Later this year, The Golden Nugget, one of Wildwood, N.J.'s only remaining mid-twentieth-century amusement park rides, will be moved from its current boardwalk location on Hunt's Pier to Mariner's Landing, another carnival site across the beach. Once moved, it will be restored in the new location.

This is excellent, I have always wanted to ride this ride and sadly never got a chance before is closed and began collecting dust. Im glad the Morey's are into preservation and Im anxious to see this running again.

I am very happy to see that this ride is getting restored, and brought back for people to enjoy once again. It is a classic!
I was worried that(the rumors were true) Morey's would just let it sit, and rot. It's part of the great memories from the past of a once great Wildwood ride pier(Hunts.) A ride not to be overlooked by enthusiests. ;)

I was watching Dogtown and Z-Boys again the other night and noticed what looked like this ride's twin at Pacific Ocean park. Did they make a lot of these?
