Six Flags Great Adventure Announces Opening of Triple World Record-Shattering ‘Jersey Devil Coaster’
World’s Tallest, Fastest, and Longest Single-Rail Coaster to Debut June 13
JACKSON, N.J. ─ June 10, 2021 ─ Six Flags Great Adventure, the World’s Ultimate Thrill Park, today announced that its highly-anticipated Jersey Devil Coaster will preview to press June 10 and debut to the public 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. Inspired by infamous New Jersey mythology, the cutting-edge coaster will feature five intense elements, including three dramatic inversions.
Legend says the Jersey Devil has haunted the Pine Barrens for centuries, soaring stealthily through the woods in the dark of night before attacking its prey. Modern-day folklore places this beast near the theme park’s Great Lake, with its menacing, curled horns manifesting under a full moon.
“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. “Jersey Devil Coaster is the perfect addition to our unrivaled collection of award-winning, innovative, and thrilling roller coasters.”
The Jersey Devil Coaster includes the following key features:
With dark, New Jersey folklore at the heart of this new ride, some are questioning whether the ride’s statistics were planned, mere coincidence, or rooted in something more sinister.
The Jersey Devil was the cursed 13th child of Mother Leeds
Folklore buffs will enjoy finding the historical “Easter eggs” that Six Flags designers incorporated into the Jersey Devil’s entrance and queue design.
Riders must meet the 48-inch height requirement. Jersey Devil Coaster is located along the lakefront near Safari Kids and Congo Rapids. A new Jersey Devil BBQ restaurant is located across from the ride’s entrance.
Six Flags Members and Season Pass holders will enjoy an exclusive preview of Jersey Devil Coaster June 11 and 12 prior to the grand opening to the public June 13. For more information about Jersey Devil Coaster, and this season at Six Flags Great Adventure, visit www.sixflags.com/greatadventure

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another update from Six Flags Magic Mountain!
In this update you'll see some more of the deconstruction of Tidal Wave, and also unfortunately the crowds that have descended on the park even though it's still currently only at 35% capacity. In the video below I share some thoughts on this so I won't go into it too much here.

Last Friday I made a quick stop at Six Flags Magic Mountain on my way up to the Bay Area for some coaster fun at Discovery Kingdom and Great America (those updates are coming up over the next couple of days).
Lots of work going on with the 2022 Coaster Project (rumored RMC single rail coaster).
Written by Gregg Condon
I did have to keep reminding myself that this is now the 2022 project, not 2021, even uploaded the video below as 2021 at first. Thanks to the commenters for catching that for me! This is why you don't edit and narrate video at 7am from a hotel room. =)
