Ocean City, New Jersey will offer next year's Summer visitors a high-intensity new thrill at Playland's Castaway Cove, the park has announced.

This news story has some additional details about the ride, and the planning that went into its creation. It also mentions that the park will be adding a second new coaster that will at least partially interact with GaleForce, though they are not giving any details yet.
From the video the ride looks to pack quite a punch, I'm looking forward to trying it out next year!
