Everything was really enjoyable so it's really hard to pick one out of the three.

First time here, friendly, fast and really worth it. Get there early since parking could be a little hectic.

The boat ride was terrific fun.

Parking and traffic are both a nightmare. Leave early and allow lots of extra time for both!!!!

the people at the boat ride was friendly. But we could not find parking so four of us missed the boat ride and the ferris wheel. The parking in that area is not easily available.

The location! It was adorable and there were so many things you could do.

Nice to be in Balboa than Menifee!

It was kind of boring for me but my friend enjoyed it. The boat ride was nice, I just wasn't amused by the "celebrity tour". This had nothing to do with our "Captains" btw, they were pleasant for the most part.
