Kingda Ka

Closed Until Memorial Day Weekend.

There’s a reason this coaster is known as the King. Kingda Ka is quite simply the tallest and fastest roller coaster in North America. Is that impressive enough to warrant royalty? You bet it is.
 
This upside down U-shaped track bolts up 45 stories in the sky—that’s 456 feet high! This leaves all other coasters in the dust. And of course it’s going to take some mighty acceleration to get you to the top of it.
 
You’ll leave the station going from 0 to 128 miles per hour in a jaw-dropping 3.5 seconds. Actually, there won’t even be time for your jaw to drop. You’ll be shooting up that impossible height so fast, you won’t even have time to think, so just hang on. It’s 90° straight up. And once you get to the top you’ll be plummeting right back down in a 270-degree spiral that is not recommended for wimps. There is very little that can prepare you for a drop of this intensity—you’re just going to have to wing it. You’ll top it off with a 129-foot camel hump. Well, how else did you think the King got around?
