I will immediately become the best coaster on the Jersey Shore. Looks fun, I hope that it will be comparable to Sky Rocket since I love Sky Rocket.

As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

I always thought ocean city's first "real" coaster would go to Gillian's and I never thought it would be a launch. I can't wait to check this out.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Yesssssss. I needed a good reason to make a third trip to the Wildwood beach ultimate tournament next summer, this and playing a few of those boardwalk mini golf courses are a great one.

Just boarded the hype train... This may beat out Sky Rocket II! I might try to visit if I can, since it looks absolutely stunning!

Agreed. Sky Rocket is a great "little" ride, and something like Gale Force looks like a good ride for a small park without a lot of space to spare.

It looks so messed up in the best possible way. A great addition for a Jersey Shore park. It'll be on my radar for the next time I'm in that area!

It'll be kind of sad because I believe that it means that the Python and the Flitzer will be removed to do so. I've seen them for sale on intermarketridegroup.com and italintl.com and a few others (overpriced by the way) and I thought that that meant that either Playland was closing, which would have been sad, or they were getting a big new ride, which it looks like they went with door number two. It looks awesome! That one roll type thing at the top looks insane. :b

I saw this on youtube in the comments and some person said this and it perfectly sums up this coaster, "go home roller coaster, you're drunk." :)

As Intimidator305 mentioned, they were sold already. Besides, Morey's still maintains its Flitzer after all these years and the thing runs great and that's 30 minutes south, and is anyone really going to miss a Painfari looper!? Gale Force is a huge upgrade and a big move for this park. I'm stoked!

^Yeah, I have trouble getting worked up over the potential loss of an old Pinfari ride.
