Owners of the Seaside Heights amusement park that was ripped apart by Hurricane Sandy plans this year to replace a ride lost in the storm: the Musik Express.
The ride will be one of three added to the pier's lower deck in 2014, according to Maria Mastoris, the marketing manager for Casino Pier.
"Everyone loves (the Musik Express)," said Mastoris. "They love the DJ, the sounds, the music. I think a lot of people are thrilled about that just as much as we are."
Mastoris said the pier will also have a new ride called the Air Race, which is designed to give thrill seekers the experience of an acrobatic flight, and a ride geared toward younger children called the Jump Around. That ride allows children — and their parents — to take a spin in one of six different four-seat beach buggies.
There won't be a roller coaster this year though.
"We still have to build our upper deck," said Mastoris, "so that would be the only space to actually have a roller coaster."
Casino Pier's Jet Star roller coaster became an iconic symbol of Sandy after the ride plunged into the ocean.
"Lazer Snake Horse On Fire looks too intense for me"
I stopped by Point Pleasant and Seaside Heights this week. I didn't even think to go down and check out the other pier. I think I was more shocked driving down from Point Pleasant to Seaside Heights, You could exactly tell where everything went from being rebuilt to various stages of repair to hasn't been touched since Sandy.
Since zumanjaro's line is taking awhile, even the single rider(which is moving faster than the normal line somehow). Figured I would post some pictures from casino and what's in place of fun time pier. Casino pier got a new air race, some sort of drop ride and moved the kiddie coaster to the back corner of the pier. Besides the bars, fun time is still in repair, dirt(well sand) and they are still working on re planking the boards. There were a few small carnival rides or parts but nothing permanent.
As for six flags nothing surprising, looks like they won't launch kingda ka while zumanjaro is running, otherwise use the single rider queue unless you paid for flash pass.
Having some issues posting directly from my iPhone, will update with images later tonight.
