It’s never too early to start planning next year’s summer vacation — especially when a boardwalk roller coaster is on the horizon.

Playland’s Castaway Cove in Ocean City, New Jersey, has announced plans to build a roller coaster. Called GaleForce, the new ride will rise 125 feet above the Ocean City Boardwalk.
