The Jersey Devil will have to wait a little longer before taking flight over Six Flags Great Adventure.
A new thrill ride honoring the Garden State's homegrown cryptid, the Jersey Devil Coaster, was announced by the park in August 2019 and had been expected to welcome riders this summer. The ride is now set to open in 2021, the park announced Tuesday.
"Due to the pandemic, most construction projects were delayed or halted all together," reads a statement on the Six Flags Great Adventure website. "For this reason, Six Flags is making plans to debut Jersey Devil Coaster in 2021. We look forward to sharing more construction updates as we complete this record-breaking scream machine."
