The first Atlantic City boardwalk was built in 1870, and twelve years later, in 1882, Ocean Pier, the world’s first oceanside amusement pier was constructed. Ocean Pier featured the latest rides and games, as well as an electric trolley system to bring visitors from the boardwalk. Steel Pier followed in 1882, then Million Dollar Pier in 1906, Steeplechase Pier in 1908, and Garden Pier in 1913.
