I was looking over the 2007 Golden Ticket pdf file. Yes, many nice pictures, but...I was more than excited to see the ad from Morey's Piers challenging the other parks for the 2008 season.
Kudos to another family owned park who has a staff full of pride! Quite a bold statement!

The problem with Morey's is that they are off the beaten path a bit, which makes it difficult for them to get the exposure from the voting public. Many smaller parks suffer from this.
However, it is pretty easy to combine several of the Jersey Shore parks and Great Adventure/Coney Island into a single trip, and it is well worth it. If you have never been to the "Jersey Shore" you are missing out on some classic americana, and it will not be around forever. As long as demand for prime ocean front real estate continues, classic Jersey Shore boardwalks and amusements will slowly vanish in place of pricy condos and commercial development.
As for the awards, it would be nice to see some new parks get some recognition. *** Edited 9/7/2007 2:02:30 AM UTC by Hanging n' Banging***

I agree Bangin. The Jersey Boardwalks have loads of great rides and attractions, plus the beaches, and of course Atlantic City. Take that Blackpool! Where is your casino?
Its great to see Moreys Piers to the south, and the Storino Group (Jenkinsons, Breakwater Beach, Casino Pier) building without regret. Its tought to see Santa Cruz struggling in terms of height and noise variances.

^But you should have SEEN all those poor birds flying right into SCBB's S&S tower...
Oh, wait, that didn't happen? ;)

That's their problem. Too bad it wasn't some of those resident hippies.

The resident hippies are flying too high to collide with the tower...

I find it hilarious that people still want to have beach front property as of late the ocean is eating that way at a pretty good pace. Maybe it's God's way of telling people that if you live on the beach get ready to be washed away.

What would the residents do if Santa Cruz went away?
