Finally, there is work being done at this horrible eye sore that used to be Blackbeard's Cave.

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

What will happen to the land that Blackbeard's Cave sat on?

The County will preserve the land that Blackbeard's Cave sits on which will add just under 27 acres of preserved open land to Ocean County.

Right now, that land sits near more than 800 acres of open land known as the New Jersey Pulverizing Site and will eventually lead onto the Barnegat Trail.

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 the Bayville, Beachwood, Pine Beach area, 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 for the boardwalk, we had it right in our town.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
