The “Planet of the Apes” ride may return to Wildwood

Remember the “Plant of the Apes” ride?  This ride was on Morey’s Pier in Wildwood, NJ in the late 1970s, the ride was later changed to a “Star Wars” theme. Since 2003, it has been located near the Bait Box Restaurant. In 2010, there were signs of a restoration taking place. However, the project was soon abandoned. In 2014 and turned up for sale on Ebay and did not sell for the asking price of  $29,900.

My very reliable inside sources personally told me that this ride MAY return to Wildwood, NJ sometime soon and used for a different venue. There is no confirmation at this time but stay with us here at The Boardwalk Blog for updates on if and when this deal is confirmed.
