Six Flags Great Adventure has renamed their newest creation, Looping Dragon. The new name is a nod to Jersey Devil Folklore as well as the Spanish themed area it will reside. The single looping coaster will be renamed, El Diablo. The ride will be located in the Plaza Del Carnival section of the park and is set to open in Spring. The new ride received a high amount of negative response when announced later in 2014. While we feel the ride is sort of step back in Amusement Park History, we feel the name fits the area!
