Morey's Piers, Wildwood, New Jersey, USA
I still maintain that the SLC layout is awesome; great pacing and thrill factor. If they had decent trains and rode smoothly, I would ride them more.
Great report and very cool video! You obviously know something about video editing. Your report is very timely for me b/c just a few days ago I thought about going to Morey's Piers, just to have something different to do. How many times can I go to Great Adventure, Hershey and Dorney? You make Morey's look and sound appealing but by my standards, it is expensive - more expensive than the 3 parks I visit most often. The price that came up online for Morey's was $55; I pay nothing to get into GAD (season pass), $39.95 to get into Hershey and $32.99 to get into Dorney. Of course that's b/c I qualify for the senior rate (Hershey would be $61.95 for anyone under the age of 55) but I'm shocked that Morey's doesn't seem to offer a senior rate. (Neither does GAD - most parks do - but the season pass pays for itself.) Was wondering whether it's possible to get there from Philly by public trans; looks as if the only option would be to take a bus to Atlantic City and then switch.
Thanks for complimenting my video. Its only the second video I have ever made. I don't really know anything about video editing now, and I knew even less when I made the video. LOL. I just figured out a week or so ago how to get my videos to upload to YouTube in HD.
About the admission price, I got a huge discount from my awesome hotel, The Adventurer. I can't remember exactly how much though.
Vater has a point. Looking at SLCs they should be great. Problem is, they suck.
That being said, Morey's sucks the least. It's rideable and probably even re-rideable.
What particularly impresses me is that the one video was obviously made from multiple videos. I wouldn't know how to do that. Can I do that on YouTube? I know how to edit a single video on YouTube - had to do that recently when I posted a ride review on a website for which I write - but wouldn't know how to combine multiple videos into one. My Photobucket account will not allow me to edit videos, only photos. I've had to shorten a number of onride videos recorded with POV sunglasses b/c the camcorder didn't stop at the same time as the ride and this is easy to accomplish on YouTube but that's about as far as my expertise extends.
I think YouTube just started offering editing videos from within your browser. I'm not sure though. I edit my videos with iMovie '08 on my iMac. I tinkered with Microsoft Movie Maker many years ago, and it was just as easy. I've stayed away from upgrading iMovie because I keep hearing bad things about the newer versions. If I still enjoy making videos in the near future, I will consider purchasing Final Cut Pro, which is a much more professional app for movie editing.
You can do it though. It's pretty easy once you learn how to use the software. I'm sure there are other movie making software available, but I bet you already have Microsoft Movie Maker on your computer if you have a Windows PC, and if you have a Mac, you already have iMovie, and that's all you really need for basic editing.
