That last photo looks sort of like coaster track. I didn't think a theme could be more outrageous than Oscar's Wacky Taxi, but theming a coaster to a boardwalk tram may take the cake.

Sort of? I'd say it's almost confirmed we're getting a new family coaster. The murmurings coming from those I know affiliated w/ Moreys have all been pointing to this. Question now is what company.

I love donkeys more than me.

That mysterious orange Chance coaster?
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

The themeing is fantastic, but that layout seems a bit... meh.

I mean, it's a family coaster. I'm not going in with high thrill expectations. Hopefully it will maintain a low height requirement and become a new "first coaster" for a whole new generation of Wildwood kids.

Also, damn, that theming. I'm not sure it could be any more Wildwood if it tried.

So are Wacky Taxi and Wild Waves and they're both thrilling and family friendly.

It looks similar to a roller skater, but really it's the Wildwood theme that'll make this ride.

Morey's has been knocking it out of the park with names lately. First Wild Whizzer and now Runaway Tram.

Looks also similar to the coaster at bowcraft which is closing. The layout isn’t the same in the photo, but does look similar. Wonder if it’s the same manufacturer?

This was my first thought. It just screams Wildwood. When I think about this place, the first thing that comes to mind is WATCHTHETRAMCARPLEASE! This coaster is perfect.
