A day at Morey's Piers

Friday, October 15, 2010
On Sunday, we had the opportunity to spend the day at Morey's Piers in Wildwood, New Jersey. I was invited to Morey's Piers as part of its first-ever Boardwalk Bloggers Bash. We enjoyed a day of amusement rides, face painting, boardwalk fare, and all-around fun.

Morey's Piers has been a Jersey Shore landmark since 1969. It is the largest seaside amusement center in the Western Hemisphere. The amusement complex includes 4 amusement piers, featuring over 100 rides and attractions and two full-scale beachfront water parks. With games, water slides, mini-golf, carousels, extreme rides and roller coasters, Morey's offers something for every member of the family. Although the water slides were not operating during our visit, there was plenty to keep us occupied for hours.

We enjoyed plenty of time on rides that went round and round and round.

The face painting was a huge hit!

It was Sunny C. Gull's birthday, and he was more than happy to pose for pictures.

We got lucky. It was an unseasonably warm day for October. The perfect day to enjoy the sights and send summer on its way.

The beach in October is a far cry from the crowds of the summer.

As you leave Wildwood, you pass a retro-looking Wawa. It's like a time warp. You almost feel as if you are living in the 1950's. Wildwood is famous for its Doo-Wop style motels, of which there are about 200.

If you get the chance to visit Wildwood, you must stop at Morey's Piers. A trip to Wildwood is not complete without it!

Disclosure: I received complimentary wristbands for myself and my family for unlimited enjoyment of the amusement rides. I also received complimentary vouchers for slices of pizza, french fries, and a water game. Morey's provided the children with complimentary face painting and a stuffed version of their mascot, Sunny C. Gull.
