The Wildwoods’ award-winning Boardwalk is 38 blocks of family fun, packed end to end with shops, amusement piers, water parks, eateries, live entertainment and more. Your family can have a blast on the Boardwalk all day long, with plenty to do within its 2.5-mile span!
Take a morning bike ride on the boards and view the Wildwoods from a bike seat. Bicycles are allowed on the Boardwalk from 5 a.m. until 11 a.m. during weekdays, and until 10:30 a.m. on weekends and holidays.
Spend your afternoon staying cool at one of three water parks on the Wildwoods Boardwalk. Splash Zone Water Park offers a variety of experiences and water adventures for all ages! Within the clean, safe park, you’ll find 300,000 gallons of water-based fun including body, tube, flume, raft, interactive, speed and children’s water slides, as well as other play areas and the Giant Bucket which spills four tons of wet refreshment! Morey’s Piers Raging Waters Water Park is a wet and wild time for the entire family. Parents can enjoy private cabanas and the lazy River Adventure, while small children can play in one of two unique kiddie play areas. Or, kids can challenge mom and dad in the three-level activity area. For the thrill seekers, take the plunge down one of the large waterslides! Morey’s Ocean Oasis Water Park + Beach Club is a tropical island getaway. Among the most exciting collection of waterslides and play areas at the Jersey Shore, you’ll find private cabanas surrounding a fire pit, forming an atmosphere of tranquility.

Fill your evening with thrills as you go wild at Morey’s three amusement piers! Enjoy classics like the Super Scooters, Teacups, Musik Express and Giant Wheel, or hop aboard the newly refurbished faster, smoother and bluer Great Nor’Easter roller coaster. The beloved coaster recently underwent a $5 million re-tracking project, resulting in a 95-foot drop, a sleek ocean-themed paint job, and 2,170 feet of new and improved track that will deliver a smoother and faster ride – so smooth your grandmother could ride it!
Continue the thrills at Ripley’s Adventure Maze, where you can explore the one-of-a-kind candy-themed labyrinth made up of thousands of reflections. A second attraction at this location, Time Freak, is the ultimate race against time. For three times the fun, visit The Vault Laser Maze and see if you have what it takes to break into the state-of-the-art bank vault without setting off the alarm!
Between all of your Boardwalk adventures, don’t forget to fuel up on your favorite seaside treats. Pizza, French fries, ice cream, popcorn and even sit-down meals are available to satisfy your stomach. The options are endless!
Don’t miss the entertainment the Boardwalk has to offer! Monday through Thursday, the Boardwalk hosts parades at 7:30 p.m., and Friday night at 10 p.m., a fireworks spectacle lights up the night sky.
If all of this fun and excitement wears you out by the end of your visit to the boards, the world-famous Sightseer Tram Car will transport you from one end of the Boardwalk to the other.
