I have no money right now, so it will be parks that have not been previously displayed in a comprehensive Photo TR and "highlights" of Sleaside Heights.

Keansburg
Casino Pier
Funtown Pier

Sounds cool but does this mean
Larrygator is going "Down the shore?" :lmao: God people in NJ and saying that I lived there for 16 years and never said it once. Trips like this sound cool though.

A little background first.

So I volunteered to help clean up the beach in Sandy Hook, New Jersey this morning for a free Disney ticket. Since it was listed as opening day for a couple of the northern most Jersey Shore parks that don't have many pictures in the index, I decided to go take some pictures. I actually didn't ride anything day.

My day consisted of:
9AM - 12:30 = cleaning up Sandy Hook, I did not take any pictures because I didn't want any distractions.
1PM - 2PM = Keansburg Amusement Park
3PM - 3:30 PM = Casino Pier at Seaside Heights
4:00 - 4:30PM = Funtown Pier at Seaside Heights
5:00 - 5:30 = Jenkinson's Pier

Keansburg Amusement Park is listed as operating since 1904, I remember as a child whenever my family would go away to Florida, Virginia, Lake George or Hershey for vacation we always heard from our neighbors (the Giresi kids) how they had a great time at Keansburg for a week. I was jealous and always wondered what this Keansburg place was. Even when my family went to the Jersey Shore we never went to Keansburg. When I finally visited Keansburg, I realized that my family made a better choice in our vacations than the Giresi family.

Keansburg is a small little place catering mostly to local families. They have a small waterpark and about a dozen rides for adults and a similar number for kids only. To me the highlights of Keansburg is the 80 year-old Spook House (which was not open) and the Auto Scooters, which feature a mix of Old Lusse Auto Skooters and some newer cars that have there speed jacked up to 11. Unfortunately, most of the food stands were not open today as the boardwalk food is quite good. Anyway here are pictures of the rides, more amusing pictures will follow when I post Seaside Heights photos.

What the hell is the police activity for?
PICT0273.JPG
Oh, it's just a St. Patrick's Day Parade 10 days too late. On to the amusement park.
PICT0275.JPG
The other coaster is a Miler kiddie named Sea Serpent.
PICT0280.JPG
Wildcat helix - This coaster was SBNO from 2004-2007. For a while I never thought I would get this credit.
PICT0282.JPG
Keansburg can go old school on your A$$ with a Loop-o-Plane. I really should have taken a picture from the side instead of head on.
PICT0285.JPG
I really love this ride. Probably my favorite small footprint flat introduced in the past 20 years.
PICT0286.JPG
Here's a list of the rides and prices, SOP for trip reports.
PICT0287.JPG
Keansburg spent all their theming budget on Pharaoh's Fury, their Egyptian Swinging Ship
PICT0290.JPG
The last time I rode this Double Shot it had a good pop of air.
PICT0291.JPG
I'm hoping this is still operating and just closed today, one of the few remaining from the Pretzel Amusement Ride Company.
PICT0293.JPG
Indoor Carousel - I'm sure you all needed that witty caption.
PICT0297.JPG
Unfortunately, many of the Lusse were on the sidelines.
PICT0298.JPG
Even the non-Lusse cars run fast here. It's an interesting game of cat and mouse as people in the Lusse try to catch the lighter, but much faster cars.
PICT0300.JPG
I think this one had Plantar Fasciitis!
PICT0302.JPG
I believe it is a state law that every Jersey Shore park have a Moby Dick.
PICT0303.JPG
And lastly we have a Michael Jackson themed Gravitron. That's all I got from Keansburg. No really, now go away!
PICT0304.JPG
SFMM used to have a Tilt-A-Whirl, Keansburg still does. That does not mean Keansburg>SFMM.
PICT0307.JPG
The mini-George Foreman Grill ride. I hate these things
PICT0309.JPG
Maintainence was still putting together the Chaos.
PICT0310.JPG
Who doesn't love a Super Slide?

I hate the Tornado, it never seems to spin nearly as much as I want it to. Its an okay ride, but give me an orbiter any day, that thing is fast and forceful as hell, but good fun.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

Wow! Brings back memories... we used to go there every now and again when I lived in Rumson. Looks like it is still as ghetto as I remember!
