It’s almost summer vacation time! Do you have your Jersey Shore house booked? Well here is a little reminder about why you should visit Seaside Heights this summer whether it is for a day, the week or longer, you won’t believe what is going on in Seaside! The town has come a long way from the havoc and devastation caused by Sandy. Plans are in the works for a new roller coaster, the owner of Funtown Pier is seeking height variances to bring monster rides to the Boardwalk and this summer will be no disappointment either.
This summer Casino Pier has added the ‘Shore Shot’ a gravity defying thrill ride that rapidly propels riders 125 feet up in the air at speeds up to 45 mph and then sends them plunging back down at great speed! Not only that, but Breakwater Beach is introducing a longer go cart track with more twists and turns, a 36 inch mini golf course, a new wave pool AND two new massive 70 foot water slides. Not impressed? How about Grammy award winning Mumford and Sons headlining one of only 4 stops on their Gentleman of the Road tour in the US in 2015.
