Kelley Ferro gets lost and gets wild at Morey’s Piers in Wildwood, New Jersey. Morey’s Piers just opened for the 2015 season last weekend, and whether you’re looking for waterparks, roller coasters, local art, or just some fried oreos, these videos will show you just how much fun you can have on one of the Jersey Shore’s most famous carnival boardwalks.
Wildwood is an iconic destination for young and old, families and friends—and there’s no shortage of fun, especially at their two waterparks: Ocean Oasis & Raging Waters.
Voted one of the US’s best boardwalks for food by the Daily Meal, the food at Morey’s Piers is anything but average. Sure you can find your fried oreos, famous cheesesteaks, lemon shakeups and giant pizzas, but the options continue from beach bars with live music to tex-mex to sit-down seafood hotspots. Yum.
From the nostalgic Wave Swinger to the wet n’ wild Zoom Phloom to the soaring Sky Coaster—Morey’s Piers has 3 piers filled with world-class amusement park rides for all tastes. My favorites were the creepy Ghost Ship, the the view-friendly Giant Wheel and the wooden roller coaster, the Great White!
A great destination for families and couples alike, Morey’s Piers offers a range of hotels for all styles and price points. The Pan-American offers luxury beachside with a jet-set vibe and a great breakfast. The Port Royal has more of nautical angle with large suites available and a beachside location in Wildwood Crest. The Starlux Boutique Hotel and Blue Palms Resort give you a laid-back atmosphere with a slice of Americana.
Such a cool concept, I was blown away by Artbox on Adventure Pier. Artists have set up workshops where they repurpose and handcraft jewelry, glass, paintings, sculptures and more on site. The funky space is crafted from reused shipping containers and at night, there are School of Rock concerts until the wee answers. This is a must-see!
