I love it when I stumble across these home videos on YouTube of Seaside Heights going thirty, forty years ago.

Things seemed so simple back then. It's so cool looking back and seeing the boardwalk and rides at Casino Pier back in the '70s and '80s.

Video quality had a lot to be desired back then. According to YouTube, this video was shot on 8mm.

Enjoy shots of The Chatterbox, Doorway to Hell, The Jet Star, Bumper Boats, The Sky Ride, Himalaya, The Log Flume, and some shots of the 1980 boardwalk fire damage

 

I also found this home video from Seaside Heights going back to the '60s. The quality of this video from the '60s is actually better than the YouTube video
