Since 1949, this boardwalk icon has been shuttling locals and shoobies alike up and down the 2-mile bumpy boulevard of games, food and good times.
But for those that blindly walk the boards, paying attention to only themselves or whatever is two feet in front of their face, they will eventually cross paths with the beast and it will let them know, in a polite way, it isn't happy.
“Watch the tram car, please” echoes through the smell of pizza and drowns out the sounds of children’s laughter as those unfortunate souls who are in the way are startled from their selfishness while a tram car bears down on them at a slick speed of 5 mph.
This year, the Wildwoods celebrates the 70th season of the Boardwalk Sightseer Tram Cars.
Originally built in 1939, these cars made their way to Wildwood and helped boost business, eventually becoming a symbol of the boardwalk.
To celebrate this milestone, on June 11, anyone can ride the tram for 10 cents one way, the same cost of the tram back in 1949 when they made their debut on the boardwalk.
Here are a few fun facts about the Wildwoods tram cars.
