MUNICH, GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 22: The ferris wheel and a rollercoaster are pictured at the opening day of the 2018 Oktoberfest beer festival on September 22, 2018 in Munich, Germany. The Oktoberfest lasts until October 7 and is the world's largest beer festival. The beer festival typically draws over six million visitors.

Two rollercoasters are coming to Steel Pier! The Atlantic City amusement park known for “1,000 Feet of Fresh Air Adventure & Over-the-Ocean Outdoor Fun” will be having two new rides within the next three years.

The announcement was made by the theme park ride manufacturer Premier Rides at this week’s International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions annual expo. The expo was held from Nov. 15 to Nov. 18 in Orlando, Florida.

The New Jersey region of American Coaster Enthusiasts posted to their Facebook page on Friday (Nov. 18) about the new additions coming to Steel Pier. “A new Crazy Mouse will replace the original Reverchon model, which first opened in 1997 as North America’s first spinning coaster in modern times; and the latest installation of Premier’s popular Sky Rocket II will also appear on the pier. The rides will debut in 2024 and 2025, respectively,” the post read.

Names and exact opening dates for the two new rides at Steel Pier have not yet been announced.
