2) The Kong attraction is nice looking, although it is basically just a swing ride. I guess I was expecting it to be something a little more creative. I knew when I was down in mid-April and Kong was barely even started that there was no way it was going to be anything super incredible, but it looks nice....my major complaint is that literally HALF of the lights on the Kong tower are already burned out/do not work right. It looks awful at night and is terrible show for a brand new attraction that's plastered all over the brochures!

5) Adventure Pier is IMO in a sad state and needs something. The Pier is basically empty at this point. You have a couple of kiddie rides like the carousel and maze and perhaps if your family is teens and up you have the Great White for a semi "family" ride. But everything else is definitely an extreme thrill level. They need to balance the pier out.

6) Is it just me or are the sky ships down more often than you'd think they should be? Every single trip I find they are down at least part of the day most days. I did get to ride them (Love the waterpark/beach views), but it seems crazy to have them closed so often as they do not require high staffing or anything.


 
Ok i missed this thread so a little late on commenting but:
 
2) I think the consensus is Kong is a disappointment. It's not terrible but not much exciting about the look or the actual ride. More like an  overhyped misstep. Even my dad who doesnt go on rides or usually comment on them wasnt impressed at all.  
 
5) Seems like they wanted it be known as the extreme ride pier. It doesnt appear that strategy is working out so great
 
6) True. It's not just you
 
Wow im being all critical of my Moreys Piers. Either someone hacked into my account or im just not feeling normal today  Cheesy

We're talking about another visit this year.
 
We went last year and overall enjoyed. Not 'great' but better than some places down there I tried.

I've seen them here and there, but nothing to worry about.

We ate there a few years ago and the food was pretty good, although, it wasn't amazing. Also, I think they forgot the alcohol in our drinks. Overall, I'd be willing to give it another shot.

I was born in 1984. If I start with that year, we came down for ten days when I was 8 months old. I'm 31 now. Roughly a week per year. Not to mention day trips, last minute weekend visits, and in 8th grade I did two weeks.
 
Roughly a year of my life. I should do more. Next year we're talking two weeks, once in May, another in September.
