    Worlds fastest roller coaster? Kingda Ka

    Kingda Ka is a roller coaster located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, New Jersey, USA. At its opening on May 21, 2005, it became the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world, claiming the title from Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point. The train is launched by a hydraulic launch mechanism to 128 miles per hour (206 km/h) in 3.5 seconds.At the end of the launch track, the train climbs the main top hat tower reaching a height of 456 feet (139.5 m). Due to aviation safety concerns, the tower is equipped with three dual strobes: two mid-way up, and one on the top.

    on the ride. wherever your hands are once it takes off your stuck. the ride is about 12 seconds if that. its sure in hell not worth the wait. i mean if u want to go high go in a helicopter or go to the top of a tall building

    we have a 400 foot ride just like that. honestly though, I dont sense at all how high I am on that ride. Their is no sensation of height at all. and going down doesnt feel at all like it does on other coasters, you dont have that lose your stomache feeling. its still real cool though.
