SEASIDE HEIGHTS - A new ride on Casino Pier in Seaside Heights is attracting a lot of attention for its controversial name - 'Super Storm.'
Casino Pier's marketing manager says the ride was indeed named for Superstorm Sandy, which devastated the area last year and swept the Jet Star roller coaster into the ocean. The new ride is located right in front of the Jet Star's old spot.
Officials say the name was chosen to show the Shore's resilience and strength following the storm. They insist it was not meant to be insulting.
