Morey’s Piers Brings Back Kong

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Morey’s Piers & Beachfront Water Parks in the Jersey Shore’s Wildwoods, is bringing back its iconic KONG attraction. The gorilla-themed amusement ride was a landmark in the 1970s and now returns as a brand new adventure.

The new $1.6-million ride will feature Kong climbing a 60-foot-tall lighthouse, where eight vintage war planes will duck and dive around King Kong, bringing riders 26 feet into the air.

The attraction will sit in a new 3,000-square-foot space with food and beverages, retail shops, and a comfortable sitting area with charging stations. The new ride opens Memorial Day Weekend.
