More piers, more fun

What makes Morey’s Piers in Wildwood different from other NJ shore boardwalks is its 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. Lastly, Adventure Pier has 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.

Splish, splash at Morey’s Piers water parks

When you need to cool off, Raging Waters Water Park offers high-speed waterslides, a Lazy River Adventure, Shipwreck Shoals for little pirates, activity pools, rope swings, and tons of aquatic thrills. You can rent a private cabana to rest between the fun (and put littles down for a nap). Nearby, the Ocean Oasis Water Park and Beach Club has the Cliff Dive Slide, Endless River, Riptide Rapids, and Shotgun Falls, giving you thrills of wet and wild fun steps away from the beach and waves.

Take a snack break

Let’s face it—your kids come for the rides, but you come for the food. From Curley’s Fries with options of Old Bay Seasoning, sea salt, or Cuban spice on your fries or Joe’s Fish Co. with delish fresh-from-the-sea shrimp, cheesesteaks, and signature cocktails, they’ve got something for every palate in this seaside town. Find a handheld sandwich at Stubborn Brothers Beach Bar & Grille or sit down for beef brisket or shrimp tacos at Pig Dog: Beach, Bar, and BQ to rest your feet before heading out for more adventures on the piers. And, of course, the sweets will satisfy any kid or adult, like a plate of powdery funnel cakes, soft-serve Kohr’s on a cone, or a container of pink spun sugar cotton candy to enjoy while walking the boards.
