Love it or hate it, it's an institution at the Jersey Shore, and Wildwood's Sightseer Tram Car is just about to power up for its 76th season.

'Watch the Tram Car, please! Watch the Tram Car, please!'

It's the command that haunts you in your sleep long after you've spent a day on the Wildwood Boardwalk. It can make you roll your eyes at times, but would you have Wildwood without it? I wouldn't.

Did you know that when the Sightseer Tram Car first debuted on the Wildwood Boardwalk in 1949 it cost only 10 cents for a one-way ride?
