The owner has crammed as many rides as possible in a small area. Iron Shark is a wonderfully intense compact coaster. Galaxy Wheel and Texas Star Flyer offer beautiful views of the area high above the Gulf of Mexico.
It's hard to completely knock the park for not having lots of rides for families (with young kids)to ride together when there are not a lot of rides overall.
You can avoid the crowds by visiting during the day, but be sure to stay hydrated. It will be much more comfortable when the sun goes down and even though it is more crowded the ride operators are efficient and work to mazimize capacity.
Food is standard fare, and the park serves beer and Margaritas.

My favorite rides here are the Iron Shark and the Rock 'n Roll themed Super Himalaya. Unfortunately when I went the Texas Star Flyer was not open yet. Has a neat little flume ride (Pirate's Plunge) that is worth a go as well especially on hot days. Park was very clean, and park staff was very helpful and courteous. Location is convenient to other area attractions in Galveston.
