It’s been a couple of years since we took a ride down to the Wildwood boardwalk. The kids started expressing an interest in waterslides this year, so we were excited to treat them to a day at Morey’s Piers. This place is second only to Disney World in terms of cleanliness and wholesome family fun in my book, and the kids didn’t remember our previous trips, so we knew it was time to return.
So we put Buddy in doggy daycare and took the 1 1/2 hour drive down south. Wildwood is just North of Cape May which is the southernmost point in New Jersey. We don’t go for the beach or for the boardwalk – we go for Morey’s Piers.
Morey’s is so much fun. We arrived at Mariner’s Pier around 10:30am and saw that the ferris wheel was going even though the rides do not. As we walked closer, we saw that it was a special event and guests were enjoying breakfast in the sky. How cool, right? Morey’s Piers always has fun events like these. The last time we were there in 2015, we attended a special breakfast with superheroes and princesses. The kids loved that one! The next fun special event is in honor of National Dog Day on August 26, Morey’s Piers in is treating dog lovers and four-legged friends to $5 off Doggie Dash registration, taking place on September 9, with the code: NATDOGDAY. The code is good from now through 8/27.
We headed straight for the water park and enjoyed about 4 hours of water park fun at Raging Waters, a delicious quick-service lunch, rides on the pier and arcade games. Ryan even won himself a Spiderman doll in the quarters game.
It was such a fun family bonding day for all four of us. When you buy Morey’s Piers combo passes which include water park fun and rides, you have access to rides on all three piers and three separate water parks. We had such a fun time that we decided we’ll stay for the weekend next year!

We are adding Morey’s Piers to our list of summer destinations for next year. There’s just so many places to explore. My kids would love this place and I am sure they’ll want to try their hand at PacMan!

I love taking my kids places like this that have rides and games. You are right it’s perfect for a family bonding time. I just wish they didn’t cost so much.

Our Family World says
Looks like a fun park to visit. If this was only closer to my place, I’d take the kids there for one last adventure before school starts. Oh and that PacMan game brought back memories of video games I enjoyed when I was young.
Paula A Bendfeldt Diaz says
This looks like such a fun amusement park to visit with the family. The water slides look awesome!
It has been pretty warm here lately so anything with lots of water sounds great to me. This looks like it was a great getaway.
This would make a fun road trip for us. We haven’t been to NJ much at all, but the kids would absolutely love this! Looks like there is a lot for the kids to do.
Amber Myers says
Oh fun, this looks like an incredible kids. I know my kids would have so much fun here. My son would love that PacMan game.
