History

On August 29, 2019, it was announced that Jersey Devil Coaster would be coming to Six Flags Great Adventure.[1]

The ride's first concrete footers were poured in November 2019. Supports began to be erected in March, and two assembled trains arrived at the park.

In April 2020, the dive loop, hill, zero-g stall, turnaround and zero-g roll had been installed.

On June 30, 2020, the park confirmed that the attraction would be delayed to 2021, stating this was due to delays in construction caused by the coronavirus pandemic.[2] Construction work resumed in December 2020.[3] This was followed by the coaster's trackwork completion on January 25, 2021, with the topping off of the lift hill.[4] Testing began in May.[5]
