Casino Pier Announces First New Ride for Summer 2014!

Air Race comes to Casino Pier!

Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, NJ is thrilled to announce the first new addition to the property for 2014.  The Air Race, an acrobatic airplane flight, will make its first appearance this summer on the lower deck of the Pier.

Air Race is manufactured by Zamperla, a worldwide amusement ride company.  Air Race takes riders on an amazing journey, replicating the experiences and sensations of an acrobatic airplane flight, with banks, loops, dives and weightlessness that will test even the most experienced thrill seekers.  The ride can accommodate up to 16 riders at one time in eight, two-seated airplanes.  This thriller combines a 6 rpm central ride rotation motion with a motor driven arm rotation that allows for the various movements experienced by riders.  The experience takes place up to 25 feet above the ground and riders experience accelerations of almost 3G, right side up and upside down.  Air Race is for riders over 48 inches.

In addition to the amazing “flying” experience, the visual impact of the Air Race is something not to be missed.  The sight will draw attention to the ride from everywhere along the beach and boardwalk.  The impressive size of the whole structure is sure to attract those wishing to test their nerves as well as those simply mesmerized by the speed and movement of the attraction.
