(8/29/19) The rumors were all true and the Jersey Devil will be brought to life in the form of a brand new single-rail roller coaster from RMC. This new coaster will be the world’s tallest, fastest and longest single rail coaster standing 13-stories tall. Riders will hit speeds up to 58mph and travel over 3000 feet of track and through two inversions.
This is no clone of the chain’s first RMC single rail coaster which opened in 2018 in Texas, this is a completely different layout that is much larger and longer and spread-out compared to the prototype’s compact layout. The layout will feature an 87º first drop, a raven dive, a 180º Stall element, a zero-g-roll, and a ton of airtime hills along the way.
The trains are also much longer, allowing for greatly increased rider capacity. If the concept art is true these new trains will hold 12 riders at a time instead of just 8.
