Jersey Devil Coaster is an upcoming steel roller coaster located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey. Manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction, the ride will open to the public in the summer of 2020. The roller coaster will be themed to the Jersey Devil, a legendary creature said to have inhabited the nearby Pine Barrens. [2] Upon it's opening, it will be the tallest, fastest, and longest single rail roller coaster in the world.[3]. It will be the park's 14th roller coaster, the most recent being The Joker, which was added in 2016.

History[edit]

Six Flags Great Adventure had begun releasing teasers for their new attraction in the weeks leading up to the announcement. Every other day, the park would release a rhyme that would contain relevant information to the theme, location, and design of the ride. The park also highlighted letters in each of the six clues, eventually scrambling to reveal they spelled "YES RMC", a reference to the manufacturer of the ride, Rocky Mountain Construction. [4]

Ride experience[edit]

The ride begins by exiting the station up the 130 foot chain lift hill. The train then drops down at a 87 degree angle, reaching a maximum speed of 58 mph, as it is followed by a dive loop. After this, it begins a turnaround and slightly banks right into an airtime hill, preceded by a 180 degree zero-g stall. The train approaches a sharp turnaround into a drop, entering its third and final inversion, the zero-g roll, and then up into the rides mid-course brake run. From here, the train drops down into a tight, low to the ground turnaround, and the ride finishes off with a couple of off-axis airtime hills before entering the final brake run.
