Value & Fun! Keansburg Amusement Park Home of Runaway Rapids Waterpark

Keansburg Amusement Park

Well it was another hot and steamy May day today at the Jersey Shore, a perfect reason to escape the office confines and do something fun!

I met with Katharine Koehler and she gave me the grand tour of Keansburg Amusement Park and Runaway Rapids Waterpark.

I made a post last week on free or inexpensive things to do while on the Jersey Shore and this is the place to be. Their cleverly titled “Free Bees” are family oriented, fun and make for a fantastic day at the shore. Admission to the amusement park every day, beach access which is located behind the park, fireworks July 3, 4, 12, 19, 26 and August 2 and 9 are all free. There are also Buy One Get One Free specials most weekdays and a maximum of 3 skeeball games located at GameRoom and Bev & Wally’s.

Their prices are competitive and can challenge a family of four to park, swim, ride and eat at Keansburg Amusement Park and Runaway Rapids Waterpark for under a $100. Keansburg Amusement park has a classic boardwalk feel to it. You could almost feel the giddy excitement of being a kid again. The park is scenically located on the shore line of the Raritan Bay with dozens of exciting rides for the young and the more experienced.   If games are more your speed, there are fun games to win, three large family arcades and plenty of boardwalk food. Don’t forget to see FastTrax Go-Karts featuring a track for kids and a track for adults so everyone can have some fun!

An extra-large kiddie lagoon area and separate toddler play unit make it easy to keep an eye on the little ones. There’s a crazy lazy river and  two relaxing spa pool if low-key is your speed.  Lounge chairs and umbrellas are available as well as locker and dressing rooms. Plus this area of the park has a full service snack bar and coffee espresso bar.
