Take a Ride on the Iconic Star Jet Roller Coaster Once Again

After Superstorm Sandy had left her path of destruction, one Seaside Heights landmark barely held on as the vicious waters surrounded the structure. Now you can ride the Star Jet once again.

The Star Jet roller coaster ended up being the media’s post-Sandy go-to image when it came to what was left in Seaside Heights. Admittedly, the sight of the twisted metal tracks was dramatic.

I grew up in Toms River and Seaside was a very popular destination growing up. We went to the beach in the Park during the day and went to the boardwalk in the Heights at night. The Star Jet wasn’t the best roller coaster, but it was our coaster. It was unique and had character. Thinking back to the part of the ride that went right over the ocean still gives me goosebumps.

I stumbled upon this video of some one who sat in the first car of the coaster and recorded their POV video of the experience. This brought back so many memories.

If you were lucky enough to ride Star Jet, enjoy this video. If you never did, here’s a little taste of the one-of-a-kind coaster.
