New Jersey apparently needs to improve its roller coaster game
New Jersey certainly has its share of roller coasters. According to several sources we have verified, there are currently around 30 or 40 roller coasters in the Garden State.
Overall, most of the sites we found indicate that most of the roller coaster is in California, followed by Florida, then a combination of Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and from New Jersey.
Topping the Top 10 list is Steel Vengeance, a roller coaster that opened three years ago in Cedar Point, 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, PA.
Again, no New Jersey coaster made the list, which can be found here.
Of course, the list was released some time ago, and we anticipate that New Jersey’s newest coaster, the Jersey Devil Coaster, will open, literally, any day now at Great Adventure in Jackson. The Jersey Devil Coaster is, according to Great Adventure, the tallest, fastest, and longest single-rail roller coasters in the world.
So how does the Jersey Devil Coaster compare? Here’s a chance to check it out! Here’s a video of Steel Vengeance from Cedar Point:
Now take a look at Great Adventure’s Jersey Devil Coaster. This from a test recently carried out at the park. The merry-go-round was filled with “water people” for the test.
So what do you think? Will the Jersey Devil be part of the next Top 10?

WATCH: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America’s national parks
Today, these parks are spread across the country in 25 states and the US Virgin Islands. The land around them was bought or donated, although much of it was inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world and as spaces for exploration.
