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.

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
