The Return of Kong

The roar is unmistakable. A large group screaming in delight, in unison, as they whip around the air.

It can only mean one thing: The boardwalk beast is back.

For years, everyone tried their best not to talk about the 800-pound gorilla in the room…errrrr….on the pier. The classic Kong ride at Morey’s Piers was beloved by all, but gone too soon. Fear not, thrill-seekers (unless you’re afraid of gorillas) because Kong has officially returned to Southside better than ever.

Fly in the sky as you circle Kong 60 feet above the air in an airplane — hey, doesn’t he have a thing for plucking those out of the air?
