Atlantic City's Steel Pier's Main Attraction to Open in July


After repeated delays for nearly three years, progress has been made on a highly anticipated attraction at Atlantic City's Steel Pier.

After restructuring a loan, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority says the pier's observation wheel should start spinning by July 4th, of 2017. However, the pier's president hopes to see the gears turning on the 200-foot wheel as soon as Memorial Day of next year.

The 42-car-climate-controlled attraction was made in Italy and has been delayed repeatedly since plans were first announced in 2013.
