Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, NJ has announced new rides for the lower deck of the Pier for 2014.
Casino Pier was devasted by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 which caused an estimated $53 billion of damage to the Eastern Seaboard of the US.
The first phase of a longer term rebuilding project at Casino Pier opened on Memorial Day Weekend 2013, with JRA (Jack Rouse Associates) acting as master planners for the project. (See Making Magic Happen: Rebuilding Casino Pier After Hurricane Sandy)
