At the rate construction is going, if the park opens in late March, hopefully the new ride will be ready on opening day for the first time in forever.

Speaking of construction, the lift hill is starting to go up.

The park posted a nice video update today. There are some cheesy bits but also some interesting info. Sounds like lift and drop is all that is left until trackwork is complete.

Enjoyed the video! This is a park that for years, a construction update was basically ten minutes of unedited video showing someone drill a screw into some metal, if you even got an update at all. I appreciate the effort they're putting into making the updates digestible and entertaining. I like the "over the fence" construction peak nod, too, lol.

Even if the ride was fully built and tested by late March, the park would most likely delay the opening until after Memorial Day.  That's how Six Flags seems to handle every ride opening.  The one I distinctly remember them rushing in recent years was Wonder Woman at Fiesta Texas just to beat Railblazer so it could claim the title as the first single rail coaster.

That's a great video. Kudos to the park for putting in some effort to update us on the construction!

Come to think of it, I think Jersey Devil will be a bit of a "sleeper hit" this year. All of the attention will be on VelociCoaster, Pantheon, and Iron Gwazi (rightfully so), but just like in 2018 with WW and RB, this coaster could turn out batsh*t insane and get overshadowed by those bigger rides opening in the same year. I can't wait for this ride to come to SFMM.

Couple of shots taken from across the lake, found over on the Great Adventure conn group on FB. Topping off is imminent.

Is this the same model that SFMM may be getting? Or a different layout?

I think the MM version has the station in a different spot.  Otherwise, same.

 

Looks like Jersey Devil will get topped off today.  Nice!

I have a hard time getting excited about new Six Flags coasters because I just assume it'll be 137 years before they actually open. Even when we went to Holiday in the Park this year I made zero walks back there to check it out because I felt like there was no point in getting excited about it but I'm sort of starting to feel the hype here.
