Wildwood Amusement and Water Parks
Morey's Piers & Beachfront Water Parks
At Mariner's Landing, roar around the Can Am Raceway at record speeds in self-propelled motor vehicles on the go kart track. If you're looking for thrills above the crowd, take an exhilarating spin on the Sea Serpent. This 55 mph., looping coaster turns riders upside down three times forward and three in reverse while suspended from two 120-foot hills. For a hair-raising adventure, you won't want to miss Ignis Fatuus. Descend to the ominous bowels or venture onto the haunted decks of this ghost ship. Dark spaces hide live actors waiting to pounce on unsuspecting visitors, while strobes and special effects enhance the creepiness of the chilling experience.
Raging Waters offers fun for all ages with its 1,100-foot long Endless River, Shotgun Falls that expels riders into 10 feet of water, serpentine body slides and Lil' Dipper kids' pool. This park is located at 3501 Boardwalk, and hours vary. Check their website for times and ride packages.
Splash Zone Water Park
Come prepared to get wet at every turn while enjoying all the wild water attractions offered. Find your thrills on The Beast of the East twisting and turning through white water rapids on this 6-person raft ride. Zoom through wild turns and unexpected drops in complete darkness on The Midnight Run before plunging into water below. Take aim and prepare to fire at Hydro Zone with a huge arsenal of water squirters, dumping buckets and cannons. For those wanting to get really drenched, stop by The Giant Bucket. Every 3 minutes at the sound of the bell, 1,000 gallons of water comes crashing down, so if you don't want to experience the sensation and weight of 4 tons of water then steer clear. Located at Schellenger Avenue and the Boardwalk, check out their website for hours of operation and rates.
Ocean City Amusement
Gillian's Wonderland Pier has been entertaining visitors since 1930. This family haven is just 40 minutes north of Wildwood. Float so high you can almost touch the sky on the Giant Wheel. Take a spin on the all-time classic Tilt-A-Whirl or feel the wind in hair on the high-flying Swings. For those wanting bigger thrills, get wet on Canyon Falls Log Flume or scream with your hands held high as you accelerate down the track of the Runaway Train Coaster. Travel down memory lane astride a beautifully carved white steed on the park's classic Carousel built in 1926. From mini golf to the Glass House maze, this is a great family day trip. Located at 6 Street & Boardwalk, check them out on-line for hours and rates.
