Clacton Pier is a seaside pier in England, UK.
History[edit | edit source]
In the 1930s a roller coaster was constructed on the pier called Steel Stella. The ride was a big success and remained at the pier until the 1970s when a fire in the lift house caused severe damage which resulted in the closure and subsequent demolition of the ride.
Since then the pier has been home to a Vekoma Whirlwind coaster and a number of smaller coasters. In 2011, the current owners installed Stellas Revenge, an Interpark roller coaster relocated from a closed park.
