This ride looks like so much fun, should be a great addition to the park!

Built by S&S based on a Premier design/concept- can't go wrong with that. More often than not, these compact one/two car train eurofighter-esque rides look great, but underwhelm. Verily. I get the feeling this one will break that cycle. Great addition to a seaside park- looking forward to giving it a spin.
Been you to have any spike, man?

Holy crap, I didn't even notice the barrel roll before the final dive. I blame the video's god-awful editing. Awesome!

Won't be missing Flitzer and Python. They have never been world-class coasters, and are (very rough) clones. Python especially (it hurts just to think about it :| ) As someone who visits Ocean City multiple times a year, I must say I'm very, very excited for this addition. Seems like a lot of fun!

There is no such barrel roll on Gale Force, as the layout image posted above on this page, is not Gale Force's layout.

For those of you who doubt my statement, here's a screenshot from the announcement video that shows the entire layout:

^^Is it just me or does anyone else actually see the Barrel Roll (or 540 Corked Roll as they call it) in the video screenshot posted? Because I believe I do, in fact, see the Corked Roll right before the final dive.

EDIT: Nevermind, it is a bit off. Its more of a roll right into the Raven Turn.

This is my super lame signature where I will mention the words "roller coaster" and "theme park"

The layout in the video still is much different than the image posted with the stats... so which is it?

I much prefer the image with the layout and stats to what I see in the animation. Both are huge winners though. :airtimer:

Hmm... I wonder which layout is correct. The one with the "Gale Force" logo that was taken from the announcement video, or the one with the "S&S" logo with no mention or indication that it is Gale Force.

Hmm...................
