We recently visited the Wildwood Boardwalk & the Morey's Piers. Now, I grew up in Philly & spent all my summer's down in Wildwood & I understand that times change & things get expensive, but these three pier's are OUTRAGEOUS! It's bad enough that the all-day pass/band is $50.00, but about a third of the rides are not covered by the pass/band & are extra fees! While my 9 year old & his friends, (a fellow 9 year old & an 11 year old), had a blast, there were a few rides they wanted to get on. I told them that I was not spending more money on rides that SHOULD have been included, so they were a bit bummed. I realize that "tourist" areas are more expensive, but C'MON! The only saving grace of the day was the relative inexpensiveness of the food & drink on the rest of the Boardwalk. If this had been an amusement park, (like Six Flags), you'd be stuck paying $4.00+ for a bottle of water or soda & have nowhere to go, as they have you "trapped"! At least there were cheaper places to eat & drink. When I was growing up, there were 5 separate piers that were fun & enjoyable & each offered different rides & attractions. Now that there are only 3 piers, (all owned by The Morey's Pier Corp), they have you "over a barrel" when it comes to rides. I'm not saying It's my last visit to Wildwood, but it's the last one for a while!
