I've been to Astroland a few times... and I get so ripped off every time! I never learn. The rides are $2-4 each, but you can get a wristband for about $20, which allows you to go on unlimited rides (excluding bumper cars and the Cyclone). Still, it's hard to get $20 worth of rides out of Astroland. Food and drinks are very expensive. My advice would be to walk a few blocks away from the boardwalk and get good cheaaaap food at some Coney Island restaurant. Skip Astroland and hit the beach -- it's free and just as fun!
