The boardwalk also offers other adrenaline-pumping options along with classics such as a carousel, a ferris wheel and a replica of the 1863 CP Huntington steam train.

Tickets are required for all rides and can be purchased on-site at Kemah.

When you get hungry, choose from a number of restaurants where you can purchase lunch or snacks. One of the boardwalk’s centerpiece restaurants is the Aquarium, where the dining room encircles a 50,000-gallon tank full of colorful fish, sharks and stingrays.
