Morey’s Piers announces special events, wins awards


Morey’s Piers have been on a steady streak lately. Can you say “Duh, Winning!”? First Executive Chef Wally Juruz took home Best Entree in the Men R Cooking event. More recently the park took home “Best New Attraction” in’s Reader’s Choice Awards. Now, well…besides IT opening, the list keeps growing.

Morey’s Piers beat out the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in the best new attraction category for their Ghost Ship haunted walkthrough attraction.

“It’s interesting to see an attraction that relies heavily on a theatrical concept rise over all these purely mechanical, though truly impressive, rides,” said Jack Morey, Executive Vice President of Morey’s Piers. “It reinforces the fact that the classic culture of the Wildwoods and ‘America’s Boardwalk’ is very much alive.”
