Win a FREE Annual Pass to Miracle Strip in Pier Park

We’re halfway through the summer season in Panama City Beach, but we still have months of warm weather and plenty of time to enjoy Miracle Strip @ Pier Park.

You may remember a few months back, when Teddy and Jenny Meeks finally brought their vision to fruition by opening the much appraised and anticipated Miracle Strip @ Pier Park.  It all started with the original Carousel they purchased, restored and opened in Pier Park early 2009.  People came from all around to relive childhood memories of their carousel adventures of yesteryear.

Today, three original rides from Miracle Strip and an exact replica of the ferris wheel entertain thousands every week and light up the summer nights at Pier Park.  Beautifully landscaped and adorned with a cheerful staff, Miracle Strip @ Pier Park is a really fun place to hang with your kids.

Here’s what we’re gonna do. We are giving away one Annual Pass to Miracle Strip @ Pier Park.  This comes with a buddy pass, meaning that if you win it,  you can take your kiddo on a ride and not have to send him/her alone.

  1. Jason,
    I want to say “Thank You” to Teddy and Jenny for bringing a little dreamland for young and old to Pier Park. It is a memory maker.

    I would love to win the pass for my grand daughter. Actually if we don’t win I will probably buy her a pass next Spring. We looked back on all the tickets that were purchased for her and we should have bought one this year.

    I have been coming to Panama City Beach for about 40 years, many visits from GA per year. My husband’s parents used to have an old travel trailer in the Beach Campground in the late 70’s-early 80’s. We went there all the time until we purchased our own little place in Laguna Beach. I loved that we were camping right beside the Miracle Strip roller coaster. I could watch the loud rattling coaster climb the hill and then hear all the squeals and laughs as in made its shaky way on the curvy rails. I truly miss the Miracle Strip; we took our children every summer multiple times. We had to buy zebra soft serve ice cream every visit and I had to always ride the swings….what a thrill. Besides the fun rides, they had great shows to watch while enjoying the ice cream. I felt I had the place memorized. To the right the swings the left the bumper cars, straight ahead the roller coaster after you go through the arcade. I had been well over 100 times to the park and was shocked they tore it down prior to building the condos that were planned on the site. My husband and I looked at the plans and preconstruction for the site since we had bought preconstruction condos in PCB. The plans had included the Carousel as part of the condominium complex. Last year when the carousel was brought into Pier park we went with our granddaughter, Carli then 1 to ride the “Horsies”, I was so excited then, when I was told of the plans to bring in more rides. She loves the rides even more this year since she has been to PCB several times. The packs of tickets are bought for her, they are priced reasonable for the thrill she gets. Carli now 2-1/2 loves the balloon ride, but I don’t recommend riding in the backward position if you get queasy 🙂 Carli has had her Great Grand Mother ride the balloons with her this last Spring, her Uncle, her Father and me her Grammy. Everyone also takes turns riding the horsies with Carli as she waves each time she comes around to the family waving at her on her beautifully painted horsie. During our vacation visits to PCB we go almost every night to Pier Park and watch Carli ride her 2 favorite rides. She is still a bit afraid of the loud airplane ride but I am sure by next year it will be one of her favorites as will be the beautiful ferris wheel that has a view of the ocean and pier. The memories are priceless and so are the 100’s of photos we have taken of Carli riding the balloons and carousel. I cannot wait to see what else is planned for the new little Miracle Strip. Hopefully soft serve zebra ice cream and a free live stage for entertaining. I am sure groups would love to come in and bring their dance, theater, choirs or cheer leaders to perform in the middle of all the fun.
    Blessings,
    Joy Carlisle

  2. I would love to win this pass! When I moved here, Miracle Strip was already torn down, so I never got to experience the excitement. I have heard great stories from the wonderful locals and tourists I have met about Miracle Strip…now I would like to be able to share mine! Thanks Jason, for all the updates on PCB Daily!!

  3. My three grandkids, age 8,5,and 4, are going to be with me the first week of August and it sure would help my retirement budget to have a free pass! This is their first visit to PCB and I can’t wait to see their eyes when we go to Pier Park and the Miracle Strip. Right now they only know that grandma “goes” to Florida, they don’t know what an experience they are in for at PCB!

  6. I will be 50 in the fall, and I used to go to PCB every spring and summer growing up. I remember both amusement parks and the memories that I have from both of the amusement parks have stayed with me. My dad used to bring our whole family down, as this was his favorite and about the only place he would vacation at. So you might say it is in the blood as now my children love to go to Panama City Beach on spring breaks and vacation. There is just something for everyone.

  14. We enjoyed Miracle Strip for 10 years straight with our kids, now 24, 21 and 16. We continued through out the years to take them and have a blast. Now that we have 2 grandsons, we are looking forward to continue the tradition that they in turn will continue for as long as Miracle Strip continues. Thank you for offering this opportunity for entertainment for our grand children.

  15. WARNING! WARING! WARNING! POSSIBLT CYBER SCAM WARNING! It is almost impossible to believe anyone would give away one Free Pass to the Wonderful, Exciting, Totally Cool, Beautifully landscaped, with Cheerful Staff, Miracle Strip @ Pier Park. This is a really fun place to hang (taking kids is optional). So now you know it is possibly a ….SCAM. They already said there are NO Passes left to buy this year! If you DO NOT believe me, at the end of this contest write: PCBDaily.com and request the name of the winner. If “Alan Ray” did not win the Free Pass to Miracle Strip Pier Park, you will absolutely know this was a sensational piece of advertising genious and that I did NOT win. SO BEWARE! Because if you DO NOT enter, you CAN NOT win! ;^)

  16. As a child, summer vacation at the Beach was a much anticipated yearly tradition. After sunning and splashing at the Beach all day, the evenings offered their own magic at Miracle Strip. For many years now I am blessed to live here in this breathtakingly beautiful paradise. What a gift it is to see the joy and hear the squeals of delight from my grandchildren as they enjoy the rides at Pier Park. I love experiencing this with them. Panama City Beach good times and memories are the BEST and FOREVER!!!!
