Six Flags Great Adventure Tops Off New Roller Coaster

Jackson, NJ -- Six Flags moved one step closer to completing the new El Toro roller coaster when a crane hoisted the final piece of the 188-foot tall lift hill into place this morning. The roller coaster under construction at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson is slated for completion this spring.

El Toro is a 4,400-foot long wooden roller coaster that stands 188-feet tall. When it debuts it will be the second tallest wooden coaster in the United States and feature the second largest drop, according to Six Flags.

The new roller coaster will anchor a new section of the park, Plaza del Carnaval. El Toro is the replacement for the removed Viper roller coaster.
