes you will have to bring your wristbands (not receipts) from today to the admissions windows where you entered. Our friendly staff will exchange your wristbands for a return ticket for another day based on the time of day for the delay and the time you entered the park.

* If you choose to stay in the park until the rain passes you will not be given a readmission pass upon exiting.

* If you have chosen to leave and receive a pass, and decide to return later in the day, you must use your pass to re-enter. Once a band is exchanged it is no longer valid.

*In some cases the park will close once most of the guests have left. This depends on timing, length and severity of the storms. We will do everything in our power to reopen, however sometimes it is impossible.

* Please be sure to take all belongings with you in case of a storm, if the park closes you will not be able to reenter to return to your locker.

Pets: Pets are strictly prohibited from any part of the premises. Service animals, not therapy animals, as defined by NJ state law provided below are permitted: 10:5-29 Person with a disability; accompaniment by service or guide dog; use of public facilities; liabilities. While Emotional Support Animals or Comfort Animals are often used as part of a medical treatment plan as therapy animals, they are not considered service animals under the ADA. These support animals provide companionship, relieve loneliness, and sometimes help with depression, anxiety, and certain phobias, but do not have special training to perform tasks that assist people with disabilities. Even though some states have laws defining therapy animals, these animals are not limited to working with people with disabilities and therefore are not covered by federal laws protecting the use of service animals.
