JACKSON, NJ – The final track piece of Jersey Devil Coaster, the world’s tallest, longest, and fastest single-rail coaster, was placed Monday afternoon (January 25).
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.
All phases will be completed before the first passengers board the ride later this season. An opening date for the coaster has not yet been set.
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.
