Balboa Fun Zone

The Balboa Fun Zone is one of Southern California's oldest and last great coastal amusement areas and a popular family-friendly attraction for visitors to Newport Beach. Visitors can enjoy rides on the waterfront Ferris Wheel, play games in the arcade or tour the nautical museum while enjoying their favorite beach treats. This is also a popular place to rent bikes, harbor cruises, or take off for a day trip to nearby Catalina Island on the Catalina Flyer. The Balboa Fun Zone is located on Balboa Peninsula across from Balboa Pier off Balboa Blvd. A public parking lot is available across Balboa Blvd next to the pier. Or the Fun Zone can be reached by the Auto Ferry located on Balboa Island.
