According to a Reddit post, this currently has no track:
This is just really weird. I don't know what else to say...
Some could call this project a bit of a GaleFarce...
I find it kind of amusing that the same company that builds massive, technologically complex rides like 4th Dimension coasters and the air-compressed launc coasters can't get this right.
I am assuming this could take the same route ringracer took after... 4 days of operation?
The new track has arrived:-
About half of the ride track has returned:-

I am guessing this is costing S&S-Sansei-Vekoma-whatever a lot of money. Good to see a park not giving up on such a special project.
According to Screamscape, Galeforce Reopened a few weeks ago.
Oh, yeah, this is still a thing.
Here's a rider cam video of the "new" ride featuring a familiar face
Shame it doesn't have lap bars.
The real question though: did they use the exact track for reconstruction? If not, then it'd be a different cred!
Actually there are 2 familiar faces.
I don't know whether it's the video, but it still looks kinda rattly to me... probably the video, though.
Daviddoc and I did this a couple of weeks ago on our trip. It was really smooth and we both loved it, it was a nice surprise! Great use of space!
Besides the re-tracking, it also looks to have been reprofiled slightly as well. Here are the 2 different POVs, comparing the old with the new.
Yeah, the new one appears to be much smoother.
Can't wait to see how next year's version turns out!
