Morey's Piers Great Nor'Easter Freedom Flight trains debut!

Postby FlyerACE1 » Tue Apr 29, 2008 10:38 am

I received this communication from Angel Daniels at Morey's Piers today!

Morey’s Piers “First Flight” Launches for Make a Wish Foundation

Wildwood, April 25,2008 - Morey’s Piers is partnering with the Make a Wish Foundation to launch the “First Flight” of “FLY The Great Nor’Easter”! On Saturday May 17th at noon. The public is invited to experience the new “Freedom Flight” seats and at the same time grant wishes to Cape May County children afflicted with life threatening medical conditions.

This year Morey’s Piers has increased the thrill-factor on one of its most popular rides. Located on Surfside Pier at 25th Avenue, the legendary Great Nor’Easter is the suspended looping coaster that opened in 1995. The coaster has received a major transformation, and the “First Flight” event is set to benefit Make a Wish in Cape May County.

The public is invited to participate and receive their “First Flight wings” by going to http://store.moreyspiers.com/Make-A-Wish.aspx and donating to Make A Wish. Each $10 donation entitles the donor to one free ride on the Great Nor’Easter during the 2008 season. Donors will be automatically entered for a chance to ride one of only 20 seats on the “First Flight” benefiting Make-A-Wish in Cape May County. (The public may enter as many times as they like, every $10 donation is one entry).

Two donors will be randomly awarded one seat each to Fly on the First Flight along with our V.I.F. (Very Important Flyer) Justin, a 14-year-old Make a Wish Child who says he is super excited about riding – “roller coasters are my favorite.”

Manufactured by Vekoma Rides of the Netherlands, the new Freedom Flight seats feature an ergonomically designed seat making the ride experience more enjoyable by holding the rider firmly, while also providing unhindered vision in all directions as well as complete arm freedom. The design utilizes a lap bar and innovative vest, to comfortably restrain Guests during the ride.

VERY cool that they're teaming up with Make-A-Wish! Thanks for sharing this Adam!

As a side note - does anybody know how many of these trains they bought? Are they replacing all of them?

It would be awesome if all of the SLC's were retrofitted with the new trains. Sure, it would cost a lot, but at probably about $200,000 per train, it would cost about $15.5 million for giving new trains for every SLC out there (39 - I'm counting all models of the SLC). Sure, $15.5 million is a lot for new trains, but turning 39 bad rides to good rides for the price of 2 SLC's and a flat ride is a good bargain, IMO, and that is spread out across 39 parks. And some of those rides are smooth already, so some of them will be great rides. Heck, maybe with a smoother ride, maybe all of them will be great, because SLC's do have good and intense layouts, those trains are just badly designed, and now they modified them to be better.

I can only hope that this makes the ride much better. I have heard some very good things about them.

I'm hoping that it is a smoother ride with the new trains. I haven't been on it it in years due to the fact that my head would get thrown around so much and I felt like my ears were going to fall off. I'll be down there that weekend so I'll give it spin to see how the new seats are.

^ My father works for Tropicana and we get the same deal every year.

I went to this event last year and it was an absoulte blast. You can't beat the price, considering it's over $40 for a 1 day wrist badn with a 3 hour water park session. I will do whatever I can to get there atleast one day of the event this year.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

A Small Mysterious Fire Breaks Out at Morey's Piers

Postby Ccron10 » Mon Jun 16, 2008 11:57 am

http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?secti ... id=6207773

At 1:30 AM a fire breaks out and burns the Super Skooter, Mini Skooter, and Seal Flume kiddie ride are lost. 3 weeks ago another fire was reported and police are checking to see if this has any relation to it. 97% of the Mariner's Landing Pier has been unaffected.

It's a good thing that it wasn't worse.
