  • Food & Beverage
  • Counter Staff
  • Emergency Medical Technicians

I have so many fond memories of Gillian's with my family especially when my boys were small. My son Matt loved the log flume and the bumper cars. My son Josh absolutely loved the wet boat and the wacky worm roller coaster

When they were big enough they couldn't wait to try the Giant Wheel. I can remember sitting with Josh after a ride. I was sure he was going to get sick right there on the boardwalk but, he felt better in a matter of minutes and was off running to the next ride. Ahh, the memories.
