Seasideis a small beach community located on the Heights Barnegat Peninsulain Ocean County, New Jersey. Since 1915, amusement rides have been part of this seashore resort.
A Seaside Heights dark ride from the 1970's. This walk-through attraction, called the Doorway To Hell, was a George Mahana Haunted House Company built attraction that utilized truck trailers. Unfortunately, this ride was dismantled shortly after the 1984 Great Adventure haunted house fire. We would like to thank Mike Vlkovic for providing this picture and information about the attraction.
Seaside Heightsis not as large as Wildwood or Ocean City, it has two amusement piers. One of these piers contains a great two level ride-through dark ride. The other pier had a walk-through dark ride which, unfortuantly, left the pier at the end of the 2006 season due to differences between the owner of the ride and the owners of the pier.
