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


Or you could just answer my question without being sarcastic. :roll:

Anyways, I prefer the S&S rendering over the layout in the announcement video but both are much more than I would've expected from this park or any park in that area.

Adding to my 2016 trip itinerary!!! :lover:

RCDB.com says that there is another coaster coming to this park along with Gale Force. "Few details on this second roller coaster have been released other than it said to wrap around the new for 2016 "GaleForce". The stating this as a steel, sit-down roller coaster above is just default settings and not to be considered accurate until the park provides more details."

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

Guys, there's no point to argue, but based on what I've seen the ride video is the actual final layout. The concept art is old. It looks great though, so many flips and insane airtime moments into and out of those flips :)

Also the trains/restraints look like the ones on Batman at SFFT...which I absolutely love so I hope this is the case.

Those restraints do look comfortable. I think this will be the most anticipated roller coaster on the East Coast. I hope I can get out and ride it at some point.

The 540 is not in GaleForce.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

My vote is a Vekoma Roller Skater. Or maybe it's another S&S of sorts, maybe one of their mine train concept.

Good to the last drop

I am so excited to see two compact electromagnetic coasters coming to the east coast next year! I loved Tempesto and Gale Force looks even better! Between this and Phobia I already have two coasters within a 5 mile radius that are already quite thrilling and we haven't even gotten to the "big park's" announcements yet!

It's just great in general to see a better quality of coaster coming to seaside parks like Iron Shark and now GF.

Edit: pkdcoaster, Flitzer and Python are both still operating (Python kind of hurts so brace yourself...) Get those credits quick, they will both removed for Gale Force and the unknown coaster project for 2016. (which speculation seems to indicate will encompass the very vertical footprint of Gale Force)

My first thought is someone at S&S has SERIOUS Sky Rocket II envy, got drunk one night, and woke up with a hangover and a rough design of this. It looks incredible and will hopefully bring some new coaster life to the Jersey shore.
Something clever or funny should go here.
