What should I ride in Seaside Heights?

I'm going to Seaside Heights, NJ for a week. I was wondering which piers and coasters/rides I should check out. Thanks.

There's only two piers, so you shouldn't have a hard time hitting it all within a week's time!

Casino Pier has more coasters, including 3 "major" ones- the Wizard's Cavern dark ride/coaster, the Miler Wild Mouse and the Miler Star Jet. All three are pretty uneventful, although I liked the "helix" at the end of the 'mouse and the uneasy feeling of being perched about 70 feet above the ocean on the Star Jet. All are worth a few rides.

I haven't been on the other pier (Funtown?) in years, but they have a small coaster that looks like a Zyklon with a loop (although I don't think it is a "real" Looping Zyklon). Again, it was pretty uneventful, if my memory serves me.

If you want more coaster thrills, take the 90 minute drive south to Wildwood...

Seaside Heights isn't much to write home about. I'd focus on the beach more than on the coasters.

Well, if there are coasters, you can't exactly ignore them! But they really aren't much, especially compared to what Wildwood has to offer!

We were at Seaside Heights four weeks ago and the Wizard's Cavern at Casino Pier was in pieces almost as though it was being dismantled. Star Jet and Wild Mouse were up and running, but the kiddie coaster Hot Tamales wasn't open, though it should be by now - a ridiculous $4.50 to ride. Funtown Pier just have two coasters Dragon Wagon and Looping Coaster. Take Rob's advice and drive on to Morey's Piers at Wildwood, where you have 3 piers and a ride all day wristband costs $39.

I'd spend acouple hours at Seaside then drive the 35-40minutes to SFGAdv, but thats just me :)

If you ride the skyscraper, make sure to tip the ride-op and you'll get an amazing ride!
