Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari
Jackson, New Jersey


Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom is our new record-breaking drop ride that shoots you 41 stories into the sky, then rockets you back to Earth at 90 miles per hour. Pause for a few terrifying moments at the 415-foot peak, then catch a glimpse of the skyscrapers of Philadelpia 52 miles to the south before gravity plunges you back to the ground in less than 10 seconds.  Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom is connected to the iconic Kingda Ka — the 456-foot monster that ranks as the world's tallest and fastest coaster in North America.
