SEASIDE HEIGHTS - The iconic Casino Pier amusement park reopened to the public today.

The opening signals the start of the season as well as a milestone, since the pier was destroyed during Superstorm Sandy. A few months after Sandy, a fire took out a whole other section of the boardwalk.

Director of operations Lou Cirigliano says it was never a question of if they were going to rebuild, but when.

Among the 16 rides that will be up and running, Air Race and Jump Around are the biggest attractions. Coming back into service this year is the crowd favorite, Skyscraper.

Businesses are hoping to take advantage of the first full tourist season since 2012 and bring in some much-needed revenue.
