What's interesting about this though is that it looks like they're also taking apart Doo Wopper. That's probably part of winter maintenance but I wonder if its possibly due to a move. It wouldn't be the first time they've moved it (it used to be where Screaming Swing was on Adventure Pier). Not to fuel the rumor flames (oh who am I kidding I totally am) there is some chatter from somewhat reliable sources of a new family coaster coming (next year? 2020?), and there's never been any rhyme or reason to Moreys announcements for new attractions so it's possible it could still be for next year (doubtful imo though). Noteworthy: according to my sources the new coaster WON'T be the pier-to-pier woodie.
That's great. They really do their Ferris wheel right.
As for the video, I literally loled when that guy with that face on a video about Wildwood said his name is Joey. Of course it is. If he'd have said his name was Brad, I'd be like, "Nah, Joey, we know who you are "
Doo Wopper is down. The basketball game near Nor'easter is gone. Flitzer is gone and kiddie rides around it are gone. Other than Flitzer this could be for maintenance purposes but my gut tells me Moreys is shuffling and making room for something.

Unless they're building on the beach, they would have to move Dante, Rock N Roll and possibly even IT for the lift/first drop to fit. The Flitzer/Doo Wopper area doesn't seem like it would be affected if they were pulling the trigger.
Theoretically they could alter the layout to have the station by Doo Wopper and the lift on the other side of the pier. Maybe they're looking into doing that? On Google Maps, it looks like the edge of Doo Wopper is about in line with the Great Nor'Easter's station, where that artwork positioned the GCI's station.
