I don't recall a particular stink at the village, but I was a kid and it was twenty years ago.  Huh

 
 
I absolutely remember the stink of seaport village.  Bad choice of wood...

How about an iconic roller coaster to go along with said castle/boat ride.

let's see...first we'll add a moat, then a haunted boat ride, and to top it off, a two-story haunted castle.  To make things interesting, we'll theme the whole complex after Dracula.  How's that?

 
I can hear the music already.

I find the poll very interesting that the 3 lowest vote getters are:

The Strand.....Heart breaking to see the remnants of the Strand falling apart cry

Seaport Village....sad to see that empty pier....good idea that fell apart. Huh

The Wildwood Diner... You had to have gone there to see how wonderful a place it was...beside the food, the vibracy of the place just transended the structure....so much greatness ...a real doo wop experience. Cool
Now a vacant lot. cry

 
 
Many losses, doesn't mean those are not missed.
 
With essentially limited options on Rainy days, I can't see why a revamped Strand couldn't make a go of it....actually, I always thought of the convention center as a possible rainy day movie option as well, the only issue being when do you open and getting first run movies for a part time business?
 
I agree with you on the WW Diner...without a doubt, the most authentic doo-wop ( sorry DooWop Diner) place that WW had.
 
Seaport Village - How much do you think the "stink" of the wood effected the ultimate failure of the place? That stink was BAD when it first opened. I heard that they tried to remedy it, but maybe first impressions doomed it.

while I think it is a good idea,,it has to be limited to when the boardwalk isn't too crowded,,say the early afternoon hours
