The Florida park is making swift progress on its record-setting RMC conversion of the former Gwazi wooden coasters, compared to our construction tour of the coaster a couple of weeks ago.
Up the east coast at Six Flags Great Adventure, the New Jersey park has released images of the trains for its upcoming Jersey Devil Coaster as part of its construction update.
*Official* #JerseyDevil Coaster construction update 2/12/20 ?? Concrete was poured for the last 12 pier caps today! We also got a sneak peek at the first car of the trains, and more steel deliveries. The devil soon will be headed to New Jersey ?? pic.twitter.com/9kLNrLV4ru— Great Adventure (@SFGrAdventure) February 12, 2020
Another RMC production, Jersey Devil will be the single-rail, Raptor model, standing 130 feet tall and reaching a top speed of 58 mph on 3,000 feet of track.
We don't have official opening dates for either coaster yet, but when you're ready, we have tickets available for Busch Gardens Tampa on our travel partner's discounted theme park tickets page.Tweet
