Jersey Devil, set to open at Six Flags Great Adventure in 2020, will become the world’s tallest, fastest and longest single rail coaster when it debuts in 2020. It stands 13-stories, and will propel riders at speeds up to 58 mph single file through over 3,000 feet of track, complete with five intense elements including two dramatic inversions.
Featuring four trains of 12 passengers each sitting low and inline style (one rider per row) with their legs straddling either side of the monorail track, the ride starts with a tension-building ascent up a towering, 130-foot lift hill before sending riders flying at speeds up to 58 mph. Three intense elements include a steep 87° first drop, raven dive and overbank cutback.
“Six Flags Great Adventure is home to the best and most innovative roller coasters on the planet, and we are thrilled to expand our unrivaled collection with the Jersey Devil Coaster. Jersey Devil folklore has been a source of fear and intrigue here in the Pine Barrens for more than 200 years, and this iconic piece of New Jersey history inspired the design for this monstrous scream machine,” said Park President John Winkler.
