Transforming Mariner’s Landing into Morey’s FEARS - Terror on the Boardwalk

This Sunday, Mariner's Landing will close for the season following the first annual Souper Sunday Cook Off and Closing Day Celebration (wristbands will be only $22).

That will give the Morey's Piers staff less than a week to finalize preparations for its first ever (and loooong awaited) Halloween event.

Morey's FEARS - Terror on the Boardwalk will debut on Friday, October 14th and Saturday, October 15.

It will continue on the following two weekends (Oct. 21-22 and Oct. 28-29).

Suspense is building as the witching hours draw near...


Transforming Mariner’s Landing into Morey’s FEARS - Terror on the Boardwalk

Morey’s Piers Transforms the Pier in Just One Week 

The Wildwoods, NJ – October 5, 2011 – Mariner’s Landing officially closes for the season on Sunday, October 9. After that, Morey’s Piers’ staff has less than a week to twist the pier into the mangled frightening carnival that will be Morey’s FEARS - Terror on the Boardwalk.

“It’s an all-hands-on deck event,” said Dino Fazio, Director of Pier Operations. “We have about four days to erect two custom attractions, theme the rides, create new signage and prepare all the fog machines, lights and other electric components.”

The event will feature CarnEVIL, a custom-created clown-themed scare zone filled with demented ex-circus performers as well as CornStalkers, a corn maze constructed right on the beach behind Mariner’s Landing. Morey’s Piers’ team members are building these unique attractions in-house with items found, repurposed from old rides or created by the staff.

“We’re building entrance façades for the mazes along with an extensive list of unique props that will help push the entire event beyond expectations,” said Mike Monaghan of the Morey’s Piers Facilities Team.

Guests may also recognize props from old dark rides and possibly some other high profile Wildwood Boardwalk props, like a haunted segment of the infamous tramcar.

Morey’s FEARS - Terror on the Boardwalk will take place on Friday and Saturday nights, October 14 through 29 from 6:30-11 p.m. This is a gated event and admission will be required. Tickets are $25 and include unlimited access to all available rides and attractions for the night.

Be warned: this event is NOT for the faint of heart (or children under 8). Guests are not permitted to wear masks, costumes and/or makeup to the event.
