Stolen Parking Space

I know that a parking lot is for parking, but this is ridiculous.

Arriving at Morey’s Piers this morning there is something a little out of the ordinary. It’s overcast, a little windy and overall a pretty quiet day here on the boardwalk, but the last thing you would expect when you get out of your car in the parking lot is to be parked next to a rollercoaster train.

This morning there they were, both trains from the Great White. There they sit waiting, but for what? Well, after thousands of trips around the Great White track they will be taking a trip of their own, a home coming of sorts, they are on their way back to Hatfield, PA, where they were born. They will be receiving a rehabilitation by their manufacturer, PTC (Philadelphia Toboggan Company). Among the upgrades will be improved lap bars, new upholstery and new wood. They will be leaving in the morning, and I’m excited, cause then I can get my parking space back.

They are updating, making final changes and closing up shop for the winter. If you would like more info on one particular ride let us know. I’ll try to get some info and post it to our blog.

Hi!  I log on to Wildwood’s boardwalk cam occassionally in the early morning to watch the sunrise over Mariner’s Landing pier. I’ve been noticing this week that the lights on the Ferris Wheel and some of the other rides are on 6 o’clock in the morning!!!  How come???  Just curious!
