Casino Pier's Star Jet may remain in the ocean

The remains of a roller coaster that was knocked off a New Jersey amusement pier by Superstorm Sandy and left partly underwater in the Atlantic Ocean might be left there as a tourist attraction. Mayor Bill Akers said officials have yet to decide whether to tear the coaster down.

New for 2014! Star Jet Reanimated! Ride the only rollercoaster in the world that has been destroyed by a Hurricane!

Sounds like a great marketing idea.

Thank you Dave. Hopefully at least some of Star Jet can be saved and reused. "Ride the coaster that survived a huricance". Does anyone know the status on the two Miler mouse rides that in the damaged parks? One was a classic.

I'd be shocked if Miler wanted to touch this coaster now...

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

You have a very loose definition of "survived."

Structurally, I have a hard time believing that anyone would want to re-use pieces of this ride. Would they do some sort of MRI to try and find hidden structural damage, subsurface cracks in the metal? And then assume liability if the re-used sections failed? I'm just not seeing it...

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the coaster is a Krause.

(Swipes hand flat over head.) While I appreciate the attention, for what it's worth, I don't get it. :)
