In Ocean City, New Jersey beach-goers will have more than just the waves and warm sun to look forward to. Playland’s Castaway Cove is set to open a compact looping roller coaster called GaleForce. It’ll feature three launches a top speed of 64 mph, a height of 125 feet, and a beyond vertical 100 degree drop. The ride was originally scheduled to open in 2016, but according to the park’s Facebook page, current plans are that it’ll open on Easter 2017. Check with the park before planning your visit.
What to Expect: A Fast Twisted Action-Packed Ride
While GaleForce will have a relatively small footprint, it’ll pack a lot of excitement with speed, twists, and turns. If you have a moment to catch your breath, you might notice a great, but brief view of the ocean. The ultra-steep drop will really challenge riders’ stomach and the launches will provide some strong g-forces. The only drawback might be long lines as the ride only has one car carrying 12 riders. So, expect a decent to insanely long line. Hopefully, if you invest the time to wait on GaleForce, you won’t be disappointed.
