Does anyone know what happened to the coaster Gillian's Wonderland Pier was supposed to add last year to replace the City Jet? I just checked RCDB and they still have it listed as scheduled to open in 2006. And no name or further info.

I hope it's still coming. It sucks they got rid of the City Jet and got that Wacky Worm in 2005 and now they don't even have an adult coaster.
Combined with Playland getting rid of the Mighty Mouse, Ocean City really seems to be lacking in coasters now especially with Python being down a lot last year (didn't open until at least May and then there are were at least 2 trips I had where it was closed).

I agree...I loved the City Jet and Mighty Mouse. Both classics that are fading away fast. And the unfortunate events that happened to force Gillians to remove the Wild Wonder. I remember that summer...2 great coasters on that pier. Now none...hope whatever was supposed to open last year opens soon, and it's something good. RCDB doesn't seem to have record of any other coasters of that make/model.

I think it will be similar to this but a little smaller as both rides have the same length but Gillian's ride isn't as high: http://www.rcdb.com/id2609.htm
which is listed as a Compact Coaster 47x21
when Gillian's ride is listed Compact Coaster 34x18 with final spiral curve
