Don't parks usually have insurance for these kinds of things?

Yes, I assume they have insurance for something like this. With any luck, they may just get a better ride out of it.

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.

Always sad to see coasters destroyed like that, even if they were brutal fairground ones. :(

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.

Let me cry about the loss of Star Jet... done.

I think the only thing remotely upsetting is the loss of Stillwalk Manor. Then again, I'm a dark ride fanboy nerd, so I'm probably one of about 7 people upset by the loss.

I also feel bad for Casino Pier - they have to replace a coaster and a log flume as well as the destroyed section of the pier.

Some businesses don't bounce back after stuff like this happens, hopefully their insurance covers them to a degree where they are able o reopen.
