My family is trying to decided between Wildwood and Dorney Park for the last Saturday in August and it looks like it will be Wildwood. I was able to find a cheap way to get to NYC at $32 from 30th street and to AC for $22 from 30th street but was curious about Wildwood. Thanks

Renting a car seems like the best way for a family to get anywhere over an hour away, IMO. Dorney is fun in the fall for families - they do a haunted park theme and it's not nearly as crowded as it is in the summer. I just looked at the price through Costco and it's $55/day from an enterprise place in Northern Liberties.

Per Google Maps, options from downtown would be mostly a combination of NJ Transit buses - with an occasional train assist - that would require you to connect in AC for an average of three hours or more. Perhaps reasonable for a single or couple on a tight budget...but I agree that a car rental would be easier if possible.

I was thinking of going alone if the family chooses Great adventures. I think Wildwood is more appealing than Great Adventures

There are NJ Transit bus lines that go to Wildwood--and most all other shore points. But it could get expensive with a family---I'd try to rent or borrow a car.

Yeah. My Mom takes one to Sea Isle all the time. The NJT website is pretty weird though-not sure which line it is.

If you want to rely solely on the bus, it looks like the 313/315 NJT bus will get you there. Get comfortable, however, for an 3 to 3-1/2 hour ride.

Definitely for the most budget conscious of families. If I were going solo, I'd sooner get off at Sea Isle City or Avalon via the 315.
