Mayor Considering Leaving Roller Coaster Submerged by Sandy as “Tourist Attraction”

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NJ — The remains of a roller coaster that was knocked off a New Jersey amusement pier by Superstorm Sandy and partially submerged in the Atlantic Ocean may be left there as a tourist attraction.

Seaside Heights Mayor Bill Akers tells WNBC-TV in New York that officials have not made a decision on whether to tear down the coaster. But the mayor says he’s working with the Coast Guard to see if the coaster is stable enough to leave it alone, because he believes it would make “a great tourist attraction.”

Meanwhile, efforts to rebuild the storm-ravaged town are continuing.

Demolition crews have removed the resort’s damaged boardwalk. And Akers says construction on a new boardwalk should begin in January and be ready by Memorial Day.
