Would you have done what this teen did? When you hear about the Jersey Shore, you probably think of Snooki, Pauly D and the gang, right? Well, it's not just a hot mess meet-up location, it is an actual tourist attraction too with awesome food, games and carnival rides.

For one 17-year-old birthday girl, her b-day bash was interrupted when Mother Nature came roaring through the shore while she was on the Sky Ride at the Casino Pier amusement park.
