Damaged Arcade at Playland’s Castaway Cove in Ocean City, NJ Set to Be Demolished
Spring 2021 is right around the corner, and so is the official opening day of Playland's Castaway Cove on the world-famous boardwalk in Ocean City.
Playland's Castaway Cove is set to officially open its rides for the 2021 season over the weekend of March 27th-March 28th.
Before their big reopening, renovations must take place due to the devastating fire that took place at the end of January 2021. The accidental 4-alarm fire at the iconic amusement park caused major damage to the building, including their signature pirate ship.
I have so many fond memories of my boys as youngsters riding rides at Playland's Castaway Cove. My son Matt's favorite was their miniature golf, which by the way, is now open on the weekend weather permitting from 11 AM to 4 PM.
Meanwhile my son Josh absolutely loved the go-karts and the super slide. I can remember sitting with him after a ride on the scream machine. 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.
You can access Playland by using a side entrance in the middle of 10th and 11th Street. The owners hope to have a deck for entry from the boardwalk built by the summer.
