Wouldn't it be great if whoever bought Blackbeard's made it a happy, family, fun place once again?

Blackbeard's Cave was a great spot for my daughter and I miss those great memories she and I used to have.

I would take her and her friends to play at the arcade, then head out to the bumper boats and the mini roller coaster. It was adorable for little kids.

Blackbeard's Cave was a little adventure amusement park on Rt. 9 in Bayville, NJ. It was filled with adorable smaller rides in Adventure Station. They had swings, a cute dinosaur ride, a dragon roller coaster that kids loved, and so much more. They had a bouncy house, batting cages, a climbing wall, and go-karts. The fun we had in the tank tag.

As a parent of smaller children in Bayville, Beachwood, and Pine Beach, this was perfect for us to bring the kids. We didn't have to drive to Seaside Heights or Point Pleasant Beach for some summertime fun on the boardwalk, we had it right in our town.

We had so many events and appearances at Blackbeard's Cave. They had a little snack bar off to the side, near the miniature golf, across from the batting cages, and they had specials for our listeners when they would come out, it was just a nice time. The memories never end.

I've heard so many rumors of what the plans are for Blackbeard's in Bayville. Will it be another smaller amusement park and someone will come in and clean it up? I hope so, it would be so good for Bayville.

These pictures show the run-down and abandoned Blackbeard's. It's so sad to think, not that long ago, we were having a lot of fun at Blackbeard's. Just seeing the water emptied out of the bumper boats did it for me. Check these out. All the memories come rushing back to me.
