This looks awesome, and it’s honestly kinda what I expected. When they started teasing it, I couldn’t help but think T-Rex, but as that idea got shut down pretty quickly, I immediately thought of a custom raptor. Glad that’s exactly what they’re getting! Hopefully I can make it out to Jersey again sometime soon!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This coaster seems awesome. So happy to see this type of coaster finally come to the east coast. I have not ridden one of these yet so the only thing that concerns me is capacity. This park gets super crowded in the summer and overly crowded during Fright Fest.
I may not know everything about coasters... what I do know is they are my life...
Home park: Six Flags America
Favorite park overall: All Walt Disney World Parks
Favorite Steels: Maverick, Millennium Force, Sky Rush, Talon, Poltergeist, I-305

Jersey Devil looks ridiculously good. Very cool theme for a coaster too. With El Toro and now this, Great Adventure is definitely near the top of my “must visit” list

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

For the love of god no. This ride is in one of the darkest areas of the park, they need to just do what they usually do an leave it dark AF so the night rides are as good as (or even better than) Nitro. There will be lights up the lift, which is in the middle of the ride. Hopefully they just leave it at that. I'm praying they leave some of the trees and don't just clear out the entire area before construction.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

I was more than surprised by this coaster. I was not expecting something this big or this long to be put in. I am so ready for 2020 and now there’s another big swinger by Nitro


It’s also very weird they don’t consider the Raven Dive an inversion. I definitely think it classifies as one, weird.

Can we take a moment to appreciate that Great Adventure may now have the two best drops in the country?

The violent ejector air of El Toro's drop was matched by the original Raptor clones. And now that Jersey Devil has a 50% longer train, I'm already salivating over the power of that airtime in the back row.

This. With this ride's location, night rides could be insane.

What excellent news to wake up to. Count me amongst those that want to keep it dark back there; night rides are going to be a blast.
