Tell Morey's to save the Golden Nugget!

Thursday, June 30, 2005 10:01 AM
Morey's Piers wants to know what you think about the Golden Nugget being moved From the old Hunt's Pier site to Mariner's Landing... tell them that you think this classic darkride/coaster combination (the only steel coaster ever constructed by PTC!) needs to be saved. Anyone who had ridden the ride will tell you that it was a fantastic experience!

I think they need to forget about this out of date relic and get a rocket. The public wants record-breaking rockets. If you had any sense at all, you would realize this. ;)

And the good thing about those record breaking Rockets... there is no wear and tear on the launch system, tracks or cars from excessive use... they will last FOREVER!

After my brothers second visit to Moreys.

Id say Moreys should concentrate on saving itself.

I won't visit due to his report and he won't post it because he has nothing nice to say about the park at all.

A park he raved about in 1997

I'm really interested to hear about your bro's visit to the park. I've been going to Morey's Piers every summer since I can remember breathing and I've never had a bad experience. I'm not saying I don't believe you, I'm just curious.

You're right... Morey's should get a Rocket. They are the future of roller coasters and amusement parks in general. But since they probably don't have the coin to spend on one, I'd take a relocated Golden Nugget, one of the best lost darkrides ever.

rollergator's avatar Thanks SO much for catching that Rob....I was JUST talking about this ride the other day, wondering if it would befall the same fate as Wizard's Cavern.

"If you can't afford a rocket, re-install something classic" for Knoebels... ;)

"If you CAN afford a rocket, install something classic anyway--something that works." ;)

rollergator's avatar I sent them a 36-page missive about it....kidding! :)

I did send a relatively short, heartfelt plea to maintain the history of their park. There's not many beachside parks left, and keeping that piece of amusement history operating for the future is not only great nostalgia, it's great business too. Older people like to "show off" the rides they got to ride "before you kids were even born", and GN is only going to get one chance at refurbishment....

If they CANNOT save the Nugget, then get a rocket... ;)

I support the idea of saving the Golden Nugget. Since the ride is steel tracked, you won't be getting any splinters. ;)

// the public crave rockets!

I have been going to moreys forever and have yet to have a bad time. That place makes a lot of money so i dont know why they dont get another coaster. If you use tickets to go on one of their big costers you are paying $6 for one ride. This place is always packed and the water parks are pretty cool. Saving the golden nugget is a great idea but they should think about a B&M in the future.

Scooby will be extremely mad now that BPB cancelled their rocket. Instead they should build a BIG woodie! :-) Than Scooby can get himself a splinter injury and sue the park because the BIG woodie gave him a splinter! LMAO!
It is a FACT that The Voyage is the greatest thing on the planet!!

You won't visit a park because your brother said he had a bad trip? Wow. That is pretty ridiculous. If I avoided things my brother didn't like, I'd be miserable, cause he is a different person than I, and we have different tastes, even if we have a lot in common.

Thankfully, we don't share a brain.

Clint, Lets just say that when your brothers wife ask the park office why they aren't opening the pier with great white when it's advertised to open at 4 and a park manager says listen B^*CH We don't have to do nothing for nobody.

Would you still go? I know her and also know she would never get out of line with them for them to say something like that. Now I don't know if the manager was just having a bad day or what but thats totally uncalled for and IMHO one reason for me not to visit a park 700 miles from me. Not when there's so many QUALITY parks out there. I said Rob enjoyed the park in 97, Theres no doubt in my mind he would have probably found this visit pretty enjoyable if that haddn't happened

But thats ok, This stuff don't happen like me being called a MF for giving a CP addmissions person a hundred dollar bill and not saying a thing rude or out of line to them.

You wanna be treated like crap? Fine, Go. as for me, Im out to enjoy parks not to be taken for granted by them.

Chuck, who has been to CP since a couple times but far less than I would have been if that haddn't happened.

Or not as the case may be - maybe we'll get a proper coaster instead for 2010 ;)

Mamoosh's avatar Come on, Jim...what you're getting next year sounds fun!
Friday, July 1, 2005 11:06 AM
Would have been even more fun if I'd seen it before the page was taken down ;)

But yeah, could be worth getting my toes wet with...

I have very fond memories of riding the Golden Nugget as a kid with my family and relatives. We always stayed in Stone Harbor, and it would get a little bit old after a while. I mean how many times can you go to the beach, ride your bike, and play minature golf? So needless to say, I was always itching to go to Wildwood every year. So, um, yeah-Move It!

Mamoosh's avatar The fact that the page was taken down is a tell-tale sign that the park did NOT want that artwork released ;)
