Gale Force was just ok. I don't know why, but the launch rattles a ton. I haven't had this on any other launched coasters. The restraints are also major ball busters. As far as positives, the first drop gives excellent air. Overall the layout is pretty good but the launch and comfort left something to be desired.

Police in Cape May County are looking for a group of teenagers accused of causing mischief on a popular Jersey Shore boardwalk on two separate occasions.
The Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) released photos from video surveillance and are asking for help in identifying the teens who trespassed at Playland's Castaway Cove amusement park on the Ocean City Boardwalk.
Police said the group entered the park Monday and Wednesday, toppled over two vending machines, turned over half of the park's trash cans, and damaged other property.
If you recognize any of the teens or have any information regarding the case, call the Ocean City Police Department at 609-399-9111.
I'm a few weeks late, but chiming in on everything. The lady and I visited on the 17th -
Wild Waves is open. Yay, I guess. It sucks.
Gale Force is a fun ride with some pretty kickass airtime! However, there's no way in hell I would ever pay $10 to ride it again. It would be perfect for a smaller park that wants something similar to a Sky Rocket II but with more airtime. If I ran into one at a pay-one-price location I'd definitely marathon it. The ride did have one wicked shimmy to it, though, which I found odd. It wasn't rough, just extremely shaky. Kinda gave me a nice butt massage throughout.
Wild Waves was open for you? I was down there last weekend and it was still closed. No great loss anyway.
And yeah, I love Gale Force, easily my favorite of the triple-launched coasters I've been on so far (well... not counting YOLO, I guess, but that's a little different), but yeah that price is a little stifling.
