What parks are built on piers? Are they pretty good parks? Think there will be more parks built on piers?
Got a problem with RWB/MS? you've got a problem with me!
I pray that I will never see a Six Flags Conneaut Lake

I have been to paradise pier in Santa Monica. It doesn't have a big ride selection, but the West Coaster gives a good amount of air for its size. They have a Chaos, boardwalk games, and a ferris wheel which gives awsome views.

I'd say half of Indiana Beach is built onto piers. It's a very interesting set-up for an amusement park and can be pretty exciting with ride placements. The parks Yo-Yo swings you over the lake while the 100 ft. sky coaster swing is built right over the lake and you swing over it. It must be a different experience!

There is an interesting park in Japan called Sea Paradise. It is in Yokohama, and it is really more a huge man-made island than a pier. However, it has a coaster that is built off a pier over the water. It is called the Surf Coaster. Go to http://www.seaparadise.co.jp/index2.html
to check it out.

Morey's Piers consists of three separate amusement piers that are constructed over Wildwood's huge beach. The piers have just about every type of ride imaginable! While most of the flat rides are constructed right on the wooden piers, permanent rides such as the coasters and flume are constructed on the beach (with tremendously deep concrete footings) with the piers being built "around" them.
There are other piers in Wildwood, including the defunct Dinosaur Beach/Hunt's Pier & Seaport Village (a shopping center, so to speak), as well as other piers along the Jersey shore. Seaside Heights (further north in NJ) has two piers, and since their beach is much narrower, the piers are mostly built over the Atlantic Ocean. I believe the same is true of the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, and that is a long pier.

Let's not forget Jazzland. It's completely built on piers just mere inches off of the Louisiana bayou.
What is life without ups and downs!?!?
