USA: Devilishly Good – “Jersey Devil Coaster” Ready to Ride at Six Flags Great Adventure
As of today, visitors to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey can experience the new “Jersey Devil Coaster”, which is the “tallest, fastest and longest single-rail coaster in the world,” as the park states. The coaster was delivered by Rocky Mountain Construction, is designed according to the local legend of Jersey Devil and features four trains with twelve individual seats each lined up in a row. The around 54 meter-high (180 feet) lift hill carries the trains to the highest point before they hurtle down an 87-degree drop and rush over the 3,000-foot (914-meter) track with more than 53 mph (90 km/h).
Numerous thrill elements such as an overbanked cutback, a 180-degree stall, a raven dive and a zero-g roll are expected to make the Jersey Devil Coaster an adrenalin-infused ride experience. Riders must be at least 120 centimeters (48 inches) tall. (eap)
