 Review of Giant Wheel @ Moreys Piers
-1 Rating Posted by: Hercules on 8/23/2005 7:08:00 PM
Allow me to swallow my pride and inform anyone reading this that I am deathly afraid of ferris wheels. I have a good feeling that it is because I have seen those ferris wheel accidents over and over again on Real TV, and other tabloid reality shows. So, needless to say, I was about a needle and a thread away from a stroke when I got onto this thing. "Why would you go on it if you hate them?", you might ask. Ah, yes, the power of a girlfriend. I was clinging on for what I thought was my life. I was white knuckled, grasping onto the sides of the car, eyes closed, telling her not to move around because she was going to rock it and we were going to plumite to our demise. Im such a freakin wuss. Well, you should have seen me in the haunted house. But anyway, when I finally opened my eyes, the view at night was amazing. I could see all of the piers and Boardwalk lit up in all of their glory. Incredible. It was truely a romantic experience. Not only this, but it is just a classic boardwalk staple on a grand scale. When you think Moreys Piers, think the Giant Wheel. Well, you will probably walk away thinking "Watch the tramcar please." But when that crazy, and annoying, phrase gets out of your head about 3 weeks later, think of Moreys Piers and you will have an image of the Giant Wheel in your head. That is why I enjoyed it.

hercules, its perfectly legit to be scared on ferris wheels. i was a bit scared on the ski lift thingy at moreys. slow rides give you a lot more time to imagine terrible outcomes.....

This wheel is HORRIBLE or GREAT especially on a windy night because the ride rocks like crazy. Especially if it is crowded and you get to sit near the top for awhile. Herc wait for a windy night and try it again.

I remember one time on this wheel they had a bad ride op manning the controls and he would jerk the wheel to a stop everytime making the gondolas sway like crazy. You would have s*** if the same guy was operating it that day. LOL

That was the first thing we would look for upon entering N Wildwood. We would always try to be the first to see the Giant Wheel. I am going back many years before the Morey family purchased the piers.
