Star Jet was an E&F Miler Industries sit-down roller coaster located at Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, USA. It was destroyed when Hurricane Sandy struck on October 29, 2012.

HistoryEdit

The Star Jet opened in 2002. It's name was inspired by the Jet Star roller coaster, which previously stood in Star Jet's location.

On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy hit the New Jersey coast and partially destroyed the boardwalk, sending the Star Jet into the Atlantic ocean. About a month after, on November 26, the mayor of Seaside Heights said he had been talking with coast guards about keeping the roller coaster where it was, saying it would be a "great tourist attraction".[1] Shortly after however, the mayor admits that keeping the roller coaster “was not the brightest comment.”

On January 8, 2013, a 38-year old man was arrested for climbing on the remains of the Star Jet. Christopher Angelo supposedly canoed out and climbed to the top of the coaster with three days worth of supplies. He then took out an American flag and placed it on the roller coaster. He said to a news channel that he was trying to raise awareness for shore recovery[2]
