Roller Coaster - Kingda Ka

OK, this is not in New York ... but some New Yorkers spend as much time commuting to work as they would driving ... to ride the Kingda Ka ... an amazing new roller coaster located at 6 Flags in New Jersey ... 456 feet tall ... it reaches a top speed of 128 mph ... going UP ... lines will be long ... if you're at all queasy, make sure you have a designated driver for the trip back to the City ...

Update: Kingda Ka reopened August 4th ... and you can use an optional reservation service at the park ($ fee) so you don't have to stand in line for hours ...

Expected to reopen this month (August, 2005) ... after some mechanical failures during the initial opening (common with new coasters) ...

Won't run when it rains ... not because the tracks will be slippery .. raindrops would be painful at 128 mph ...
