FAB-O-RAMA: New Morey's Book Is Here!

The long-awaited book celebrating the 40th anniversary of the founding of Morey's Piers has arrived, and is now available for purchase at the new Morey Store, under the Sea Serpent at Mariner's Landing.

"FAB-O-RAMA: "The Story of Morey's Piers, Planet Earth's Greatest Seaside Amusement Park" was released yesterday, retailing for $19.95. According to a Morey rep, it should be available in bookstores and for purchase online shortly.

The book, which was produced with two different covers (see photo) is 192 pages with full color photos. It features a virtual tour of the Wildwood Boardwalk, leading up to the Morey family's entrance into the amusement industry in 1969. In addition, according to Coaster Buzz, there are entire sections profiling the Morey Organization's full-time employees, as well as future pier plans and concepts.

Sounds like another "can't miss" addition to the ever-growing Wildwood library. Can't wait to get a hold of a copy myself on my next trip down. If anyone is able to pick one up and would like to provide a review or any additional info, it would be greatly appreciated.

(A very special thanks to our friend Sean Carragher for the heads up on this, as well as the photo above!)
