Six Flags Great Adventure announces the world's tallest, fastest coaster today. Kingda Ka will be an Intamin rocket launching 128 mph in 3.5 seconds reaching 456 feet tall. It will be configured similarly to Cedar Point's Dragster, only with a drawn-out 129-foot bunny hill.
Ka is a god/diety worshipped by the Hindus. I have no idea what Kingda means. The "bunny hill" and acceleration (it IS 3.5 seconds, read the report) compared to Dragster will be very exciting, but this report doesn't tell one thing some enthusiasts will probably be complaining about tomorrow... :-\
+Danny, can't wait to see the animation*** This post was edited by +Danny 9/29/2004 12:49:44 AM ***
This coaster sounds amazing, I cant believe something of this size will be at my home park, Its such a shock that the record has been broken this fast. It also sounds like GADV is planning on improving the park over the next few years.*** This post was edited by NYCoasterGuy 9/29/2004 1:35:09 AM ***
just an observation about that pic everyone is talkin about....if u look, u can see the turnaround from Rolling Thunder, and Medusa in the background.....however, to the left of Kingda Ka, u see Nitro......what should be to the left of the new coaster is the PARKING LOT, lol...not Nitro. Nitro is back behind where that "photo is taken"....still though, the coaster looks insane, and i cant wait to see animation!!!
cant believe this is in m college back yard:) i cant wait till next year!!
