NEW - Jersey Devil Coaster delayed until 2021


Recommended Posts

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 as follows:

  • February 23rd (In progress) (Footing back-fill and station footings)
  • February 27th (Prepping for steel and station footings)
  • March 2nd (Vertical construction)
  • March 4th (from the Behind the Adventure video, given there is some new information in the video).

All site maps I am behind on will be completed before Winter Adventure on the 14th. I will share with the forums the map for the 27th and all maps after that. Once the site maps are done, I will be moving into the column maps and a new track map similar to the configuration of the column map. Stay tuned!

Here is the latest JERSEY DEVIL COASTER construction site map! This one took ages to update and was by far one of the most challenging map updates I’ve completed thus far. While the pictures the park

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

Just for the hell of it (no pun intended), here's the site map for February 23, 2020. As we can see, all of the footings have been back-filled with dirt and all of the pier caps are complete. We can see especially the sheer size of that nine foot "Frankenstein" pier cap for the crows nest element. Likewise, we have the molds in for the station building that will house the load and unload areas of the ride. We also see a new dark dirt, which is used as an under-layer for gravel on the new access route. This new route extends nearly the entire length of the ride and hugs right up against the pier caps, wrapping all the way around the back-half over bank and ending just before the second queue house (you can see this in further detail on the blueprints).

One of comments on this video saying RMC told them JDC will be done by end of July. is that true? JDC coaster would be done before Memorial Day weekend. 

New Jersey has strict ride safety rules, so that can throw a wrench into things (Ka and Zu were intended to crest/drop at the same time, but the state said no)

The end of the video:  "Say it with us. Summer 2020"

Hersheypark keeps claiming Summer of 2020 for ChocolateTown, but judging by the progress, "Summer" is actually probably Memorial Day or earlier. 

Of course I can see Jersey Devil opening late June though.

In addition, here is the small map update and tweak for March 4th, courtesy of the fantastic Behind the Adventure video the park provided us with. With this map complete, we are officially caught up on site maps and eagerly await to further update them as regularly scheduled. Now, we will be moving onto both column and track maps to wrap up our "catching-up" phase. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Also, apparently 2 of the state inspectors retired and now there's only 1 for the entire state. (Combine that with American Dream opening, he must have been pretty busy)

What does it take for one to become a state inspector?

Yay! I'm very excited for this week's construction update from the park, hopefully we'll be able to see track go vertical, and more! Thanks to daylights' saving time, we also are one hour CLOSER to opening day!

It’s great to see so much progress.  Hopefully soon maybe even track is on the ride site.

Good evening,

 

Just checking in to update you all on the map. Aiming to have the 3/9 map done for Friday so that I have a blank slate before Winter Adventure on Saturday given it is still happening. 
 

Everyone, please be careful and safe with all of the coronavirus madness going on right now. As you may have seen in the Winter Adventure email (if you are attending the event), leave spaces in the Showcase Theater. Bring hand sanitizer if you can and wash your hands rigorously and consistently, preferably with warm water. If you are sick, please stay home and do not attend the event. 
 

Have a great night everyone.

Winter Adventure has officially been cancelled.

Hi Everyone

 

ACE NJ regrets to inform you that Winter Adventure is cancelled. This decision from ACE NJ did not come lightly. Six Flags Great Adventure has been very accommodating to our needs. Ultimately it came down to my gut feeling and decision. (Bret Ulozas).

 

Six Flags Great Adventure opens on April 4th. We hope to see you all there! Everyone will receieve a refund in the next 3 to 5 days (Thanks Paypal)

 

Please stay safe and healthy!!

 Great now we will never see what Jersey Devil Coaster looks like for entrance, queue, coaster, etc....Great work losers. I hope next is Great Adventure might postponed opening day to Spring Break or early May. Thanks a lot, coronavirus. 

I think the event was cancelled in our best favor, Six Flags FUN! With a public gathering like this, the risk of contracting an illness whether it is coronavirus or not is far too substantial to hold the event especially given recent history. Our best bet is to return to the park on opening day and see the coaster for ourselves then, even though it is not an actual site tour. As much as it sucks that the event is cancelled this year, opening day is still less than one month away!

The parks should just close until they are ready to open their new attractions.

You'll eventually see pictures and such about The Jersey Devil. It's not like it's going anywhere. If it's postponed, at least it's better than it never happening, right? I'm sad things are canceling on me too, but it's not like there's anything to be done except wait until the virus is no longer a threat to the public. I'd rather have to wait for something than potentially get very sick and potentially transmit a virus to people who can't fight it off like I probably can. Everything will happen with time. :Spindevil:

Yikes, this is a rough response.
