Workers have removed a Ferris wheel from a New Jersey amusement park that was damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

The ride was one of the last symbols standing of FunTown Pier in Seaside Heights. The park's owner estimated 90 percent of his 33 rides were lost in the storm.

The Asbury Park Press reports workers on Thursday cut the Ferris wheel apart and carried the pieces across the pier.

FunTown owner Bill Majors has said the park likely won't reopen until 2014.

Officials of the neighboring Casino Pier plan to partially reopen the amusement park this summer. Their iconic damaged roller coaster is, however, set to be removed.
