Tips on MOREY'S PIERS

Sunday, September 10, 2000 5:43 PM

Hey, I'm going to MOREY'S PIERS on Friday September 22nd... Anybody have any tips or recommendations about the place? I've heard it's pretty spread out... What's the best plan of attack? How many coasters are there overall?
Plus, is anybody gonna be there that night? I'm renting a car and driving from Manhattan... I'd gladly take a New Yorker along so I wouldn't be riding alone.

I guess nobody has any Morey's info??? Please post if you've been to the fabled shores of Wildwood, NJ.

Was there on August 12th for ACE day. It's not really that spread out. The flyer had 7 coasters listed: Great White, Great Nor'easter, Sea Serpent, Doo Wopper, Rollie's Coaster, Flitzer and RC-48.

It's normally about 3.5 hours from Manhattan, and I don't know what its like on a Friday.

If I remember correctly, we parked near the Big Wheel (Ferris wheel), north of the Convention Center parking. It's relatively easy to find your way around.

Great White is a little rough, some interesting elements, but not overly spectacular.

Nor'easter really goes in and out of other rides and pier amusements, and they made me take my glasses off.

Sea Serpent is a Vekoma boomerang, not my favorite type of coaster.

Doo Wopper is an okay wild mouse.

The two compact coasters are okay, the blue one is rough. (not sure which is which, namewise)

If you can, ride the Sky Ride, it's fun, with a great view.

If you haven't looked, go online to www.moreyspiers.com and check out the calendar and other items.

Sorry I can't go with you to Morey's. See you at Lake Compounce on Saturday, Ed.

Thanks Ed... It's always terrific to get a little guidance when going to a new place.

I had already checked the coaster list and schedule and they are open 6pm-11pm on Friday night. (Because of the time limit & driving distance I was concerned about the size of the place. But I've got all day to get there.)

As for Lake Compounce, thanks again for your help in getting me a pass. BOULDER DASH is my absolute fav of the new breed of woodies. See you there!

Yes Morey's Piers are open fri nite from 6-11 pm. The NJ state firemans convention is in town for the weekend. They are open sat. from 12-12, and sun. 12-6. That is "super sunday", where a discounted ride all day is included. All 89 rides are open, but there is an extra charge for both skycoasters, the helicopter rides, and the go kart tracks on the newly purchased Hunt's Pier. Jumbo's, their new seafood eatery at the Mariners Landing pier is exceptional. They added 11 rides this year, including a KMG 'spin out', dubbed the Maelstrom, and a new Pinfari RC-48 coaster. The Noreaster in awesome, and the Great White runs very fast when the winds on the beach kick up. The ride has been surrounded by water after big storms. The Sea Serpent has a new Vekoma train. And, here comes the miracle, all theme parks should take heed of this, they have 3 dark rides and 2 walk throughs, and all the stunts work. The ride all day is reduced in September, and they also offer tickets as you go.

And I stress 89 rides. Certain other parks should back off their bragging rights. Especially if they do not have the staff to operate them.....

Are they going to hve morey's opne this year for the last weekends?..I've been going to wildwood for 29 years and I must say that the weekends in september have just as much to do of the board walk as on. I'm heading down the 21st to oct 1st. in this time they are having the ever increasing Irish festival and carshow(22-24th) the place looks like the hevens opend and rained down classic,muscle, and modified cars and trucks. They line them up along the board walk during the day(friday and saturday). Saturday night they have a burnout contest and a curz night. the following weekend it's monster trucks on the beach along with a show and shine by the convention center.

The piers are open weekends until Sun oct. 8th. Yes those great burnouts keep you up to the wee hours of the morning. Its a good time to come, since with all the rides, you never have long waits, and the car cruisers and Irish party people really are not 'riders'.
