Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey is debuting on the Jersey Devil roller coaster on Sunday, June 13th. As indicated by the park’s official website, the ride hits speeds of almost 60 miles each hour and stretches for almost 3,000 feet. This is the world’s tallest, fastest, and longest single rail coaster.
As theme parks across the country are getting ready to completely reopen this mid-year, one park in New Jersey is wanting to make a major sprinkle this season. In the wake of declaring the ride before the pandemic began, this park is prepared to release a ride that is allegedly the world’s tallest single-rail roller coaster.
Reporters recently detailed that plans for the ride were first reported in August 2019, however, the attraction’s scheduled opening for summer 2020 was deferred because a few parts couldn’t be produced due to the coronavirus pandemic.
While the last piece of orange track was laid into place in January of this current year, there was even more work to be done before the Jersey Devil could open to the public. At the time of the report, a link lift, ride station, ride controls, and train cars actually should be installed, in addition to testing and inspections.
As indicated by the park’s website, the coaster is depicted, “The world’s tallest, fastest, and longest single rail coaster, Jersey Devil Coaster, will debut Sunday, June 13.
