I've seen most of it and I don't agree with most of it. The special provides a lot of history, but I don't agree that Atlantic City's boardwalk is currently the best in the US. It doesn't mention Wildwood which I'd consider to be the best amusement park boardwalk.

I've never been to Wildwood but heard about it. Can anyone compare/contrast it to the one in Ocean City, MD?

Never been to OC,MD, but have been to wildwood for the last 26 years... This is by far the best amusement boardwalk in the world...
How can you beat this list of rides, between 3 piers...
3 Outstanding top-notch rollercoasters: Great White(Steel/Wooden), Great Nor'easster(Vekoma SLC), and Sea Serpent (Vekoma Boomerang)
3 Nice wild mouse-style rollercoasters
3 Cool Dark Rides: Daunte's Dungeon, Pirates of Wildwood, & Jersey Junkyard
20 or so Kiddie rides to keep the kids happy which makes the parents happy.
2 Decent sized waterparks
The normal Amusements: Sea Dragon, Gravitron, Music Express, (2) Funhouses, 156 ft ferris wheel, carosel, 3 sets of go carts, Giant Slide... And others...
Also other then the above... More High Intesity rides: you have Atmosphere... New for 05, 140 ft version of Power Tower(CP) Dominator(DP).
The Condor, The Inverter, Mealstrom...
Also the extra fee rides are sweet too... (2) 100 ft sky coasters, The Screamin Swing, 160 ft Skyscraper, & the 320 ft spring shot...
GOD... WILDWOOD IS AMAZING...
A total of 75 rides and 21 water park rides...
But you cannot forget the food stand... MACKS Pizza and the other 15 pizza places, Curlies Fries, Jumbos, TLC polish Water Ice, Laura's fudge... All of the shopping...
It is GREAT.
Check out the website for the rides...
On my way down there this weekend... *** Edited 8/3/2005 6:28:42 PM UTC by Shamrock***

So for anyone that watched this, what exactly did they profile on Myrtle Beach, considering that the place doesn't have a traditional style boardwalk? I mean it has the Pavillion area and some piers that have stuff going on but not a traditional boardwalk.

I don't know what makes a boardwalk "traditional", but there is a walking area made of wood on the beach in front of the pavilion, gay dolphin, etc. I am not sure how far it runs though. *** Edited 8/4/2005 3:03:06 PM UTC by BWizzle***

That's why I was wondering what they profiled specifically so that I could see what they considered "the boardwalk" in MB. When I say "traditional", I mean a wood boardwalk that stretches along a good portion of the beach front where a good majority of shops, restaurants, and amusements are. Such as the ones at Ocean City, MD, Rohoboth Beach, DE, and Wild Wood/Ocean City, NJ.
