Park To Build World’s Tallest Drop Ride

JACKSON, N.J. (August 29, 2013)--Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J. says its planned Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom will hoist riders 415 feet in the air and drop them back to the ground at 90 mph while the park's Kingda Ka roller coaster trains hurl toward riders on Zumanjaro at speeds as fast as 128 miles per hour.

Zumanjaro is scheduled to open in 2014.

Its three, 41-story towers will be built on the face of the roller coaster and each will have a gondola for eight riders.

Meanwhile, the park says this is the last season for its wooden Rolling Thunder roller coaster.

The park says technology has surpassed the dual track coaster, which opened in 1979.
