Keansburg Amusement Park continues its 110 year tradition on the Jersey Shore, originally developed in 1904 by William Gehlhaus as a summer destination of bungalows and a boardwalk. Over the years, William Gehlhaus and his investors formed what is known as the New Point Comfort Beach Company which offered steamship service from Manhattan to Keansburg, bringing thousands of vacationers to the Jersey Shore. In 1911, the Keansburg boardwalk added it’s first mechanical ride, a ferris wheel. Today, the park is still owned by the Gehlhaus family and includes over 30 rides, 6 eateries, games, arcades, go karts and a waterpark.
Keansburg Amusements and Runaway Rapids continues its 110 year tradition of offering family fun on the Jersey Shore. Park attractions include rides, games, go karts, fishing pier, and food .
