We’re studying the construction of a roller coaster that would span two Piers! Will and Jack Morey invite coaster enthusiast to help! Tell us what you think, and have a great weekend with lots of exclusive events for you!
It looks like a great event and an awesome deal at $39 considering a wristband for 1 day is slightly over $40. Great White ERT at 12:30 - 1:30 a.m. is cool as well. I wish they would have done it in the middle of the week though rather than the weekend.
Sounds like fun, but I am more interested in hearing about the new coaster. Im guessing that it would be between Mariners landing and The Adventure pier, as the seem to be closer than Mariners and Surfside. Could it be a Hyper on the beach? It could be the only worthy Hyper in Jersey.
I must really be out of it, because when did they change the name of the piers?

McDonald's had coupons last year for $6 off a wristband.
I always go on Tuesday for their special on Tuesday's. Last year it was $19 for a wristband (rides only) but it expired at 6 p.m. (in 2005 it was $15). I think it's $19 again this year. They have the same deal on Friday for $30 that includes the waterpark as well.
It's a fun park and I like how during they day lines are minimal (5 Great White rides in 25 minutes last year) but I wish prices were lower. $43 for a wristband and almost $7 for a single coaster ride seems like a lot (and I won't even comment on the $325 season pass). *** Edited 7/7/2007 8:27:21 PM UTC by YoshiFan***
When you look at Morey's prices on wristbands, season passes, etc., and then the attendance figures, you have to figure they NOT priced too high. High? Yeah. Too high? Not even close.
Did I mention I'm a believer in the Gonch business model? (Well, his wife's, to be honest). If Morey's was in the middle of IN/MO/KS, then there's no way they couldn't charge those prices....BTW, love the *tax* on the younger crowd... :)
This event is going to ROCK....wish I could be there... *** Edited 7/8/2007 12:00:32 AM UTC by rollergator***
I'm still curious how they calculate attendance since there is no gate. Is a parent not riding anything but buys a soda from a vending machine on the pier counted for example?
As for the higher prices for those under 25, I understand a pass has more value those under that age but if it's to keep it from being a teenage hangout, I think they should have said under 21. I'm in the under 25 group and don't like having to pay $75 more if I ever were to get a pass. If you go on a normal operating day, you have to go over 8 times for the pass to pay for itself which seems like a lot.
I think $150 - $200 for a season pass would be reasonable. Expensive enough to keep some people away but not ridiculously expensive (especially compared to every other season pass offered in the country except for Disney) *** Edited 7/8/2007 2:42:17 AM UTC by YoshiFan***
