High atop the Seaside Heights boardwalk, a new roller coaster stands at 131 feet tall.

Crews began working on the roller coaster recently and by Monday, used a crane to lift the main slope of the future thrill ride onto the new, expanded portion of Casino Pier.

A Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter, the new coaster has a 72-foot and a 97 degree drop, which tracks at 45 mp.h.
