As springtime makes its introduction later this month, the crowds will begin to form along Atlantic City’s world-famous Boardwalk. A warm ocean breeze can be felt up and down the historic Boardwalk, where one can set their sights on the iconic Steel Pier, a childhood favorite, 1,000 foot long amusement park built on a pier over the Atlantic Ocean.
The sounds of thrill and excitement can be heard up and down the pier as the amusement park offers 20 kiddie as well as extreme rides for visitors of all ages. Family favorites are the carousel, bumper cars and Crazy Mouse. The Slingshot ride is a desire for the bold and daring. A fun and exhilarating helicopter ride is offered at the end of the pier where riders have a 360 degree view of Atlantic City and the Back Bays.
The Steel Pier has recently debuted an exciting new attraction; the Observation Wheel, boasted as the third tallest Observation Wheel in the United States, found only in Atlantic City! Looking up 227 feet high, the Wheel features 40 temperature-controlled gondolas. Each gondola can comfortably hold 6 passengers, with a total capacity of 240 passengers at one time. The ride is five full revolutions, lasting approximately 30 minutes. In addition, unique packages can be created for groups and events, which include food and beverage opportunities.
This attraction is unique due to the fact it sits over the Atlantic Ocean and boasts sweeping views of the Atlantic City skyline. Riders will be able to gaze outside the gondola windows at the glistening Atlantic Ocean and the towering buildings and casinos that line the Boardwalk.
