I think its 95 cents now.

That being said that bracelets are a good deal if you ride alot. Also they do have good deals if riding during the week from 12:30-6

Another idea is you can buy 250 tickets for $150 (60 cents each) and at least you know they never expire.

And of course they have the offseason sales as well.

So there are options out there to avoid ever having to pay 95 cents or $1 a ticket.

Now I know I already posted which were my 10 favorite rides of all time, but I wanted to add 1 as a honorable mention as well and with a question about the ride.
I don't know if the Flying Galleon aka (the Sky Ship) is also a current favorite of yours, but it is for me. There is nothing prettier at night than going around the track seeing all the lights and the sounds when you are in the back by the ocean. I only would go on this at night for that reason. This ride reminds me of the Monorail that was at Fun Pier years ago. (i was a fan of that also) Maybe since I am not young, I like the more mellow rides nowadays.  Wink
My question is why does this ride break down so often? It seems like they are always doing something with it mechanical wise. I just hope that it stays on the pier, because it fits in more than ever since the Ghost Ship's arrival.

For some reason I only went on it a few times during day. I guess too preoccupied with the other things on the pier at night to try it. It sounds like a good idea.

I've never gone on it at all.  I enjoy the big seagulls that you pedal that run around a similar track.  I'll have to try it.

I did the seagulls during the day and its not a good idea on a hot day. You wouldnt think it was that bad but..when its hot out and your peddling it starts to get real hot fast and you use alot of energy up.

My family has gone on both.  They seem to like it.  It's a change from the extreme rides; a throwback to the old rides of yesteryear!!  Although my one daughter says the gulls scare her to death; imagine that.  She'll go on the Nor'easter, but that little ride scares her! Grin

I'd have to look into this.
 
I did end up getting some bracelet thing for this year.  It was $41.  Not sure on the prices as I didn't directly purchase.  My mom's sister did.  Last year they somehow managed both the water parks on Friday, and the regular piers on Saturday, post Labor Day with said bracelet.
 
I'm not so concerned with the water parks.
