Going to miss the early birds here cry but might catch you for a slice or something, Diane and Sean Cool  
 
(I'm trying to be more prudent this year about posting actual vacation dates online, since I live alone and all that…)

Yes, trams are $3.00, though they offer a variety of discounts(book of tickets during the Morey's winter and spring sales, wristband discount for unlimited rides until early evening, etc).
I still have a ton of tickets from purchases years ago. I am more of a walker, but occasionally I will ride the tram just for the sake of riding it.  It is a great way to travel the boardwalk on a rainy day.

I recall Al having a report last year that Moonshine may not be returning to the Pavillion this year, but I have not heard any updates.  The whole Pavillion is clear of any of his equipment, but it remains roped off.

So no Joshua Moonshine?  

Also, Trams are $3.00 now?  


I don't recall seeing him last year but he mentioned he's usually travelling so doesn't make it all the time.  He's a house down there, so.  
 
I usually don't do the Trams when I'm by myself, but I do ride if my mom comes up.  She can't make it too far otherwise.  Although, if she does, we go early in the day and get the daypass that runs til 5:00.  Then I'll head back later at night and walk myself.

There was one in the Boardwalk Mall, I think it's still there but it mostly just sells music memorabilia now (T-shirts, posters, headphones, etc.)
 
There's a store called The Rock near Douglass Fudge, they used to have a small collection back in the day.
 
There was another, around the early 2000s, on the north end of the boards near where I used to stay that was open for a bit.  I forget the name but last I saw it was around 2003.

The reviews are hilarious.  Most sound like they're written by the owners, or the very least, friends and relatives of the owners.

You can see them from the outside here, Mike:

See that extra piece that has a flat roof up there?  It's where the steps connect for accessing those rooms.

The Pagoda has two rooms on the fourth floor.  You have to walk up there, since the elevator in located in the main building, and it's only three floors.

 
Really, I never knew that and I stayed there many times.  My $$ is sill on it was a fake review.
 
Nobody in  their right mind would say that dump is wonderful
 
Latest review from this past weekend titled "Nightmare In Wildwood!”
 
I also find it funny how so many people know about MIMI that she pretends the lady Pat owns the hotel

Very good pics. Looks like the old sign atop the Douglass pavilion is gone.

I didn't notice any missing signs on the pavilion.  The neon signs are still on the two ends...although they still don't work.

It looks like the "free hugs" shirts are in the past for good.

these days people stand in Union Square in NYC with signs that say free hugs Smiley
