Jersey Devil Coaster topped off January 25
JACKSON, NJ – January 26, 2021 – The final track piece of Jersey Devil Coaster, the world’s tallest, longest, and fastest single-rail coaster, was placed yesterday afternoon. This “topping off” 130 feet in the sky marks the completion of track construction on Six Flags Great Adventure’s highly-anticipated scream machine, which is set to open in 2021.
Iron workers from TCN & Co, the ride’s erection company which is based in Marlton, New Jersey, along with the ride’s manufacturer and Six Flags project supervisor, signed the final piece of orange steel before it ascended to its final resting place atop the extreme, 87-degree, vertical drop.
Following the topping off, construction, maintenance, and engineering teams will focus on:
Towering 13 stories, at speeds up to 58 mph, Jersey Devil Coaster riders will soar 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.
Key features of the Jersey Devil Coaster include:
· Four sleek trains of 12 passengers each sitting low and inline style (one rider per row) with their legs straddling either side of the monorail track;
· 3,000 feet of soaring, single-rail, I-beam track;
· Tension-building ascent up a towering, 130-foot lift hill;
· Flying at speeds up to 58 mph;
· Intense elements including a steep 87-degree first drop and overbank cutback; and
· Three dramatic inversions including a 180-degree stall, raven dive, and zero-gravity roll.
