Noice. Also, it looks like they've pretty much wrapped up their business with Nor'easter. As someone who's planning to visit Wildwood for the first time in over twenty years this spring and never got a chance to ride it, I'm eager to see if the track replacements will put an end to all of the horror stories I've heard.
^ I certainly do hope so. After riding T3 and Thunderhawk on the same trip last year, I got to experience the worst and the best of the SLC's. If you've never been to Michigan's Adventure you won't believe me but their SLC is actually really good. The SLC layout has a lot of potential, and as long as there's no shuffling, it's fun.
I'm starting to be more okay with giving it another try, especially since at Winter Adventure they said that they were inspired to take a shot at the re-tracking because of the good reception and supposed smoothness of the new SLCs being built in other countries.

I had that exact question, so I spent some time yesterday counting the rides and how many tickets are required for each, and I came up with 85 tickets with no rerides. I was counting the coasters plus rides like It, Atmosfear, and Zoom Phlume. They sell a wristband for $59, so if you're wanting to ride a lot at all three piers, I'd go that route.
Andrew beat me to it but yeah if you want to do all of the big coasters and the better flats you might as well just get the wristband since its cheaper than paying for those rides individually plus you'll want some rerides on TGW, It, Atmosfear, the flume, etc. Don't completely count out the kiddie coasters. I'm probably biased but Flitzer is an awesome zippy little bugger not to mention the sheer LOL weirdness of the restraints, and Rollies Coaster is worth a ride w/ the wristband just for the bragging rights of riding a crappy Pinfari with OTSRs. The mouse on the other hand is absolutely skippable.
For the past few years I've just gotten tickets, mainly as Xmas gifts from the folks (its one of their ways of making sure my sisters and I visit during the summer months) but also bought them on my own if I'm only up for a ride or three, but twice last summer I got a wristband for the day, and now have a Wild Pass for all of 2017. Its just cheaper if you are going to be riding all day or if you want some rerides on the better attractions. Also I believe that if you have a wristband the upcharges (Screamin Swing, Skycoaster, Spring Shot, Skyscraper) are cheaper - I think half price?
^Thanks for the added advice! I'll definitely plan on getting the wristband when I go this Summer then! Oh, and sorry I've been lazy and haven't responded to your message yet, but yeah, I'll keep you in the loop on when I go, and maybe we'll be able to coordinate!
I'm definitely up for the bigger, unique flats, as well as the notorious flume, but I'll check out the kiddie coasters too, if you think they're worth it! I'm not one to ride kiddie coasters just for the credit, but if there's a good reason to, I will. Thanks again for the info!

The "kiddie coasters" aren't really kiddie coasters. They're adult coasters, they're just portable, and honestly Flitzer is probably the second best coaster at Morey's (maybe third since the Boomerang is actually quite good).
