It's been over a month since the last post about it, but dare I ask if theres been any updates on Jersey Devil? Assuming theres a 0% chance it opens with the park but have they caught up enough to maybe have it ready this operating season?
^ Construction has stopped completely, and the banner has been removed from the parks website. Its still under the "whats new" section but I'd bet the entire project gets pushed to next year, as SF seems to be doing this for all of the new-for-2020 projects chainwide.
Hopefully I'm wrong. I'm bummed but completely understand why any park would do this. The entire point of a new attraction is to get people in the gate, but no parks can operate at full capacity so why bother? Not to mention if it does open this year they're most likely going to have to run it at half capacity so the lines gonna move niiiice and slooooow. Also the majority of parks aren't going to be able to justify new-for-2021 attractions after losing 3 months of income this year, so it makes even more sense to just push what they had planned for this year til next.
^That's a positive way to look at things. I feel the same way about my local 2020 coaster (Emperor).
It's nice to see that Orion and Candymonium will be opening this season (next week!), but I think it is safe to expect that the major Six Flags additions (Jersey Devil, Aquaman) and the SEAS coasters (Iron Gwazi, Pantheon, Emperor, Ice Breaker) will all get pushed to 2021. Although I suppose a winter opening is possible for some of those coasters given the parks they're located in.

The world’s tallest, fastest and longest single rail coaster, Jersey Devil Coaster, will not open this year. Due to the pandemic, most construction projects were delayed or halted all together. 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.
