Since 1964, Jolly Roger Amusement Parks have attracted thrill-seekers, speed racers, first-time riders, and water lovers from around the world. The Ocean City staple is home to five unique experiences spanning its two locations on 30th Street and the Ocean City Fishing Pier.

“Jolly Roger Parks are unique in the sense that there is literally something for everyone, from toddlers to teens and adults. From the Wacky Worm or the Wild Cat to the Kiddie Grand Prix or Cyclone at SpeedWorld,” says Steve Pastusak, Vice President of Jolly Roger Amusement Parks. “The Cyclone at SpeedWorld is also the world’s first cart coaster.”

In addition to the revolutionary tracks at SpeedWorld are over 23 adrenaline-pumping water slides at Jolly Roger’s Splash Mountain Water Park. Pastusak also notes that Splash Mountain was voted the number one water park in Maryland.

Jolly Roger visitors are known to have such a great time experiencing the park’s many adventures that they often stay long past sundown. “Our unlimited night time armband is very popular,” says Dawn Dillon, Director of Sales & Marketing for Jolly Roger. “Since we have two locations, our guests can experience thrill rides at both Jolly Roger 30th Street and Jolly Roger at the Pier.”
