Although Morey’s Piers & Beachfront Water Parks defines itself as a classic seaside amusement park, it certainly stands out amongst others of its kind. Located on the famous Wildwoods Boardwalk and complete with three piers, two water parks, multiple dining establishments and more, Morey’s puts its own twist on the boardwalk experience.
Mariner’s Pier, located at Schellenger Avenue in Wildwood, offers the atmosphere of a traditional amusement park with classics like the Super Scooters, Teacups, Musik Express and Giant Wheel. However, do other traditional amusement parks let you eat breakfast on their Ferris Wheels? Hop aboard Morey’s Giant Wheel and experience Breakfast in the Sky – a gourmet, white linen and china breakfast offering spectacular views of the ocean and all of the Wildwoods. Mariner’s also offers irresistible boardwalk treats like pretzels, fried Oreos, ice cream and more, and a variety of tacos at the Taco Joint. If you’re looking for a delicious, sit-down family meal, visit Jumbo’s Boardwalk Grille & Eatery for wraps, seafood, sandwiches and Chef Wally J’s famous Cuban spiced fries!
Behind Mariner’s is Raging Waters Water Park, a wet and wild adventure for the entire family. Parents can enjoy private cabanas, a float-up snack bar 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 on the cargo nets and climbing ropes in the three-level activity area. For the thrill seekers, plummet over Shotgun Falls or drift through the Wildwood skyline on the Sky Pond Journey!
Surfside Pier, located at 25th Street in North Wildwood, mixes a variety of kiddie rides with family thrills in an environment fueled by neon colors, bright lights and music. This pier is home to KONG, a remake of the iconic King Kong that graced Morey’s Piers 35 years ago. Standing over 60 feet high, the reincarnation of the Morey’s classic will thrill you as you circle in planes flying through the sky. Underneath KONG is Kong & Co., a 3,000-square-foot retail space offering charging stations and comfy chairs, as well as chocolate covered frozen bananas, clothing and souvenirs.
Also located on Surfside Pier is Joe’s Fish Co., a contemporary boardwalk family restaurant featuring fresh seafood, local craft beer, signature cocktails and live music. New at Joe’s is a lively second floor bar overlooking the lights and action of the pier. Grab a stool and indulge in the new laid-back menu while sipping on a cold one and taking in the sights and sounds of the Wildwoods. Downstairs, you’ll find a variety of oysters, crab dip, unique salads, signature crab cakes, fish and chips, grilled local fish and more, plus house made desserts!
On the beach behind Surfside Pier lies a tropical island getaway in Ocean Oasis Water Park + Beach Club. 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. Float through the Lazy River or sip on a drink from the swim up bar, or opt for one of 10 specialty cocktails at Stubborn Brothers Beach Bar & Grille. Pair it with one of the mouthwatering menu items!
Adventure Pier between Spencer and Youngs avenues in Wildwood is the pier that ROCKS, packed with high thrill extreme rides, Morey’s world-famous wooden coaster, the 3-Point Challenge Basketball Game and helicopter rides, plus a stage that features School of Rock’s live entertainment all summer long! Check out the [artBOX], a 10,000-square-foot gallery made from 11 re-purposed shipping containers, showcasing local and regional artists’ paintings and handmade crafts.
