    The Wheel!!
    Came here at night with my family and had fun. The Wheel is a must if visiting AC for the first time. Otherwise, the rest of the rides and games average - much like a local carnival. Tickets costed more than they should but kids had fun and it's something to do. They do have a banner about a new roller coaster opening next year, so I'm anxious to come back for that.

    Old and Tired.
    Old and not in a good way. Whole pier looks tired and in need of major renovation. (I see new roller coaster is on its way next year) Rides not evenly spaced out for kids of all ages. Good for the little ones. We went at night during the air show week and the pier was empty. Pretty sad. Used to be a huge draw for the families. Now its entrance is overrun by homeless and middle-aged drunks smoking. Walked in and out in less than 15 minutes.

    A fun evening watching people
    The Steel Pier has so many activities for all ages. You can even get a five-minute helicopter ride of the view for a fee. They have rides with some thrilling sensations. They have the typical things they usually have at an amusement park: a Ferris wheel, bumping cars, and the famous pirate boat. It was a pleasant evening for our family.

    Amusing Pier
    We visited Atlantic City in early September so our visit to the famous Steel Pier amusements was a little late as some of the rides and attractions were closing for the season. However, many were still open including the big wheel which provided amazing views of the shoreline, boardwalk and city beyond. At night we dined at a restaurant nearby along the boardwalk and enjoyed the lights of the pier attractions lit up.

Small amusement park. Rides for young children however the ticket prices didn’t quite match the amount of time per ride. Inconsistent on that was a bit disappointing. No music on the carousel ride. For the 50 or so tickets we had the kids had fun, but we’re ready to go.

I can never visit the Atlantic City Boardwalk without stopping by the pier! I have been going since I was a child and now my children enjoy it. There are your typical carnival/fair rides and attractions, foods and it is all overlooking the Atlantic ocean. You can purchase tickets for all the rides.They also have a helicopter ride and a slingshot which I would never have the guts to try lol. Those cost extra. We can't wait to visit again!

Good old-fashioned games & rides. Took me back to when I was a child and would go to the local and state fairs. Not for the faint of heart as it can be quite overwhelming and loud for some people and children. There is a beautiful ferris wheel. If you want some "nostalgia" then this is the place for you!

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.

The Steel Pier Amusement Park is an Atlantic City Tradition. The colorful Ferris wheel lights up the boardwalk.

Thank god Steel Pier exists, as there is not much else for the kids to do in Atlantic City. They have a good mix of rides for little kids and many "thrill" rides. My son loves the little bumper cars that he is able to drive alone. One thing that throws me off is the height requirements. They seem quite high. Many rides that my son can ride in nearby Ocean City, he is not tall enough to ride at Steel Pier. We bought a groupon Voucher for 80 tickets for 30$ and we had enough tickets for multiple rides over 2 different trips and we still have a few left over!

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
