NEWS UPDATE - August 31, The Jersey Devil Coaster is now open again.
NEWS UPDATE - Silverwood announced on August 13 that Stunt Pilot is now open again.
The Jersey Devil Coaster was closed again on Friday August 6, 2021 after a call was made to Six Flags Great Adventure from ride manufacturer RMC.
The actual issue wasn't with The Jersey Devil Coaster itself but due to an expected malfunction with one of the trains on Stunt Pilot at Silverwood on Friday. As both The Jersey Devil Coaster and Stunt Pilot are second-generation single-rail RMC coasters, RMC felt it necessary to get Six Flags Great Adventure to close The Jersey Devil coaster for another full inspection to ensure the same technical problem doesn't occur.
Silverwood posted on their Facebook page that "due to technical difficulties, Stunt Pilot will be temporarily closed as the manufacturer, Rocky Mountain Construction, works on fixing the coaster. They are working around the clock to get it back up and running as soon as possible."
This is a major blow to Six Flags Great Adventure as it is now the second time in just over a month that The Jersey Devil Coaster has had to close for investigation and inspection. The week long closure in mid-July was said "as a proactive measure, the manufacturer RMC has paused operation on two of their second generation single-rail coasters for a full inspection."
This current closure appears to be due to a possible technical problem with the second-generation single-rail RMC coaster itself which led to the unexpected malfunction with one of the Stunt Pilot trains on Friday August 6, 2021.
We contacted Six Flags Great Adventure to try to get further information on how long the closure of The Jersey Devil Coaster is likely to be and Public Relations Supervisor, Gabriel Darretta responded saying, "Unfortunately we cannot speculate the length of time The Jersey Devil Coaster will be closed. As a proactive measure, the manufacturer of Jersey Devil Coaster has paused operation on two of their second generation single-rail coasters for a full inspection. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to reopen the ride soon."
We will keep you updated with any news of the reopening of The Jersey Devil Coaster as soon as we get it.
