The Wildwoods, NJ – October, 2012 – For 9 nights in October, Morey’s Mariner’s Landing will transform into a nightmare – called Morey’s FEARS – that will include dark incarnations of the Sea Serpent, Super Scooters, Tea Cups, Pirates of the Wildwoods, Rollie’s Coaster, Musik Express and Moby Dick. Also, look for an especially traumatizing Ghost Ship experience at the heart of the event.
“Last years opening event was ten grueling years in the making. We’ve been talking about it, having meetings and making plans; we just needed a centerpiece to justify something of this magnitude,” said Jack Morey, Executive Vice President.
The Morey Brothers and their team have spent those ten years researching successful Halloween events. They have made trips to the most intense haunts and horrors all over the country, as well as around the globe, to make Morey’s FEARS the most immersive, intense event possible.
“The event again this year is being produced in house by a 20-member team of associates from all departments,” said Dino Fazio, Director of Pier Operations. “All of our full time associates will play a role in the build up and nightly productions of Morey’s FEARS.”
Morey’s FEARS will feature-new horrifying, Halloween-only attractions built exclusively for the event. CornStalkers, a creepy cornfield that ominously sprouted on the beach, will twist, turn and terrify those who dare to enter. Decaying clowns no big top would take creep around every corridor of CarnEvil. Both mazes will only appear during Morey’s FEARS.
And new for this year Terror Trench !!
“Our architect has done some incredible work designing and rendering two new mazes, and we’re preparing a heightened Ghost Ship experience by doubling the actors throughout,” said Jack Morey.
Executive Chef Wally Jurusz will cook up some seasonal favorites for the event, as well as food items new to Morey’s Piers. Pumpkin funnel cake will be available at various eateries on the pier, as well as Wally’s famous chowder in bread bowls. Other themed and seasonal treats include ice cream in chocolate or pumpkin cake bowls, pumpkin shaped pretzels and more. For drinks, hot cider will warm your chilled bones and Jumbo’s Restaurant will serve seasonal craft beer to guests over 21.
Morey’s FEARS will be a gated event with admission required for entry. General admission for the event will be $25. Season Pass Members can present their valid Season Passes at the gate for $10 off the admission price. Attendance to the event will be limited each night to provide guests with a more intimate experience as well as to maintain a high level of show quality.
