Jersey Devil Coaster is a steel single rail roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey, USA. Manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction, it was initially set to open in 2020, but the opening was delayed to June 13, 2021. It is the first custom-made RMC Raptor Track, as well as the world's tallest, fastest, and longest single-rail roller coaster.
On August 29, 2019, it was announced that Jersey Devil Coaster would be coming to Six Flags Great Adventure.
The ride's first concrete footers were poured in November 2019. The 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. Construction work resumed in December 2020. This was followed by the coaster's layout completion on January 25, 2021, with the topping off of the lift hill. Testing began in May.
Jersey Devil Coaster soft opened to members and press holders on June 9, 2021 and opened to the general public on June 13.
Both Jersey Devil Coaster and Stunt Pilot at Silverwood were closed in July 2021 so that Rocky Mountain Construction could perform an inspection on their second generation single rail coasters. The attraction would constantly break down due to the often downtime. It would once again close on August 6, 2021.
A single rider entrance was added for the 2022 season.
Jersey Devil Coaster is a custom Raptor Track manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction. It is 130 feet tall, has a drop of 122 feet and reaches speeds of up to 58 mph and is 3,000 feet long, as well as having 3 inversions and 12 airtime moments.
4 trains with 12 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged inline in a single row, for a total of 12 riders per train.
