Jet Star Roller Coaster from Ocean

It was a bittersweet farewell this week to the Jersey shore Jet Star rollercoaster that had become a symbol of Superstorm Sandy.  The rollercoaster partly submerged in the sea sure was a sight to see.  So much so that a local official quoted in this video clip reports that it brought sightseers to Seaside Heights.  There was some discussion of leaving the rollercoaster where it fell, as a tourist attraction.  But those plans were ultimately scrapped in favor of the safety of beachgoers and the environment.  News rumors about the iconic coaster?  The next one might be named “Superstorm.”
