“All that its cracked up to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014

So so much to do. A day on dry rides was only enough to hit 1 pier and there are 2 others. A day at the water parks left us wanting more so we returned a 2nd day. The boardwalk activities can easily keep you busy for another day. Parents and kids loved it.

“The Taco Joint has great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014

Not reviewing the attractions at the pier, but the Taco Joint at the pier. The food was a welcome change from the greasy overpriced stuff available elsewhere on the boardwalk. Plus, you can order margaritas and beer and sit outside.

“A good place for day trips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014

Morey's Piers are quite fun. There are three piers, Surfside, Mariner's Landing, and Adventure Pier. Mariner's Landing and Surfside are larger piers with more variety in rides. Adventure Pier is smaller but has more Xtreme rides (like the Skycoaster and Springshot). There are also two waterparks, Raging Waters and Ocean Oasis. There are rides for kids of all ages. Right along the boardwalk, there are many restaurants (almost all very informal), stores, and game places. It's a great place to spend a day.

“Great place for all day fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

Our whole family loved it. We have two kids (5 & 6 y/o) and there was plenty for them to do even though they couldn't ride some of the big rides due to height restrictions. We were there from early afternoon until almost 11 at night and... wow, what a great experience when all of the lights are on! The large Ferris Wheel is a must! Highly recommend that you buy an all day pass and then plan to spend the day. Another family we knew thought that their kids would only want to ride a few things, so they bought tickets instead. When all was said and done they spent more on tickets than it would have cost for the all day passes. And don't be afraid to buy the all day pass for the boardwalk tram car... you will not want to walk back and forth between the pier attractions after a while! Another positive is that the prices on the food stands weren't outrageous. We went onto the boardwalk for meals, but for snacks and drinks in between we used the pier stands and were very pleased both with the food and the prices. My only complaint is parking... had to pay for parking through 6pm and then go pay it again for the rest of the night...never heard of such a thing. Other than that, the day at Morey's resulted in a happy (and exhausted) family.

“Boo, hiss.....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

They say happiness doesn't have a price, but you know what? With four kids, it does. I was extremely sad to see how EXPENSIVE it was. Most games were $5 a pop and the rides were on average between 5 and 8 tickets EACH. Each ticket costs $1.10.... even if you have ONE child it is costly, so imagine with FOUR. We bought a package that cost $55 and it gave us 65 tickets and a book with some coupons,which was helpful but I honestly feel that it should costs less. All in all, my kids did enjoy themselves, they each got to go on two rides and my older two (ages 9 and 7) understood when we only played one game and gave the prize to the youngest. I'm lucky that they are so understanding, but I was not happy. Family friendly, does NOT mean what I thought it meant in that it should be affordable for FAMILIES. Fortunately, we stayed at a great motel with an awesome pool and avoided the boardwalk for the remainder of our stay. If you are planning to visit the piers and boardwalk, consider taking out a small loan first.
