Recently, RCTLounge member Awesomedude137 made a trip to Morey’s Pier and brought back some great pictures of the very interesting park. The park is made up of several piers on the Jersey shore and is home to some very unique rides.
The park has a rich history and has had a grand total of 9 coasters in the past, some dating back to as early as the 1950’s! Now of days, the park consist of 6 coasters, all of which were designed with space in mind. For example, the SLC and Boomerang were both installed to minimize the amount of room each took up to give space for further expansion.
Here we have a beautiful picture of one of the three piers found at Morey’s Piers. This picture shows Surfside Pier that has a Vekoma SLC called the Great Nor’ Easter. Interestingly enough, the Great Nor’ Easter features dramatic lighting at night as well as custom designed seats that minimize the typical head banging found on Vekoma Suspended Loopers. This also shows the vast amount of water slides the pier offers.
Sea Serpent is the parks Vekoma Boomerang coaster. Notice how the buildings below come as close as possible to the track to leave all available space. This does give this very ugly, (white on white, really?) boomerang a nice bit of uniqueness to it. In this picture you can also take notice of parts of the midway, which doesn’t seem to be too crowded on this June day.
A tram full of passengers drives down the cement, dirty midway. Yes, I know that the park is old but don’t you think they would clean up the park a little more? I would also like to note, how tacky all of the signs look. It is very common now among the East Coast boardwalks I believe but still, this is a bad habit I would like to see come to an end.
Clearly, the park does a good job of packing everything on top of each other! It is pretty amazing that the park can get waterslides, a massive ferris wheel, coasters, and more all in such a small place.
