JACKSON, N.J. — New Jersey's Six Flags Great Adventure amusement park has settled on a devilish theme for its new roller coaster.
El Diablo will be located in the Jackson park's Plaza del Carnaval.
The coaster was originally called Looping Dragon with an Asian-inspired theme when park officials announced its plans in the fall. But park president John Fitzgerald says officials decided to focus on a Jersey devil theme instead.
The park says riders will sit in face-off seats in the red looping coaster, which will rock pendulum style until it gains enough momentum to complete a full revolution seven stories in the air. The coaster will then suspend riders upside down before reversing direction.
El Diablo is set to open in the spring.
