NEW Rides

More rides! - We're adding more spins, flips and thrills for your enjoyment!

Shockwave

Take a spin on Shockwave!

The Boardwalk's wild new ride sends you rocking and reeling on a crazy spinning wave of fun.

The 65' Shockwave holds 24 riders on individual motorcycle-style seats facing outward around a large disk. The disc spins, while also rocking riders back and forth on a curling, wave-shaped track. Shockwave will be located next to the Undertow roller coaster on an expanded upper deck overlooking the new Main Entrance. Known in the amusement industry as a Mega Disk'O, the ride is manufactured by Zamperla.

Typhoon

Flip out on Typhoon!

Expect a storm of adrenaline when Typhoon launches you six stories above the Boardwalk for some serious upside-down thrills!

Typhoon swings riders upside-down on two spinning arms, reaching a height of 60' over the Boardwalk. The classic thrill ride will be located just inside the new Main Entrance, providing an exciting visual for guests entering the park. Manufactured by A.R.M., the new double-arm ride is similar to a former Boardwalk ride (also called Typhoon) which was replaced by Sea Swings in 2009.

NEW Attraction Designs

More fun! - New designs for two favorite Boardwalk attractions.

FRIGHT WALK moves beneath...

Are you brave enough to venture under the Boardwalk?

An all new FRIGHT WALK with more scare space and a hauntingly fantastic new entrance!

The Boardwalk's popular walk-through attraction is being relocated "under the Boardwalk" and upgraded with additional scares and more square footage. Fright Walk's spooktacular makeover will impress the bravest thrill-seekers with new high-tech surprises and some good old-fashioned frights.
