Six Flags Great Adventure Announces World’s Tallest, Fastest & Longest Single Rail Coaster, Jersey Devil
After weeks of teasing a big announcement, Six Flags Great Adventure just announced plans for the Jersey Devil Coaster, which will debut in 2020. The ride sounds EPIC to us.
So here’s what we know about the ride:
- It will be 13 stories high.
- The ride will reach speeds up to 58 mph.
- The track will be a 3,000 foot of single-rail track.
Park officials say that riders will soar single file through the dark and foreboding woods.
“Six Flags Great Adventure is home to the best and most innovative roller coasters on the planet, and we are thrilled to expand our unrivaled collection with the Jersey Devil Coaster,” Six Flags Great Adventure’s park president John Winkler said in a release.
Park officials say it will open next summer, and it will be located along the park’s lakefront (near Safari Kids and Congo Rapids).
Of course, the new ride is inspired by the most famous resident of the Pine Barrens, the Jersey Devil.
“Jersey Devil folklore has been a source of fear and intrigue here in the Pine Barrens for more than 200 years, and this iconic piece of New Jersey history inspired the design for this monstrous scream machine,” Winkler says.
