  • It's great that Kemah is included in the Houston City Pass. It saved us alot of money getting our ride tickets. This place is so cool and unique. Our friends took us here while on a trip visiting them...  more »
  • We visited Houston just after Christmas and this was a great way to spend the day. We bought the day passes and stayed as long as we stand in the cold. Lots of fun!  more »
  • Walked around the boardwalk. Has a nice view; and a cool ambiance. Nice place to spend an afternoon. Would definitely go back.  more »

  • Great place to hang out in a good day. There is no entry fee, just the fees to get in the rides. Lots of sitting options. Parking is very limited so you can only get it close to it on earlier in the day or you go at the right time. The are bunch of restaurants around the boardwalk, so you've plenty of options for a meal. They do great shows during Christmas, least on Christmas Eve when we visited there.
  • Nice rides... Few simple to some fancy challenging... Enjoy the amazing surroundings with a small walk-around the jogging track. Wonderful sea shore... especially a feast for sunset photography! Kemah boardwalk, a must visit attraction for family!
  • First visit and I had more fun than I expected. Paid parking very close by and since a wristband / ticket is required for the rides, there is no fence or gate between you and the thing to forgot in the car. Rides seemed safe enough and the operators at least physically do the safety inspections and look around. Off peak days the lines were short to non existent, not sure on busy days.
  • Been visiting Kemah since I was a kid and I have always loved it and always will! It is a lot of fun and while the souvenirs, food and picture taking may be a bit pricey, the believe the rides are fairly reasonable! Plus, I mainly go for the atmosphere and the train! I love that it's free just to sightsee, walk along the water and see the boats and seagulls, walk through stores, and listen to live music. It's fun for couples, families, and especially kids!!
  • I love the boardwalk because there is always plenty to do there. It is nice just to walk around and watch the water off the boardwalk. There are plenty of places to eat and to shop. Santa stops by during winter, so that's great for kids! There are photos taken while you walk around with friends and family which you can buy from Kemah. It is always nice to see the boardwalk when possible.
