Casino Pier is a family-oriented amusement park, resort, and getaway located right on the Jersey Coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It is billed as a stellar way for the entire family to get away from it all and enjoy the Jersey Shore experience to the utmost. In addition to access to the ocean waters and the beach, Casino Pier also offers visitors a wide variety of attractions, rides, and entertainment options to choose from along the pier so that there is something to suit each and every member of the family.
As is the case with any amusement park, the main reason visitors flock to Casino Pier is to experience their selection of 40 exciting rides. These rides have been imported into the park from all over the world and span the full range of intensity level from rides appropriate for small children to heart-stopping intense roller coasters and thrill rides for teens and adults.
Some of the park's most popular attractions include the creepy Stillwalk Manor haunted house, the Cetrifuge, the Wave Swinger, and the Pharoah's Fury. Traditional favorites that any amusement park enthusiast would hope to find are also part of the mix including bumper cars, a log flume, and a relaxing sky ride from which the entire park can be seen from a breathtaking bird's eye view. Popular kiddie rides include the Convoy Race, the Frog Hopper, and the Dizzy Dragon. Casino Pier even includes an exhilarating rock climbing wall for those who are looking for something a little more interactive.
When visitors are looking to take a breather from the rides for a moment, they're encouraged to visit Casino Pier's casino/arcade area. Included is an extensive video arcade that features traditional favorites such as skeeball and pinball, as well as all the latest video arcade games. Tickets can be earned and then redeemed on fun prizes for the entire family. Racing video games that allow visitors to compete against one another can also be found here and are popular with park goers of all ages. For the adults, there is a wonderful selection of slot machines available as well.
Also to be found in the casino and arcade area is a beautiful antique carousel. It is one of only two surviving handmade carousels in the entire state of New Jersey and has been lovingly restored to reflect all of its former glory for the pleasure and amusement of the park patrons. As an added highlight to the carousel ride is equally noteworthy music provided by New Jersey's only continuously operating Wurlitzer Military Band Organ. Gifts are also available for visitors to commemorate their ride and experience.
For the convenience and amusement of guests, Casino Pier also features special events such as theme days. Potential patrons should check with the park directly for a current event schedule, but past theme days have included Team Sports Players Day, Scouting Day, and Public Awareness Groups Day. Admittance to the park and various features can also be purchased through several convenient package deals that are available throughout the season.
