Atlantic City is in for a wild ride. The city's first Polercoaster, a 350-foot-tall vertical rollercoaster attraction, was approved on Friday by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA). Joshua Wallack of Wallack Holdings is the Florida developer behind the planned 52,000-square-foot Polercoaster, which sits on the former Sands Atlantic City casino-hotel. In addition to the rollercoaster, the development will include a food court, bar and restaurant, retail, lockers, video games, and office spaces, according to the CRDA press release. Wallace told the Philadelphia Business Journal in November that he hoped to break ground early next year.
So what exactly can we expect from the Polercoaster ride? Here's a video rendering of the Skyscraper, the world's tallest roller coaster and drop tower in Orlando.
