Q: What about water safety?
Raging Waters and Ocean Oasis Waterparks are staffed with hundreds of nationally certified lifeguards and ride attendants for proper ride dispatching and guest assistance in pools. First Aid Stations are located inside both waterparks and are equipped to handle minor care emergencies. Our safety program has received national and international awards for excellence. Ride safety rules are posted at each pool and attraction. We also ask parents to teach kids about water safety before you visit. Please be sure non-swimmers or weak swimmers wear life vests.
Q: Is there a fee for babies in the waterparks?
The fee for children under three is $5.00 in both Raging Waters and Ocean Oasis Waterparks. You will receive a free swim diaper with your admission. If you bring your own swim diaper the admission fee will be waived. If you provide your own swim diaper it must have elastic around the legs and all the way around the waist.
Q: Do I have to pay to use a life vest or a flotation tube at the waterparks?
Absolutely not. Raging Waters and Ocean Oasis Waterparks do not require a fee for use of our life vests or flotation tubes. There are a limited number of life vests located throughout the parks in silver bins. Life vests are recommended for all guests that consider themselves to be weak or non-swimmers.
Q: What are the best places to go with a toddler?
We never forget the little ones! Both Waterparks have large children’s areas for your children to enjoy. Ocean Oasis Waterpark & Beach Club on Morey's Surfside Pier features Bonsai Beach, an interactive water play area for kids of all ages. Raging Waters on the Morey's Mariner's Landing Pier is where you'll discover Shipwreck Shoals, a 10,000-square-foot pirate adventure featuring cannons that shoot water, Camp KidTastrophe and water slides sized just right for your little ones.
Q: Where should I go with questions?
If you have a question that is not answered on this website, please contact us. Once at the piers, all your questions can be answered at Guest Services located at all three piers and both waterparks.
Q: Are there many rides for kids?
YES! We have over 70 rides (more than virtually any other amusement park), over 20 of which are for little kids!
Q: Do parents need tickets or a wristband to ride with their children?
Yes. While admission to the Amusement Piers is free, every rider must have the appropriate value of tickets on a Wild Card or a valid wristband to ride. However, with our Parent’s Limited Ride Pass, a single adult may ride on select rides while accompanying a paying child who does not meet the height requirements. Look for a designated sticker on the ride's height sign. These rides include the Carousel, Howitzer, Jump Around, Kiddie Train, Tiny Tea Party on Surfside Pier and Carousel, Convoy, Pink Elephants, Airplanes on Mariner's Pier.
Q: What if my child is too small to ride?
Kids come in all sizes, just like our thrilling rides. Most rides have height requirements that all guests must meet in order to ride alone or, in some cases, to ride at all. To ensure the safety our guests, Morey's Piers staff has been trained to strictly enforce all requirements, and will do so regardless of the situation. As such, there will be occasions when a child is on the borderline of meeting a requirement. To help ensure consistency, Morey's Piers has developed an Official Height Measurement Program, available at any Pier Guest Services. If your child is on the borderline of any height requirement, please come to Guest Services upon your arrival and ask to be officially measured. An Associate will measure your child on a hospital quality Stadiometer and issue a wristband noting his or her exact height. Your child will still be measured at every ride, but if there is a question concerning height, the Operator will check the wristband and allow your child to ride if appropriate. We also offer our Parent’s Limited Ride Pass which permits a single adult to ride on select rides while accompanying a paying child who does not meet the height requirements. Look for a designated sticker on the ride's height sign or ask Guest Services.
Q: Who decides what the height requirements on each ride are supposed to be?
All rider requirements, including height, age, and weight restrictions, are determined by ride manufactures, the state of New Jersey, and Morey's Piers Management. All rider requirements are FOR YOUR SAFETY, are not negotiable, and will be strictly enforced at all times. Morey's Piers offers Official Height Measurement at any Pier Guest Services. If your child is on the borderline of any height requirement, please come to Guest Services upon your arrival and ask to be officially measured. An Associate will measure your child on a hospital quality Stadiometer and issue a wristband noting his or her exact height. Your child will still be measured at every ride, but if there is a question concerning height, the Operator will check the wristband and allow your child to ride if appropriate.
Q: Can I bring my scooter or rollerblades with me?
Morey's Piers is a family destination. As such, radios, rollerblades, scooters, skateboards, etc... are not permitted on Morey's Piers property at any time. Bicycles are only permitted before 10 AM. Morey's Piers reserves the right to remove from the premises, without refund, any individual that prevents others from enjoying the Piers.
Q: What should I do if my child needs a band aid?
A First Aid station is available to our guests in each pier and waterpark. First aid on Surfside Pier is located next to the Great Nor'Easter roller coaster, behind the Mini Scooter Bumper Cars on Mariner's Landing Pier, and under the Great White roller coaster station on Adventure Pier.
