We're creating a beautiful new Main Entrance to welcome visitors, with a lot of fun improvements in the area between Neptune's Kingdom and Speed Bumps.
The 65' Shockwave holds 24 riders on individual motorcycle-style seats facing outward around a large disk. The disc spins, while also rocking riders back and forth on a curling, wave-shaped track. Shockwave will be located next to the Undertow roller coaster on an expanded upper deck overlooking the new Main Entrance. Known in the amusement industry as a Mega Disk'O, the ride is manufactured by Zamperla.
Typhoon swings riders upside-down on two spinning arms, reaching a height of 60' over the Boardwalk. The classic thrill ride will be located just inside the new Main Entrance, providing an exciting visual for guests entering the park. Manufactured by A.R.M., the new double-arm ride is similar to a former Boardwalk ride (also called Typhoon) which was replaced by Sea Swings in 2009.
An all new FRIGHT WALK with more scare space and a hauntingly fantastic new entrance!
The Boardwalk's popular walk-through attraction is being relocated "under the Boardwalk" and upgraded with additional scares and more square footage. Fright Walk's spooktacular makeover will impress the bravest thrill-seekers with new high-tech surprises and some good old-fashioned frights.
A real test of balance and agility. Avoid touching the glowing laser beams as you make your way under, over, and through the tricky maze to the finish while friends track your progress then try to beat your score.
Some Rides and Attractions in the construction zone will be closed during construction.
Most rides will not be affected by the construction project. Double Shot and Pirate Ship will close September 6 and reopen in the Spring.
More information will be available in the coming months. Sign up for our monthly newsletter to learn the latest news.
Boardwalk events will all proceed as normal during construction. There will be a minor detour around the construction area.
We expect all construction to be complete by Summer, 2017.
