Six Flags Completes World's Tallest Drop Ride – 'Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom'
Gregory Burkart

up11

With Summer rapidly approaching, adventurous vacationers are looking for that next heart-stopping thrill ride, and this year Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey may have just what they're looking for... and then some.



The park has finished construction on “Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom,” which has now officially set the world record for the tallest drop ride, hauling victims – er, I mean passengers – 415 feet in the air before dropping them to earth at 90 miles per hour.



Zumanjaro was inspired by the African theme of the Safari Off Road Adventure, which made its debut last Summer. Its gondolas carry riders straight up the face of another record-breaking ride, the “Kingda Ka” coaster, which curves directly overhead, its cars racing by the vertical drop track at 128 miles per hour. The steel coaster replaces the long-running wooden coaster “Rolling Thunder,” which was retired last Fall.



Find out more about the Drop of Doom at Six Flags Great Adventure... and be sure to check out the world's tallest Ferris Wheel, which just opened on the Las Vegas Strip!

Count me in. That is bad ass that they integrated two rides... a drop zone inside of a coaster? I actually think the coaster would be scarier because you'll be facing the ground the entire way down with all your weight off of the back of the chair and on the shoulder harness. Awesome. I'm in.

Hell yeah. I don't actually like heights, but I dig big rollercoasters and drops like that for some reason.
