I mean, sure, if you're a fan of needles.


NJ has some of the cleanest beaches in the country, I think tied with New Hampshire for first.

The cleanest beach awards have a bunch of weird technicalities but yeah, the New Jersey, Delaware, Northern Maryland (basically Ocean City) and New Hampshire beaches are the cleanest in the nation. Delaware won in 2013 but then in true Delaware fashion Rehoboth Beach didn't bother to have enough testing done to qualify even though the ones they did have were pristine because you know... slower lower Delaware. F**k it, they were probably too busy drinking.

And yeah I found the beach in Wildwood to be very clean. It has a very gradual slope compared to the beaches I'm used to and even most beaches in the same state like Seaside so the waves break over a very large area. It feels a lot like a Carolina beach actually.

I'll have red wine with my slice of donkey.

I think it's also water quality too. Since NJ and the northeast has some of the toughest environmental laws, the water has cleaned up way faster than the rest of the country. It bums me out when people say the water is gross in jersey. Sure it's not always clear but it doesn't mean it's polluted.

Back on track, I loved dare devil dive at sfog and can't wait to ride another eurofighter.

I definitely wouldn't be surprised if it was an Iron Shark/Krater clone.
The best coaster is Boulder Dash

Honestly regardless of what the layout is it's almost a guarantee that it'll become one of the best coasters at the Jersey Shore almost by default. Gale Force and Great White are the only real competition (though it pains me to say that because Flitzer or GTFO).

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Even though I vehemently despise beaches (I stick to boardwalks), I'd definitely agree with this statement. I noticed this when I visited Wildwood last summer. Made me SMH even more when that video went around showing how much garbage covered the beach after Memorial Day weekend this year.

But that's most of Jersey/Philly/NYC for you.

^^Yeah I remember that video and it was really pretty infuriating. When you have the only beach in the state that doesn't charge beach fees (I'm not counting Atlantic City, that place is a dumpster fire and not charging fees is just a desperate attempt to get people to show up) and a city government that's entertaining the idea of beach fees and only decided against it because of pressure from voters and from North Wildwood and Wildwood Crest's refusal to charge them, things like that are going to ruin it for everyone. The argument is due to the cost of cleaning the beaches and while the argument is bull***, things like that are going to make their case for them.

Construction began last week to rebuild the pier at Casino Pier that was destroyed during Super Storm Sandy. The new pier will not extend into the ocean as the old pier did. Instead the new pier will be adjacent to the boardwalk extending northward over the sand.

Casino Pier Begins Expansion Northward
By Catherine Galioto

SEASIDE HEIGHTS – New pilings stand erect on the beachfront, marking the next step in expanding Casino Pier northward.

The amusement pier will grow more than an acre to make way for additional rides, the result of a controversial land swap that pitted environmentalist and public access advocates against those in support of the expansion, who said it would increase tourism and sustain the economy of Seaside Heights.

Now, the project is underway, with the temporary dunes recognizable in the off season pushed aside at Sherman Avenue to mark off where the new footprint of the pier would go.

Nearby in the Casino Pier’s maintenance lot across the street of Ocean Terrace, the parts of a new blue and green roller coaster sat unassembled.

The activity comes after several months of public hearings and awaiting approvals between all parties, for a plan that would take 1.36 acres of Seaside Heights beachfront and give it to Casino Pier so the owners could build the pier northward with more amusements.

The pier hasn’t rebuilt to its pre-Sandy size, and instead of rebuilding back out over the ocean, the Storino Family who owns Casino Pier is pursuing beach land for its $30 million project to add rides such as a giant Ferris Wheel.

In exchange for giving a parcel of beach to the north of the Casino Pier to the Storino Family for its project, the borough of Seaside Heights would get one of the Storino-owned parking lots in town, between Carteret and Sampson Avenues. That lot could possibly become the home of a museum that would house the historic carousel, transferring ownership of the landmark, hand-carved ride for preservation by the town.

Originally, Casino Pier sought to build its pier south, buying land south, but a deal could not be reached between the owners. Rebuilding the pier to its length over the ocean is cost-prohibitive, its representatives said. That back part of the pier famously fell into the Atlantic Ocean as a result of Superstorm Sandy, the Jet Star roller coaster sitting in the water.

This week, construction crews arrived for the initial work, temporarily closing the portion of the boardwalk near the Aztec to move in equipment.

Indeed, and that is a beyond vertical drop (from Page 3).
