Last Sunday as we were about halfway on our drive to Casino Pier Breakwater Beach we saw dark storm clouds rolling in. It was too late to turn back now so we pressed on. We were going to make the best of our family funday despite the impending rainstorms. Breakwater Beach was opening early (at 9:30am) and we wanted to get there as early as possible so that we could experience all that the parks and the boardwalk had to offer.
I think the water park was my favorite part of the entire day, even on a somewhat chilly, cloudy morning. There is truly something for everyone at this park. My youngest enjoyed the perfect storm area which features multiple slides and fun activities for the younger guests.
Next we took a relaxing ride down the Revolutionary Wild River, which was more like a lazy Sunday morning river. The great thing about the clouds was that we basically had this attraction all to ourselves. The water was also warmer in this area which was nice. My daughter and I took plenty of rides down the Two if by Sea water slides which accommodate single or double riders. These were a lot of fun, and it was a great leg workout climbing up for the ride each time!
We ended our time there at the Harbor which features waves that come every 10 minutes. This was a fun area for some swimming and jumping the waves. At this point the storm was here so we go dressed and made our way over to the boardwalk for lunch and the arcade where we spent most of our tokens on the claw machines – does anyone every win these things?
Finally the rides were open at around 1pm when the threat of a major storm has passed. We closed out the day with some delicious soft serve and sadly left as the sun was coming out. We can’t wait to return on a more beautiful day this summer!
Now it’s your turn to visit Casino Pier Breakwater Beach. It’s located in Seaside Park, New Jersey just over the bridge from Toms River and we have a 4-pack of Ride & Slide passes for your family to enjoy!
