    Well looky here. I think this is what's replacing the Flitzer at Morey's Piers. Screen-Shot-2018-11-13-at-3.42.14-PM.png
    EDIT: Never mind, RCDB states that this is going on the Surfside pier, not the original Morey's Pier where Flitzer was.

    It kind of looks like a Zierer Force to me.

    It's not a spinner:-

    That guy is kind of over enthusiastic...

    He says a company called JR Associates is manufacturing the ride, but I think the more likely thing is that the ride is a custom Zierer Force, and is being assembled/built by JRA. The train and the track look too similar to a Zierer Force for me to think otherwise.

    I'm sorry for double posting but...

    It is a Zierer Force!

    After doing some digging, it appears that this coaster will be an exact mirror image of Flying Eagle, the Zierer Force coaster that opened at Legoland Billund this year:-

    Video by World of Parks TV.

    EDIT:- Here is the RCDB:-

    https://rcdb.com/16782.htm

    So the known stats are:-
    • Length: 921.8ft
    • Height: 36.1ft
    • Speed: 28.6mph
    I'm unsure how many riders per train this will have because the artwork appears to have 16 passenger trains, yet Flying Eagle has 20 passenger trains, so who knows at this point.
