So I am back and all was well. Weather was perfect except for a brief morning overcast and then drizzle on the beach the one day, but the sun broke and it was great. Did the Sling Shot and the other extreme ride that goes in circles, it was fun. My GF was terrified lol. Also went on the Silver Bullet which was enjoyable, as well as did the HH Seafood all you can eat crabs which was awesome for $18 a person.


Does anyone know if Ocean Oasis isn't heated like Raging Waters? It seemed colder, and I know it doesn't open until well after Raging Waters does. Also, what is the gong thing that goes off?


Lastly, I've determined that Sam's may have the best pizza but I am unsure. I like that they always have a hot slice and not a cold reheated one!


One more thing, the claw machines seem to get harder to win each year. Greedy arcades?

 
I noticed that this year too. The claw machines are getting ridiculous.

No, it's not a dance.

I'm referring to that notorious 'bump' in the boardwalk in front of one of those t-shirt stores somewhere  between Baker Ave. and Roberts Ave. I believe.

Have you tripped on it yet?

I keep forgetting it's there and I trip on it almost every Friday night when I walk the boards.

It's Worse when walking North on the boards.
It's Not as bad when walking South.


 
 
I think I might have come across this bump.  
 
This past Saturday, I was walking north on the boardwalk and unexpectedly "stumbled across" a bump. I immediately thought to myself, "I wonder if this is the same "bump" I read about on the Doo Wop Message Board ?"
 
It was (is) between Spicer and Garfield, in front of a T-shirt shop, south of Boardwalk Mall, just south of "Polish Water Ice".

Regarding signs: The Candyland sign looks awful, and I am bummed about the Douglass Fudge sign. While it hasn't been working consistently and properly for YEARS, now it just looks like a cheap ad. They could have just removed the signs entirely; it would have been better than what we got.

   Lot of awful unreadable signs now replacing Wildwood classics, or that cheesy bulb lighting like Candyland put on their building. They have all that old working neon, and they ruin their look with that rope light crap.  Douglas is a joke...those message boards are tiny....why even bother?  Also heard Laura's Fudge sign is now being mutilated with that plastic rope junk. I thought there was some sort of sign preservation law here.

Hi All!

I was blessed to be able to go down to WW from 8/24-8/29 as an almost last minute vacation!   I even was able to stay an extra night! I am grateful for being able to go away.  Thank God!  Cheesy

Question...has anyone been by Sunset Lake?  I went there one night to "check out the sunset" and expected lots of people to be there walking to and fro along the walkway...

Instead I saw  bulldozers, grass pulled up,  new widened walkway, and a  newly "divided road" along the lake...I thought what is this?  Maybe they want to "beautify" the area but I thought It was nice the way it was.  I don't know why they had to put in the new divided roadway.  

Has anyone else seen this?


   I haven't been over there lately but a lot of people are upset about the needless construction and sign & sight line blight evolving there.
Poor  planning & confusion similar to the debacle as you enter N. Wildwood at 26th & Surf Aves.
  When will this island learn that dividers, painted sidewalks and stamped concrete are not the answer.

Yes, Gateway was where my GF won all her prizes too. Others seem terrible.

Of course that last picture is the saddest, the last breakfast at Larkin's...But I'll bet the whole meal was full of exciting plans for next summer! Always helps take the edge off of leaving for me anyway!

 
 
Its bitter sweet Dave. Yes next summer is planned but SOOO far away.. A lot can happen from now till then..

I was wondering, would places like Larkin's still be open for breakfast that late in the season? Or maybe some of the motels that have breakfast/lunch cafes? I would start calling or emailing around so you know what to expect in advance. It helps to have a little schedule set up so you're not wasting time trying to find places to eat each day. We like the beach view restaurant in the Adventurer, I could see a big place like that staying open late in the season.
