Fire crews are hoping to venture inside the burned-out skeleton of Weston-super-Mare's Grand Pier to start searching for the cause of the blaze.
The pier which was first built in 1904 was destroyed on Monday in a fire thought to have started in kitchens.
Avon Fire and Rescue Service said officers would only be allowed into the blackened husk of the pavilion once structural engineers ruled it was safe.
Owner Kerry Michael spent £1m revamping the attraction he bought in February.
The 49-year-old entrepreneur told a press conference on Monday night that the "tragic event" was "truly devastating" as he only regarded himself as a custodian of the attraction for future generations.
Mr Michael, flanked by more than 20 devoted employees whose futures are not known, said "the pier was Weston, Weston was the pier".
He assured local people he would not rest until the pier, which he had kitted out with a go-kart track and bar, was back to its "former glory".
