Steel Pier Helicopters
May 2021
We did a city tour with Steel Pier Helicopters. The tour was so much fun. We went over the entire city, bay, and ocean. The tour was about 6-7 minutes. We have been on several helicopter tours all over. This is a very bumpy ride being over the ocean but they have a brand new modern R44 helicopter with a glass cockpit. You are in good hands!

A Movie inspiration

Great classic US fun. It is strange that the Pier Amusement Park gave inspiration to so many parks in so many movies!

Was ok

Went there on a Saturday night. Was way overcrowded. No one was wearing masks. Pier was clean and rides appeared well taken care of. Wish I could say the same for the large crowd that was there. Would definitely go back during a weekday to enjoy the pier more.

Beautiful Ferris Wheel....make your trip fun

Smile and laugh again as you try to win a prize, scream on a ride, or watch your friends and loved ones enjoy the pleasures of the Steel Pier. There is a helicopter ride at the end of the pier - super fun! There is also a cage that is sling shotted into the air! What a feeling!!! Whatever you choose to do....just do it! You will love the memories.

Nasty people. No social distancing. Way overcrowded. People not wearing masks

That sums it up. They say masks are required and even sold at the entrance. Wearing them is not enforced. Way too many people crowded into a tired, scummy place. So ghetto

Lots of simple, nostalgic fun for our kids...
Aug 2020
After avoiding the Steel Pier for a number of years during our visits to Atlantic City, we finally relented to the requests from our kids who had seen the rides from the beach below. And it was exactly what we had anticipated, super expensive for rather simple, common carnival rides. After one or two rides per kid, we wandered off, expecting never to return.

Thankfully, I poked around on the Steel Pier webpage and noticed their Two Ticket Tuesday special, which when combined with purchasing a big batch of ride tickets, allows our kids to enjoy rides at $2 per ride, rather than $6-$9 per ride at full price on other days. That's a game-changer for us.

So, we've now made it a regular routine during our vacations in AC to spend a few hours at the Steel Pier on Tuesday afternoons to allow the kids to jump around from ride to ride. From ages 5-10, they absolutely love it. It's a highlight of the week. The rides are mostly old, rusty, and weathered, but our kids don't care. They have favorites, and they find new favorites each year.

Overall, Steel Pier is crowded and dirty and overpriced. But it's not terribly unlike any local country fair or small-time amusement park, except it's located on the ocean. I don't think it's worth the expense at full-price, but if you can utilize the deals, it's a great way to spend a few hours with kids without getting sand in your britches.

Reawaken Your Inner Child….

….AND FOR EXISTING KIDS - A GREAT VENUE

Only hardened gamblers avoid the BOARDWALK** at ATLANTIC CITY. And only curmudgeonly 75 yo non-gambling visitors like me will think about avoiding the iconic STEEL PIER fun fair. But l didn’t think about avoiding for long – once the BOARDWALK TROLLEY** pulled up outside and I saw all those bright lights and crowds of people in holiday mode having a good time, I bailed out and joined the revelers.
I thought this the perfect time to relive my youth when I did in fact visit a fun pier or two.
I haven’t seen enough of the opposition to say STEEL PIER is the best fun pier – let’s just say that it seemed to have all the activities and drink/eats/merchandise outlets I associate with such places. Certainly younger people had great smiles – I’d say this is the perfect place to bring your kids or grand-kids.

TIPS
- the pier shuts down at slow times but the WHEEL remains open 7/365.
- be prepared for a line for the WHEEL popular dates (my visit was on the LABOR DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND). I figured it took me about 40 minutes to reach the gondolas.
- ACCESS is OK – towards the northern end of the casino strip on the boardwalk. Lotsa street parkiig and paid lots in the area + casinos have plenty parking. If relying on public transport, the ATLANTIC CITY BUS TERMINAL which gets buses in from all around the coast not to mention interstate, is a 1900 yard walk. If you don’t wanna walk that far (boardwalk itself 650 yards) the boardwalk trams** go by frequently.
