Mainland Adventure Park is the kind of place childhood memories are made. I can’t wait to spend summer hours with my grandson in that amazing arcade and on the incredible go-karts.

It's a hidden gem in our area that's just opening for the season. Honestly, it features everything children and the young at heart need to burn energy and have fun, and I love that there are options for every age and skill level:

  • The play fort is for ages 4-10.
  • The climbing wall has three climbing routes, but the first level is appropriate for ages 4 and older.
  • Aerial adventure trails and the zip lines are for ages 7 and older.
  • They offer double and single go-karts, with 4 years old as the minimum age to ride as a passenger in a double go-kart.

Daredevils can speed over the go-cart track on a zip line and challenge their friends to make it through more than 50 aerial activities that get progressively harder the higher you go. Meanwhile, parents and friends are free to enjoy a cocktail, apps, and more from the Kitchen & Pub, which features an outdoor beer garden with fire pits. The Arcade features all your favorites, as well as a life-sized Hungry, Hungry Hippos and more recent releases like Asphalt 9.

Mainland Adventure Park is so beautiful, clean, and fun; it really has an upscale feel. It’s right in Manahawkin, so it’s easy to get to for the perfect day out. It’s going to be a great summer at Mainland Adventure Park, so don't wait to make your reservations. You can snag them online at
