ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - A plan to build a 350-foot tall vertical rollercoaster on Atlantic City’s boardwalk has received approval.

The Press of Atlantic City reports (https://bit.ly/1RKSeX7 ) that the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority last week approved the project for a 1-acre lot where the Sands casino once stood.

Florida developer Joshua Wallack says the rollercoaster will also include a nightlife component, including a bar.

Wallack wouldn’t comment on the timeframe to complete his plans, but says he wants to have it open as quickly as possible.
