Did you know that January 31st is National Plan Your Vacation Day? Now we all know Ocean City is the best vacation spot around, however, we’re going to let you in on a little secret...
Jolly Roger is the place to be! From their complete water park to a variety of roller coasters as well as go-kart racing and more, Jolly Roger is the perfect spot to experience all of your vacation fun.
Enjoy rides at Jolly Roger on 30th Street such as the Heart Flip, Wild Cat, The Wave, Happy Swing, Tea Cups (an amusement park classic), Helicopters, Balloon Ride, Spyder, Wacky Worm, Motorcycles, Sea Serpent, Flying Dutchman, and for the little ones, Winkie Whale and the Wiggle Worm! Some of the other popular attractions they offer include the Iron Horse Train, Nascar Whip, Monkey Mayhem, Carousel, Kiddie Pirate Ship and a Youth Adventure Area. Click here to explore a full list of all the different amusements they have to offer you.
Already tested all the rides? (If so, very impressive!) Hop on the Giant Ferris Wheel for a look at Ocean City from above, or watch the free Circus in the park at 5 pm and 9:30 pm daily and be sure to check out the park’s free nightly Pirate Shows, Monday through Thursday 7:30 pm and 8:45 pm.
Then stop at Big Willie’s Cafe to find your favorite concession stand snacks!
Your visit to Jolly Roger isn’t complete until you’ve raced around in the Bumper Cars! If you are with a group of children who aren’t quite big enough for this, head over to the park’s Play Station, a pirate-themed obstacle course with places to dig for treasures.
Take mini golf to another whole level on the Treasure Golf course. You must be on your A-game in order to outsmart the pirates guarding their loot at their hideouts throughout the course while enjoying your rounds of put-put! Their Jungle Golf course throughout a tropical rainforest, waterfalls and scenic mountains is also a must-try.
Splash Mountain, Jolly Roger’s unforgettable water park, has something for all ages. With kiddie pools, a Splash Pad, Rainforest Play Area, Lazy River, Wave Pool and every kind of water slide imaginable, you can’t go wrong.
Make sure to hop on a tube and fly down the Master Blaster, the park’s famous water roller coaster. But most importantly, if you’re over 42” and weigh between 100-300lbs, get in line for the Aqualoop, a 360-degree, semi-transparent, looping water slide with a trap door that sends you plummeting into the water below!
Head to SpeedWorld for drift tracks, raceways, and courses that will make you feel like a professional racer.
But wait, there’s more! You can find Ocean City’s only Ziplines here, too! Fly over 1000 feet of steel cable for breathtaking views of the town. Certified guides will lead you through this exciting adventure, but you must be 12 years old to ride and between 100-250 lbs. Closed-toe shoes required.
Just when you thought you had done it all…
Jolly Roger at the Pier, at the south end of the Boardwalk, has become an iconic part of every tourist’s visit to Ocean City. Here you’ll find a two-level Carousel, thrilling Slingshot ride that sends you and your friend flying through the air on bungee cords, Ferris Wheel and more! Top it all off with a bucket of Thrasher’s French Fries.
There are “Passport to Fun Cards” and an “Unlimited Rides Pass” available for both locations.
