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.

Not exactly sure how we so quickly went from 'we're waiting on a date with the state' to 'this bitch opens in a half hour', but there you have it.

Oh, holy crap! Maybe I'll shoot down there on Monday to give it a try. I'm gonna be in Mays Landing visiting family anyway.

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.

Glad to hear the park finally got this coaster open after all of the headaches. I'm interested to see reviews how it rides relative to the SkyRocket II in particular.

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
