^It would've been nice for it to be even slightly longer, but I guess they chose to take a safe route and go for a pre-made (yet slightly modified) layout.
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. :airtime: :airtimer:

Street parking is generally free if you're not in the first 2 blocks so just park wherever you can find a spot.

I know more about donkeys than women!

^ & ^^ thanks for the tips on the free parking, didn't utilize them though as pressed for time. Plan was 7 stops on friday; Bowcraft, Keansburg, I-play, Jenkison's, Casino, Gillian's and Playland Castaway Cove. Unfortunately the scattered t-storms ruined that. We stopped at Bowcraft (closed bc of scattered storms), Keansburg (closed bc of scattered storms), Iplay, jenkinson's and Casino (had to wait 2 hours for storm to go through then pass). On way To Gillian's at 8:30 about to pass AC, saw more lightning south over OC and decided to call it quits. Will now have to accomplish it again this friday.

Hydrus is a great addition for the park. Nice small comapct coaster, good elements and people were eating it up. The pier looks good now and less crowded with rides then it was before. I wonder if they'll add more pier along the boardwalk for future additions?

An old favorite is returning to Casino Pier. Another indoor scrambler returns to the East Coast

Centrifuge Coming Back to Seaside Heights
September 7, 2018

SEASIDE HEIGHTS-Known in local circles as the best ride on the boardwalk to ride after you pounded down a few drinks along the boards or at the clubs, the Centrifuge is coming back.

Once located on the far end of the Casino Pier, which has since been destroyed by Hurricane Sandy and removed, the spinning, twisting ride offered a spectacular light show and music.

… and here is an inside look of what is coming to Casino Pier in Spring 2019! Our awesome indoor scrambler, CENTRIFUGE, that is making a comeback to Casino Pier in Spring 2019! Who is as excited as us?!?

In the 1990’s, the ride gained in popularity as a cult favorite amongst teenagers and twentysomethings. It was at one time one of the more popular rides in Seaside Heights.

The Casino Pier announced the ride will open in 2019.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!
