I don't know how much I buy that excuse. How can Casino Pier get a new coaster inspected and approved within a few days after it was completed, yet Playland has seemingly been waiting for its inspection for about a month now? This doesn't pass the smell test for me.

Not exactly sure how we so quickly went from 'we're waiting on a date with the state' to 'this bitch opens in a half hour', but there you have it.

My guess is that it's similar to the situation with Revel/TEN in AC compared to all of the other recent ownership changes in that town (namely Blastien's moves) - the right person isn't greasing the right palms. This is NJ, afterall.

And in related news for coaster whores (but unrelated to Ocean City), it appears that Fantasy Island Amusement Park on Ling Beach Island has removed their powered coaster and replaced it with a SBF Figure Eight spinner

Those restraints honestly look kinda ridiculous

They're almost identical to the Free Spin restraints, and are very comfortable.

 

I don't doubt that but do the bars need to jut out that much?

 

If it greatly reduces any chances of headbanging, why not?

^Not yet, from a comment on their Facebook page i think they said it will be sometime around July?

 

 

Edit - To follow up on my earlier post, I didn't bother checking out the ride today. 60 degrees, overcast, and I didn't feel like fighting the traffic. I'll get to it sometime this summer but a $10 ride isn't worth a trip to OC alone.
