It would be great if they could though, because im not to sure about this whole backwards thing.


It's not even confirmed that they're going to run it backwards, so I wouldn't worry about it.

I know it hasn't been confirmed, but I think it's likely to happen.

Then just wait until they turn it forwards again. It's as simple as that.

Just saw this on Six Flags' YouTube channel. Apparently, the name of the park's new Super Loop has been changed from Looping Dragon to El Diablo Loop Coaster :|. Not sure why they're doing that, especially now, but I guess El Diablo is a better name than Looping Dragon.

Isn't it supposed to be built near El Toro? If so, the new name would make more sense than Looping Dragon.

I guess it will appear on the park map as located in Plaza Del Carnaval. Wasn't it originally in The Golden Kingdom?

Wasn't this going in that field near the Zumanjaro queue? If so this is a terrible name so I assume this is going in Plaza de carnival now.

Ugh, I really hope this isn't going in Plaza Del Carnival now, but it's Six Flags so with this name change that's almost guaranteed. :/

I bet they use the still-existing switchbacks for Rolling Thunder and just put it where the RT station used to be.

Actually it looks like we have a press release that backs up exactly what you're suggesting...

From Great Adventure History

The Devil Is in the Details at Six Flags

Great Adventure Announces New Theme, Location for 2015 Looping Coaster


Jackson, NJ – January 14, 2015 – The devil is in the details for Six Flags Great Adventure's new looping coaster, set to open this spring. Originally announced in the fall of 2014 as "Looping Dragon," with an Asian-inspired moniker and location in the Golden Kingdom section, the park's 13th coaster was re-imagined by park management who opted for a more “devilish” theme – El Diablo.

"The Jersey devil has deep roots in our state's history, and inspired the new theme for our upcoming thrill ride," said Park President John Fitzgerald.

The giant, fiery red El Diablo looping coaster will make its home next to the world's top-rated wooden coaster, El Toro, in the Mexican-themed Plaza del Carnaval section. It features riders sitting in “face-off” seats rocketing forward and backward pendulum style until the train gains enough momentum to complete a full revolution seven stories in the air. The coaster then kicks into high gear, completing full revolutions until it stops momentarily with riders suspended upside down, and then reverses direction for even more thrills.

"El Diablo is the perfect addition to Plaza del Carnaval, as it appeals to both thrill seekers and families alike. Rides like El Toro and Tango attract a wide audience to this area, which also provides ample opportunities for dining, shopping and relaxation from the excitement of the world’s largest theme park," Fitzgerald added.

El Diablo is set to open this spring, and will have a 48-inch height requirement to ride.

The link from the official site is gone but a quick search for "The Devil Is in the Details at Six Flags" confirms that this came right from the official park website. So it sounds like it will go in Plaza Del Carnival, and I'm sure it's going exactly where Boldikus is saying. Personally I prefer this location to the old one.
