Six Flags Great Adventure Renames New 2015 Roller Coaster to "El Diablo" Opening Spring 2015

 Six Flags Great Adventure has thrown a curve ball, and has announced the Re-Naming of their New 2015 Coaster to El Diablo. The original Asian theme with the name "Looping Dragon" has been scrapped and re-imagined for a new "devilish" themed environment. 

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.

"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 will still open as scheduled this Spring, and will require a 48 inch height requirement. That's all for now from Theme Park Overload!
