Funtown Pier suffered a double whammy. On October 29, 2012 most of the pier's rides were damaged or destroyed when Superstorm Sandy hit the Jersey coastline. Making matters worse, a fire on September 12, 2013 destroyed what was left of the pier and eight blocks of the boardwalk. The owner is hoping to rebuild Funtown Pier, but the residents are against it.

Formerly located at Boardwalk and Porter Avenue in Seaside Park was this amusement park pier on the Jersey Shore. Funtown Amusement Pier had for more than 77 years used the ocean view as the backdrop for its collection of amusement rides and attractions. Thrill-seekers could ride a looping roller coaster over the ocean waves breaking beneath or board a 225-foot tall freefall ride named Tower of Fear. Funtown Amusement Pier's Giant Wheel afforded riders breathtaking views of the surrounding beach and New Jersey shoreline. The park also had a large collection of kiddie and family rides. During the summer months a Fireworks display would light up the sky every Wednesday night.
