Six Flags Great Adventure will break yet another record in 2014 - shattering the world record for tallest drop ride with the addition of the 41-story Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom! Connected to the iconic Kingda Ka roller coaster, Zumanjaro will hoist riders 415 feet into the sky and rocket them back to Earth at 90 miles per hour while Kingda Ka trains launch right toward them at speeds of up to 128 miles per hour. Each drop tower will feature a gondola with eight riders. Three soaring Zumanjaro towers will be built on the face of the massive Kingda Ka coaster debuting during the parks 41st season.
Insider Tips for Family Fun:
- Check the Calendar! Special Events and Concerts are held throughout the year.
- Ride the Biggest Rides first or last. The best time to ride Kingda Ka, SUPERMAN: Ultimate Flight, Nitro, BATMAN: The Ride, El Toro and GREEN LANTERN are when the park opens or after 6pm.
- Beat the Heat! THE DARK KNIGHT Coaster, Skull Mountain or Kingpin Bowl-A-Rama are three great indoor attractions that you can head to to cool off.
- Eat late, or early. By eating at non-traditional times, you can take advantage of shorter lines while everyone else dines.
Opens at 10:30 AM; closing hours vary seasonally.
