Steel Pier

Atlantic City, New Jersey

Steel Pier is a historic amusement pier located on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in New Jersey.

The pier dates back to its opening on June 18, 1898 and quickly become famous for hosting some of the world's top entertainers. For one admission price, visitors could enjoy every concert, film and attraction offered. Many Big Bands began their rise to fame on Steel Pier. Unfortunately, after years of decline the glory of Steel Pier faded into the past and the pier closed in 1976 and a fire destroyed the Jersey Shore landmark in 1982.

After the devastation Donald Trump's Taj Mahal rebuilt the Atlantic City pier with steel and concrete and in 1993 the Catanoso brothers, along with their partners Taft Johnson and Edward Olwell reopened the attraction with 14 rides and the world famous – Diving Horse – animal act.

Steel Pier today is an amusement pier with rides and attractions that appeal to families with children and teens. The pier offers 21 rides, including two roller coasters and a Giant Wheel, live entertainment, games of chance, a food court, stores selling souvenirs and more. Admission to the pier is free and rides are priced on a pay-as-you-go basis.

The owners have recently started a multi-year project to enhance Steel Pier. The newest attraction is the Diving Bell Biergarten, offering live music and the best views in Atlantic City.
