Set to open soon at New Jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure, Zumanjaro Drop Of Doom stands 400-feet-tall and will be the world’s tallest free fall ride. It consists of three free fall drop attractions, with each mounted to a lateral flank of the Kingda Ka structure. All three towers feature a single floorless gondola seating eight-abreast. Before riding riders will queue along a new African baboon habitat. Riders are harnessed in by over-the-shoulder restraints. Catch cars hoist the gondolas up the tower before reaching a dynamic height of 415 feet (126 m). The gondolas are then released into a fast free fall descent, attaining a terminal velocity of 90 miles per hour (140 km/h). Continue reading for a video.
Sitting in your seat aboard the Zumanjaro Drop Of Doom, you’ll have to endure the sight of Kingda Ka riders hurtling toward you at 128 MPH.
Then, as you drop, they will arc over your head and come screaming past you as you fall at speeds of up to 80 MPH, your lunch spilling out of your stomach only to hover before you like some sort of twisted NASA zero gravity experiment.
