Runaway Tram will stand 40 feet tall and will reach up to 29 mph during its 922-foot-long course. It will feature one train with 10 two-person cars, and will be located on a reconfigured Surfside Pier. The custom train and station will feature a retro, seaside boardwalk aesthetic.

Runaway Tram will be themed after the Wildwood Sightseer Tramcar, an icon of the Wildwood Boardwalk since it debuted in 1949.

Runaway Tram will be Morey’s Piers’ seventh roller coaster.
