Hiya, I was thinking of planning a trip to Six Flags Great Adventure but wanted to make sure that the seat belts weren't severely limited like how Intamin changed them on Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point. I rode Millennium Force three years ago before the changes but couldn't get on last year. I'm not the hugest person in the world and I could get the belt closed and was denied for not being able to pull the 2 inches slack in the test seat. From what I'm reading about Kingda Ka it looks like it's over the shoulder restraints, but before I drive the 6 hours down to the park for this ride I just wanted some input as to if I'll have any problems just getting on the ride. Thanks.

KK uses the same restraints as on Storm Runner. They are over-the-shoulder, but they are pretty forgiving. The rule is one inch of belt slack (they have a line woven into the seat belts). Most body types fit, but unless you're very tall or very large, you shouldn't have a problem.

Is 6'5" along the lines as "very tall?" I"m on my way in the next few weeks.

I need to go on the big boy seats for B&Ms (well I could go in the normal ones, but I prefer to breathe on the rides) and I fit on Storm Runner no problem.

DS, you'll be able to fit, but it might be a bit uncomfortable. I'm 6'3" and my shoulders sometimes get squeezed in a little bit tight. Just make sure you take the time to get your upper body comfortable before you close the restraints or you'll regret it. :P

I also fit on SR no problem and I needed the Big Boy seat on Great Bear my first time. So you should be ok on KK.

I fit in Storm Runner and Kingda Ka without any problem at all... The trains seem more forgiving by far then that of MF and Dragster.
Don't worry about height either, im 6'5" or so and 250lbs + and have no problems on anything at all except PTC trains and legroom, haha. You should be fine.
MMM, millennium flyer legroom... :)
