This long, long boardwalk stretches for two miles and hold three amusement parks and two water parks. For an overview, take a ride on the “tram car" trackless train that runs along the boardwalk.
Restaurants, arcades, and other amusements will fill your day with fun, and at dusk the bright lights and neon signs come out. It is a surprising fact that the Wildwood Amusement Piers have more rides than Disneyland. Kiddie rides include airplanes, trucks, dune buggies, boats, and trains, plus carousels and bumper cars.
Thrill rides include an inverted looping roller coaster, The Beast of the East (the largest family raft ride on the East Coast), and a 140-foot-high Ferris wheel. Perhaps its most famous attraction is the Great White--the East Coast's tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster. The ride is built right over the beach, reaches a speed of more than 50 miles per hour, and begins with a 25-foot drop into a dark tunnel (it later adds a 105-foot drop).
