Helicopter rides are also available and a full service restaurant is on site.
Visited Daytona Beach in April 2011. The Daytona Pier is currently closed for renovations (April 2011). Looks like it will be a very cool place to hang out and eat. They're redoing the whole restaurant.
the pier is a great place to vist. It needs a little work and the food is a little pricey. But other then that it is great.i remember coming up on the pier and being greeted by one of the workers at the ride. Such a nice young man and such great manners he had.we spent two and a half weeks there in daytona and we came back the last day of the trip and the same young man greeted us again but instead of at the gate he was are waiter.they all had such good manners. My family and myself well deffently be back again next year.

My family and I have been spending our summer vacations in Daytona for the past several years. The hurricane seasons have not been good to the Main Street Pier. The last two years the Pier has been in desperate need of cosmetic and constructional improvements. They still have a nice restaurant and offer fishing bait, etc, however, the town should invest some money in improving the overall appearance of the pier. The town does make money off tourists, they should re-invest that money into what tourist want to see.
i met my husband at the main street pier in 2003. We spent many nights sitting on the pier listening to the ocean, it is a beautiful place to see sting-ray and sharks. Something a midwest girl had never seen before. The most beautiful thing i have ever seen off the pier is the "blue tide" it was breath taking. I found the love of my life at the pier so for me it will always have a piece of my heart. i have heard over the years that many couples have found love at the pier through a summer of waitressing. I wish we could have been married there.
I agree with the comments about it going downhill. But, you still get the 1950's nostalgia here. Everything is run down and the rides are pretty much carnival type rides (run by carnies)... aka - wouldn't trust them. But, it's typical boardwalk fare along the beach. Crowd gets a little rough after dark so think twice before bringing small/impressionable children there.
The Main Street Pier is a piece of Americana unchanged in nearly 100 years. The skyride is truly awesome, but if you have any fear of heights, sudden movements, or falling, I wouldn't recommend it!
The Pier has seen better days, but it is obvious that the city is trying to improve it. The arcades and shops in the area seem as though they would have fit there just as well in 1950 as in 2007, but that adds to the charm.
All in all, it is a great place to walk, take the kids, or just enjoy the atmosphere that is Daytona Beach!
