And lets be honest here, those rides out on that pier were "cheap" rides. Nothing amazing. Nothing that anyone will lose sleep over. I'm sure most people on this forum are probably hearing about that coaster for the FIRST TIME in this thread!
Trust me, if they have their act together, they'll have a plan for getting everything re-built.

I disagree. I'm HAPPY to see some coasters destroyed!
I'm sure the park would disagree with you there. Yes they probably have insurance, but it's still upsetting. The pier likely won't be rebuilt for quite sometime, and that's going to seriously hurt their business if they fail to catch the 2013 Spring and Summer Crowds.
Yeah this is upsetting to the owners, but I'm pretty sure they have an attack plan in place for when storms like this come in to trash the piers. As long as they aren't in trouble financially, they'll bounce back next year with potentially bigger/better rides.
