Remember the Up N’ Atom? The Bubble Bounce? The Toonerville Trolley and Casino Arcade? Check out these and many other rides from the past on the Boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey. Filmed in 1957 by my Dad with his trusty Bell & Howell 8mm film camera. I recently transferred my family’s old films to digital format, and wanted to share these excerpts that show some of those fun rides alot of us remember. And by the way, I’m the littler of the two kids you’ll see on the rides! And there’s more coming soon…Enjoy.
