Lucky Leo's arcade is a Seaside Heights staple. This landmark, like many, were nearly devastated by Sandy. It's only been a month and a half since landfall and Lucky's is already back open for fun. The before and after photos are unreal.

This was the scene on the boards in Seaside Heights after Sandy ravaged the town. Sand and debris block the entrance of the arcade as cleanup plans began. Everyone knew this was going to be no easy task.

From shoveling to sweeping, it was quite a task cleaning the arcade (photo:
Even the Wheel of Fortune games were no match for Sandy. There was water and sand everywhere. (photo:

After 'round the clock efforts from many, Lucky Leo's is open and ready to house the fun we have all come to enjoy.

Lucky Leo's isn't the only Seaside Heights establishment back in operation. Check out The Beachcomber, Riggs, One of a Kind and Ryan's Deli.

Visitors to Seaside are allowed over the bridge between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.

While Seaside Park remains closed to the public and there is a lot of work still to be done, seeing Lucky's and others in operation gives us hope that much of the Heights and boardwalk will be all ready for another summer in 2013.
