Kingda Ka

sixflag.jpgSix Flags Makes History as it Completes the Tallest, Fastest Roller Coaster on Earth's 45-story Tower

Jackson, NJ - January 14, 2005 - Six Flags Great Adventure "topped off" (placed the apex, or top piece of steel track) the massive, 456-foot-tall tower of Kingda Ka - the tallest, fastest roller coaster on earth. An enormous crane, towering more than 500 feet in the air, hoisted the final piece of steel track into place, completing the record-breaking roller coaster tower yesterday.

Kingda Ka's tower stands 151 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty and dwarfs London's Big Ben.

Kingda Ka will shatter existing world records for speed and height, launching from 0 to 128 mph in 3.5 seconds, and reaching a maximum height of 456 feet. It is the cornerstone of the new Golden Kingdom, an 11-acre mythical jungle also featuring the Temple of the Tiger show and exhibit; Balin's Jungleland, an elaborate, new children's area; plus a plethora of exotic creatures, and new shopping and dining facilities.

absolutely!!! :lol:

Remember the Bugs Bunny cartoon episode where Bugs is standing on the north side of the Mason Dixon line and Yosemity Sam is on the south side. The line was painted black right across the countryside so it was plainly marked. Yosemity accidently stepped on the north side, jumped back and said, "I'm gonna have to burn my boots cause they touched Yankee soil."

I know how he feels. :bigsmile:

I don't think anyone will miss the smell of catfish and goat semen as they crap out their intestines and scramble their brains on the tallest and fastest roller coaster on earth.

That's why the front seat in any roller coaster is the most popular. :)

i'm still waiting for them to build a rollercoaster where one gets on w/a parachute and at some unknown point, you fly off to skydive down down DOWN. :lol:

Real men don't need a parachute to skydive down, down, DOWN!

You may need a parachute if you intend to do it more than once.

Six Flags does it again...

...TATSU...The Tallest, Fastest, Longest Flying Beast on Planet Earth!

VALENCIA, CA. - Marking the renown Thrill Park's 35th anniversary, Six Flags Magic Mountain announces another monster addition to its supreme coaster dynasty with TATSU, a "flying beast" to soar into the record books as the tallest, fastest and longest flying coaster on Planet Earth! This new species of fear is slated for a Spring 2006 invasion.

"Six Flags is known world-wide as the industry leader in next generation thrills. And, bar none, Six Flags Magic Mountain leads the pack always adding the biggest and the best," stated Del Holland, vice president and general manager of Six Flags California. "There's no better way to commemorate the Park's 35th anniversary than to continue to live up to our reputation - give our guests a stunning one-of-a-kind ride experience only Six Flags can deliver!"

Reaching far beyond traditional thrills, this one-of-a-kind flying beast will take the coaster riding experience to the next generation. Fearless riders will brave a never-been-done-before completely integrated flight pattern - up, down, over and through -- the Park's distinct mountainous terrain with nothing but the sky above and the ground below in a unique "horizontal to earth" flying position.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
