Six Flags Great Adventure announced today that its highly-anticipated Jersey Devil Coaster will debut to the public on Sunday, June 13.
Jersey Devil Coaster will rank as the world’s tallest, fastest and longest single rail coaster—towering 13 stories, flying at speeds up to 58 miles-per-hour, and propelling riders single file through the dark and foreboding woods over 3,000 feet of track.
It is inspired by the infamous New Jersey mythology, the cutting-edge coaster will feature five intense elements, including three dramatic inversions.
“Jersey Devil folklore has been a source of fear and intrigue here in the Pine Barrens for more than 200 years. We’ll immerse riders in this iconic piece of New Jersey history on our monstrous, new scream machine,” said Park President John Winkler in a press statement. “Jersey Devil Coaster is the perfect addition to our unrivaled collection of award-winning, innovative, and thrilling roller coasters.”
Jersey Devil Coaster is located along the lakefront and riders must meet the 48-inch height requirement. For more information about Jersey Devil Coaster, and this season at Six Flags Great Adventure, visit www.sixflags.com/greatadventure.
