This pier opened in 1905 as Ocean Pier. It was purchased in 1935 by William Hunt but was destroyed by fire on Christmas Day in 1943. It was rebuilt using concrete and reopened in 1957 as Hunt's Pier. It was renamed The New Hunt's Pier in 1986. A division of Conklin Shows
acquired the pier in 1988 and renamed it Conko's Party Pier. The park closed in
1992, but reopened in 1996 as Dinosaur Beach when the owners of Steel Pier in
Atlantic City purchased the pier. Dinosaur Beach closed at the end of 1998. Morey's Piers bought the pier in 1999, presently only has non-amusement plans for the property.
