It looks awesome..... I just hope it doesn’t block the view too much from the front row rider. 


Really don’t think it will at all. The mouth is right down too the track practically.

Forum,   I am catching up on site maps at a very reasonable pace. After being a month behind, I am caught up to February 23rd as of early this morning. The current lineup of site maps goes a

Passed some supports en route to the park by KFC earlier. 

Good afternoon all! I had the opportunity to visit the Prospertown/Switlik Lake near the park today and grabbed some great photos and footage of the structure. It looks absolutely beautiful from afar,

I think now more than ever they should change Bizarro back to Medusa.  It would be nice to have her and the Jersey Devil at opposite ends of the park especially for Fright Fest.  

 

Bizarro back to Medusa would be absolutely awesome! Not to mention that Medusa's color scheme was great! Hopefully we could keep all of the cool effects such as the fire and mist, as those were great additions to the ride!

Does anyone know if these restraints are different than Wonder Woman's in Fiesta Texas?


I think they’re the same, the seat back on the JDC is just taller. Here are the two trains side by side for comparison:

I love to see RMC making minor improvements for our version! I also read on Reddit (someone had commented) that the wheel axes have been updated from the previous models to be more articulated, hopefully indicating that these trains will navigate the track even better than the first two Raptors!

 

Does anyone know if the station will include a moving loading platform (similar to WW: GLC)? I am really hoping for that, I think it would make the lines move a lot more efficiently and keep the queue moving.

Six Flags Great Adventure did say at ACE’s EastCoaster event that the ride will include a continuous moving station.

They do look different to me. On WW it's one continuous bar from the headrest, down and across your lap. ON JDC, it almost looks like the bar comes from the headrest, and then ends in a separate lap section, similar to something like Zumanjaro's restraint.

I think they might gonna start vertical construction soon between this week or next week (March). So we have to wait until RMC crew finishing up Iron Gwazi at Busch Gardens Tampa soon then early March RMC crew will come to Great Adventure to start building Jersey Devil like two weeks or three weeks.

Cool video. Off topic but I never realized how spread out Nitro’s airtime hills are compared to newer hypers like Mako. Interesting.

They'll better hurry up and start doing vertical construction this week or next week. The track and supports will be build in six weeks just like SFFT's Wonder Woman and CGA's Railblazer.

Logically, a coaster with 3000 ft. of track is going to take longer to build than a coaster with 1800 ft. of track.  I am curious if the station and transfer shed buildings will be delayed because Six Flags has them manufactured in China.

JD’s station and transfer shed are manufactured  in China?

Six Flags buys most of their steel structures from Ningbo Zhonglian Steel Structure because it's cheaper than buying here.

It has been a long time coming, but it's finally here. I am extremely honored to present the magnum opus of our JERSEY DEVIL COASTER construction updates; the recreated ride foundation plan for JERSEY DEVIL COASTER.

 

This journey started on February 1st, 2020, where I watched Great Adventure's second episode of "BEHIND THE ADVENTURE - JERSEY DEVIL COASTER" and noticed that the park had included blueprints in the update. While I was originally just going to let it sit and not do anything with it, I felt like I had to use it. Thus, I tackled the nearly one-month long journey from that day up until today, February 29th, 2020, and finished it. While it was slower at some points than others, recreating these blueprints by hand from scratch with every little detail was a challenge but part of the hustle. I am happy it happened, yet so happy it is over. I would do it all again if I could (I really wouldn't, this took FOREVER!)

 

Nonetheless, I hope you all enjoy this blueprint recreation. Of course, all credit given to Maser Consulting P.A. and their talented team, as well as Richard Maloney who is the lead engineer of this JERSEY DEVIL COASTER project for the original blueprints; as well as GADV themselves for revealing such a precious document.

I know assembly of this will be fairly quick, but this made me laugh the other day in the "Great Adventure Connoisseurs" group on Facebook:

Forgetting how long this took to actually go vertical compared to other parks' new additions, I think this'll still go up relatively fast and (bold prediction) track work will probably be done by opening day.

It looks like most, if not all of the Transfer Track Columns are in place, the "Crow's Nest" support base are in, and the turnaround from the FBR is in place!

All 21 transfer + maintenance columns are in, as well as the columns on the turn into the transfer area, crows nest entrance/exit, and even the A frame support for the initial brake run!
