They advertise this as an affordable holiday attraction given todays economy. I don't know who it is affordable for.$12 per person admission x 3 people is $36 add in the $13 picture with Santa that is not included in the "Santa Visit". That brings the running total to $49.00 the skating rink that isn't even ice (some sort of plastic) is $8.00 per person x 3 people $24 added in brings the running total to $73.00. The train is a kiddie train that goes around the skating rink - not the whole park as stated. No marshmallows to be found for toasting and whatever you do AVOID THE FOOD SHOP! The food was not good (Pizza especially) and very overpriced. Daughter had a good time but not for the $100.00+ we ended up spending - never again!

Brenda - Have you been to Coney Island lately? A day there with her two kids cost my niece close to $150! All the amusement parks are pricey. I have read that the Bayville Park prices are moderate. As for the ice skating rink, it is the same manufacturer as one in Port Washington which is quite popular. I agree - food is lousy and overpriced. Biggest rip off is the Shipwreck restaurant.

A little bit pricey for what it was and definitely not for older kids. Plus - The ice rink is not made of ice!!!!

I give them credit for bringing something new to Nassau for the kids. Too bad they don't have enough room to expand and really make it nice, but they do the best with what they have. Hey, if you don't like it, don't go back.

I think the park is over priced for such a small amusement park.It is not worth what your paying. Although it is a fun experience for kids.this so called ice skating rink is not even made of ice it is some sort of pastic

I just went there using a Groupon discount. Social Steals has a discount as well. At that price, I was pleased, but I must say, as mentioned, the skating rink is terrible, completely unuseable. I don't care if there's a popular one somewhere else with the same technology; you couldn't even stand up on it. Maybe it was because the skates weren't sharp? but still, you couldn't skate AT ALL! The skates just slid sideways as if you were in sneakers on ice. In any case, at $30 for a family of four including everything except the rock wall and arcade, I still came away happy. The kids had fun.

Oh, I wanted to add, the miniature golf course looks great. Closed right now, but should be nice in the warmer weather.

not worth the drive or trip. my little ones really did not enjoy themselves and it is rather tough to disappoint them as they are easily amused and happy-go-lucky kids. the adults were most definitely unhappy with what seems to me like false advertising.

Visited the Bayville Winter Wonder Land with my family this evening 12/1/12. It is quite possibly the worst place I've ever seen. Here are some positive points; the people dressed up like Rudolph and snowmen were great! Very interactive with the children. The ice skating rink is a plain joke, my mother-in-law made a better skating rink for my children in her back yard with plastic and water and when it froze was a lot of fun. The light show was good but the genius who wired it must be put in jail. There were extension cords hanging from roof tops that had to be pushed out of the way to get around. Multiple splices, which were covered with electrical tape, not wire nuts and not even in a junction box that a child could walk right up to and touch! I remember seeing one outlet that had 10 extension cords plugged into it with multiple adapters. You see things like that on a poster which says "Never do this due to fire hazards!" I've never been there for Halloween, which it looks like they are famous for and should possibly stick to if they don't have the means to safely setup for different events year round.

Totally NOT worth it!A few of my friends and I brought our 5 and 6 year olds...The kids were sooooooo disappointed when they got there and realized it wasn't really ice to skate on..The light show is a joke..So many lights were out..and the rock climbing was riduculous..It took us 30 min to get someone to come over and open it..The managnemnet staff was completely unfriendly as well..The only pleasurable part was the kids visit with Santa and them enjoying each others company..The advertisers for Bayville Winter Wonderland are brilliant they really had us driving there expecting just that ..What a total disappointment!Save your money!

Merry Christmas to All!

Bayville Winter Wonderland was really fun. I thought it was avery good value. Just $15 for 5 attractions is only $3 each. I do not know how they can afford to charge such small prices. The light show was fun and fun house was really cool. We really enjoyed santa and having ice cream and playing in the arcade.
