Impressive addition for Ocean City! Definitely will put them on the map for thrill seekers who usually just drive the extra 30 miles to Wildwood.

Very cool! Combining the elements of a Sky Rocket II with the typical G-fighter. Man, this is a golden age for small thrill coasters. I wish more of the small parks could have lasted to utilize it.

Maybe the best thing about this is that it is an innovation in the ultra-compact "genre" rather than yet another Sky Rocket II clone. Not that the clones are bad, but after about three on the same continent you start to hope for something new.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

Looks awesome!! I wonder if it will be slightly more intense than the Sky Rocket II models since it's more compact.

I remember reading a rumor about 6 months ago that stated two American parks bought launched El Locos for 2016, if it's true I wonder where the 2nd one is going.
1.Skyrush 2.El Toro 3.Fury 325 4.Maverick 5.New Texas Giant 6.Wicked Cyclone 7.Twisted Colossus 8.Superman:TR 9.Millennium Force 10.Apollo's Chariot

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

This looks so much better than the Tempesto/Superman/Phobia rides. I may have a 'reason' to plan another OCNJ trip just to ride this!

I enjoyed this park and loved all of the OCNJ Boardwalk so this might get me back there for the first time since 2012.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

This looks like a nice addition for this small park! I'll be interested to see how it turns out when it opens!

If you are familiar with the piers here is an idea of where its going to go (right where their Flitzer and other small junior coaster is so they may be getting removed)
