East Coast’s Tallest Drop Tower Attraction Opens to 8,500 Scouts at Morey’s Piers in Wildwood

WILDWOOD, N.J., May 19 /PRNewswire/ — Thousands of scouts heading to Morey’s Piers’ “Beach Jam” scouting event will be the first to preview the tallest, fastest, and most intense drop tower attraction on the East Coast, called AtmosFEAR! The scouts start arriving in Wildwood on Friday evening, May 20, for a weekend of camping on the beach and fun at the Jersey Shore’s premier seaside amusement destination. This unique event draws scouts from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

The overall height of AtmosFEAR is 175 feet. The ride experience features a two-minute 140-foot climb in a 12-passenger vehicle. After reaching the top, a special launch system forces the vehicle down in two seconds at a speed exceeding 45 MPH – creating a vertical acceleration of 4Gs! Failsafe magnetic brakes bring the vehicle to a smooth stop. The ride experience will be further enhanced with custom LED lighting, fog and thunderous sound effects.

Morey’s Piers is located on the Boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey, and consists of three amusement piers and two beachfront waterparks. Morey’s Piers is committed to providing a spectacular family recreation experience in an exceptionally safe, clean, friendly and unique environment. Morey’s Piers amusements are located on Spencer Avenue, Schellenger Avenue and 25th Avenue; Raging Waters waterparks are located on Schellenger Avenue and 25th Avenue.

Ticket prices range from $35 for a book of 50 ride tickets to $44 for an adult combination ride and waterpark pass on the weekend.
