Morey's Piers-New Attraction: Ghost Ship


In the 1940s the Ignus Fatuus, a ship involved in highly secret testing with nuclear power, space and time travel fell off the radar. The ship disappeared only to turn up on the boardwalk of Morey’s Piers in Wildwoods, New Jersey. Spooky enough but in fact this is a brilliant new attraction on the eastern seaboard.

This is a great story based loosely on the legend of the Philadelphia Experiment, which is a great urban legend, but is the attraction any good?

The Ghost Ship at Morey's Piers opened with absolutely rave reviews. The video above takes you through the opening ceremony, with the guests led in to the ghost ship to see it themselves. As you can see, the visitors gave it very high scores. Now open to the general public, the ship is not recommended for children under twelve as the scare factor is too high!

It promises to be a different ride each time. Taking two years to design and six months to construct, it replaces a miniature golf course. That is certainly not a bad alternative!
