Unfortunately, this Casino Pier roller coaster will be remembered more for its demise than its ride experience. The Star Jet fell victim to Hurricane Sandy on October 29, 2012. After the hurricane what was left was a roller coaster standing just off-short in the the Atlantic Ocean. Photos of the roller coaster, partially submerged in water, were shown on news outlets around the world. Eventually removed, the Star Jet stood for awhile as an iconic reminder of the destruction caused by this hurricane.

Casino Pier acquired the Star Jet to replace the original Schwarzkopf Jet Star roller coaster in 2002. This Miler "triple out and back" steel coaster featured a 45-foot initial drop and speeds reaching 40 miles-per-hour.
