New Jersey Apparently Needs to Up Its Roller Coaster Game
New Jersey certainly has its share of roller coasters. According to several sources we checked, there are currently somewhere around 30 or 40 something roller coasters in the Garden State.
Overall, most sites we found report that the most roller coasters can be found in California, followed by Florida, and then some combination of Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Jersey.
Topping the 10 Best list is Steel Vengeance, a roller coaster opened three years ago at Cedar Point in Ohio.
Number two on the list is Mako at Sea World in Orlando, and number three is the Phoenix at Knoebels Amusement Resort in Elysburg, Pennsylvania.
Again, no New Jersey coaster made the list, which can be found here.
Of course, the list has been published some time ago, and we are anticipating New Jersey's newest coaster, the Jersey Devil Coaster, to open, literally, any day now at Great Adventure in Jackson. The Jersey Devil Coaster is, according to Great Adventure, the world's tallest, fastest, and longest roller single-rail coaster.
So, how does the Jersey Devil Coaster compare? Here's a chance to check it out! Here's a video of Cedar Point's Steel Vengeance:
Now, a look at Great Adventure's Jersey Devil Coaster. This from a test run done recently at the park. The ride was filled with "water-people" for the test.
So, what do you think? Will the Jersey Devil make the next Best 10?
