I almost feel like they are kinda underselling this coaster. That they're just saying "5 elements with 2 inversions" *sounds* a little underwhelming, no? The video mentions the angle of descent but not the height or speed. Where are the "X moments of weightlessness" claims? Why don't the turnarounds have some funky RMC names?
Stupid things to gripe about, I know but I guess that's a good thing. This ride looks so insane, I almost can't even believe its happening.
You know what else is cool? If they don't wait until spring to start construction, we'll be able to watch progress during HITP via Nitros lift.

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.
But the real life Jersey Devil is bioluminescent, didn't you know?
In all seriousness, lighting package or not (expecting not), this looks like the perfect new coaster for SFGAdv. Checks all the boxes for them. I expect the raven dive and the drop off the turnaround over the station to be highlights if Railblazer is any indication.
Great Adventure's coaster lineup is already ridiculous and this has the potential to be one of the best rides in the park. As Boldy said, I'm also thrilled that it will probably be a Holiday in the Park ride since that's usually when we visit the most.
I can't wait.

This ride will probably have similar capacity to Kingda Ka and Joker. Honestly it might even be better.
