I only had one ride on Canyon River Rapids but remember it having a little of everything- good rapids, unavoidable waterfalls, and geysers. I was bummed that it was a casualty for the water park but from what I've seen, it looks like the Boardwalk is a bigger draw.

It has to be some version of a water coaster at this point, there aren't any other options. Now to just see what kind. I'm leaning towards Intamin.

Unless they pull a fast one on us and count an uphill water slide (like a ProSlide Rocket or similar) as a coaster.

Something worth noting...between East Coast Waterworks and Coastline Plunge (but ignoring the kiddie slides that are part of Sandcastle Cove), the Boardwalk also has exactly 13 slides.

If this is in fact a water coaster that will be awesome. It might have insane lines since the boardwalk has literally one slide tower. I will be happy to have another nice water coaster on the east coast in the Mid-Atlantic area since currently it seems like the only one is the one at Ocean City in the Jolly Roger waterpark. I suppose you could also count RIverRush at Splash Country but I don't think of that as Mid-Atlantic.
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.
