Keansburg,Funtown,Casino,Fantasy,Steel.. Photo TR!


Recommended Posts

So every year I pull together a crazy ass day trip to NJ to get credits.. This year... Like the last 2 I put a trip together about 3 days before going... Woo...

 

I had been to 4 of the 5 parks we planed to go to.. But we ended up finding a 6th one on the way (coasterless)

 

The day started off with me and my friend Rob leaving here at 6.30am and driving all the way to Keansburg NJ getting to the park a little after 12pm where we found my good coaster friend Medusa1861.. Also named Rob.

 

We started at Keansburg.. Then went down to Funtown Pier and Casino Pier... And then off to what was at first our last stop... Fantasy Island... But it wasnt that late and Medusa Rob really wanted to go to Atlantic City and get the Steel Pier credits.. I had them so I didnt really wanna go.. But because we finished all the stuff *I* needed.. I said what the hell and we went down to Steel Pier.. On the way the other Rob shouted out we just drove past some rides.. So I pulled a U-Turn and we drove back to find out what it was.. It was some Family Fun Center place with a few rides.. But no coaster.. But it was still a neat find.. After that we ended up getting into Atlantic City and did Steel Pier and such.. And then I drove Medusa Rob home back in northern NJ... And finished my drive home with the other Rob getting home around 4am.. After not being killed in a deathy thunder storm we ran into on the Mass Pike.

 

Yay photos.....

Keansburg might just have the best S&S DS ever... And you get 2 cycles as 1 ride.

So you probably drove right past me when leaving Fantasy Island. I work at the Wendy's on Route 72 in Manahawkin.

 

Looks like you had a good time! I haven't been to Fantasy Island for the rides in a while, just the pop-a-ball arcade games.

So, since no one cares about the person who has only 30 posts on this forum. (I do read it a lot, it's more reliable than screamscape!) Well Here's James' TR from a different perspective. Ok, So Friday, 12:15 after walking around Keansburg back and forth, James finally arrives. First we hit up Sea Sepent and don't get denied.. because.. I'm from Jersey.. I got connections. The ride was running kind of slow, I didn't get all the airtime i remember. Wildcat, Ran into the ride-op that reminds me of a poor Bon Jovi (sorry about having no picture). Then for some strange reason the tourists from Mass. want to visit keansburg beach. Luckily we didn't step on any needles on the way. Afterwards I lead them to the Hazlet Burger King, where i got us all free food, well, Rob and James freee drinks, I ate the food. See, New Jersians have connections!

Then the rest is classified... It was a lot of gossip.. and listening to techno... And extra credits. My #s 108-#111

dinokid.thumb.JPG.aec9a55cb91f36eb6495bfbcaa3d982e.JPG

At Steel Pier. I kind of got confused by the coaster's theming...Dinosaurs..in New Jersey?

Jamippo.thumb.JPG.e800f9fda2902493d20f34251862327a.JPG

1.5 hours later... Hippo is cheating on me with James.. or Hippo was cheating on James with me. Either way, I'm sad

notfun.thumb.JPG.eac081619d0a7bdf68adebefeca32af6.JPG

James is just "acting happy" because this is not the superior Mouse in Seaside.. Exit 82 on the GSP

bestbuds.thumb.JPG.24feb8f4086313513a5bb0c9c24bc605.JPG

While James and Taco were in the Gravitron, I went on a date with Hippo. I think we're ready to take it one step further

handshake.thumb.JPG.856c32a08291d691c79f5adce718e414.JPG

Attention! James rides his 483rd coaster! Congratulate me. Dusa and Taco* did.

*Taco is other Rob

"Hold on, I need to get this really good picture of Double Shot"

So THAT is the "got crabs?" stand.. And it is at Keansburg. And the sign is because everyone in Keansburg DOES have crabs(minus 3 people).. Not that good kind.

The "other photo" that you see me taking from above.. err below. And yes, James/emo boy/ Canobie fan etc. IS feeling the power if you catch my drift.

That Moser tower at Fantasy Island is great for a kiddie ride. You get 12 drops a cycle and in the middle of the car, I got that stomach dropping feeling on each drop.

 

Too bad the pricing sucks, $3.75 for the Merry Go Round?! (and basically all of the non kiddie rides)

Dude , Ive been to that Wendy's and it sucked. They always seem to be out of Dr. Pepper when I go!

 

Nice trip Reports guys! Wildcat was my Final credit in NJ and I was also glad it was open when I went.

 

We don't want your business. Go to Burger King.
