More piers, more fun

What makes Morey’s Piers in Wildwood different from other NJ shore boardwalks is that it has three separate piers, each with a unique style and atmosphere. Mariner’s Pier is full of the classic boardwalk rides that children love and adults remember fondly—bumper cars, a carousel, and teacups—guaranteed for hours of fun. For a more kid-friendly spot, Surfside Pier is the place to be. Littles will have a blast at the Balloon Race and the Wacky Whip, which are perfect for pint-sized riders, and braver ones will be thrilled to see AtmosFEAR! a 50 mph ride with a harrowing 140-foot drop, or The Great Nor’Easter coaster complete with 2,170 feet of new track and a thrilling 95-foot drop too. Lastly, you’ll find Adventure Pier with hair-raising attractions like The Great White wooden coaster, the 160-foot rotating Sky Scraper, and everybody’s favorite Grand Prix Raceway go-kart track.

  1. We just got back from Wildwood and was very disappointed in the cost to ride all day was $114 . I believe that is very high for a board walk rides it isnt Disney and too much to do water and ride in oneday howecer we stayed in north beach only a mile away from board walk and the beach was beautiful and very clean . On other note is too be sure to bring your reusable bags they do not have plastic or brown bags anywhere since the law was past .
