There isn't a much better setting for a park than right by the ocean. The coasters might be mediocre at best but it's a nice place. Lots of cheesy dark rides and some cool flats. Clementon was a nice surprise.

Morey's was incredible! Such a great setting, and plenty of attractions - I don't think it gets much better than an amusement park on the ocean.

The Nor' Eastern looks quite smooth in that POV - I'm quite impressed. Even though I had two brutal rides on it (yes, the front is as bad as any other seat), it's quite fun to experience all of the leg choppers. =)

Which makes Wildwood a little slice of heaven.

Looks like that was one awesome day!

That was a great trip report, based on the event that it made me laugh, and that it's of a park ON A BEACH!! A taste of heaven is the way I would describe it!

On a side note, is it just me, or did that SLC seem faster than the average? I may indeed be fooled by the visceral sensation produced by the camera being so close to the rails, but if anybody else senses this, I would encourage other members to post something about it so I don't feel like an lonely donkey. :p

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

That Ghost Ship walk through looks amazing, I've always wondered why more parks didn't have a permanent walk through haunt attraction like this that they could operate on a regular day to day basis then really plus for the Halloween event.

Been working on the Knoebels update... OMG! A hell of a lot of photos to go through! Going to take me a little more time, especially with Deep South Bash this weekend, but here is something to hold you over...

an EPIC video of TPR Awesomeness on Knoebels' Phoenix at night! This was hands down one of the best ERT sessions we've ever had on a TPR Trip! Enjoy....

Amazing!! The most fun I have ever had on a roller coaster. The first ride of ERT I don't think I have laughed so hard on a ride ever.

I'm guessing most big parks look at the extra staffing costs and liability issues, etc. and turn up their noses. And that's a bunch of rubbish, say I.

After all the furor over the head scarves at Rye Playland last week, I gotta lol at the Pheonix ERT video. That is spectacular. =)
