Jersey Shore amusement ride ticket sales starting now – and online

    If your kids (or, okay you) are big into rides, take note: it’s pre-season ticket sale time.

    Ride piers in Atlantic City, Ocean City, Sea Isle and Wildwood knock down prices of tickets every year in time for Easter, which is why you’ll see mobs of people on the Boardwalk on the actual holiday (plus, it’s a nice tradition to stroll the boards in anticipation for the summer).

    But you don’t need to buy on Easter Sunday. Sales are starting now.

    This year, Ocean City’s parks are running sales online, according to Ocean City Patch, as is the Steel Pier in Atlantic City and Funland in Sea Isle. Moreys Piers in Wildwood started their sale yesterday – if you can’t make it down, you can also call to buy tickets.

    I often tell people looking to save money on their summer vacations to plan ahead. This is one easy – and big – way to bring down the cost of summer fun.
