      Note: Hurricane Sandy (2012) caused extensive damage to this attraction. This entry will be updated as information becomes available.... Seaside Heights Boardwalk offers a mile of delights on two piers, Casino Pier and Funtown Pier. Discover all the standard boardwalk fare and a few surprises: There are carousels, a Ferris wheel, kiddie rides, go-karts, and bumper cars. In addition, there's arcade on top of arcade on top of arcade -- eight in all -- with games of chance and skill where you can win not only stuffed animals but some unusual prizes as well. Or how about a game of mini-golf up on the roof? For thrill seekers there are roller coasters including a looping coaster that lets you watch the ocean waves break right under you, bungee swings, or try the Tower of Fear, a 225-ft drop ride. If you are really brave - and you're not full of pizza, waffle cones or fudge - try The Skyscraper, which takes you up 162 feet in the air at 70 mph on the end of a revolving pole. Or go make a splash at Jenkinson's Breakwater Beach Water Park across the street. During the summer months there are weekly fireworks and outdoor movies, as well as special events (including an annual clown festival) through October. The Funtown Pier will not be rebuilt after the damage from the superstorm Sandy.

        The Seaside Heights boardwalk and piers were heavily damaged by Sandy - almost completely destroyed. Rebuilding plans are not known at this time.
