TMNT Shellraiser is a steel launched roller coaster located at Nickelodeon Universe American Dream in East Rutherford, New Jersey, USA. It is a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter 1000, which opened on October 25, 2019. It is based on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The shellraiser is a vehicle used by the characters.
Photographs of dark green track at a manufacturing facility were posted online in April 2016. It was subsequently determined that they belonged to a clone of Takabisha. Gerstlauer and Triple Five Group officially revealed this coaster and a spinning coaster in November 2017. A model of the two roller coasters was on display during IAAPA 2017.
Vertical construction of the attraction officially began in early 2018. The name was revealed during the American Coaster Enthusiast's Eastcoaster event on February 2, 2019.
The roller coaster opened with the park on October 25, 2019.
TMNT Shellraiser is a clone of Takabisha at Fuji-Q Highland, but with a slightly steeper drop. It begins with a pre-launch section that includes a heartline roll before going through an LSM launch that launches from 0-62.1 mph in 2 seconds. The second half of the ride begins with a vertical chain lift hill and a beyond vertical drop at an angle of 121.5 degrees, the steepest drop in the world.
The roller coaster is intertwined with Shredder, a Gerstlauer spinning roller coaster.
6 cars. Riders are arranged 4 across in 2 rows, for a total of 8 riders per car. Riders are held in by over-the-shoulder harnesses.
