Are you addicted to strong emotions? Then I’m sure your favorite theme park attractions are roller coasters. And it is that climbing one of these impressive structures (some more than others) promises an incomparable adrenaline rush. Pouring drops, endless turns, impossible straights … These and other ingredients are what make up a fun-filled experience not suitable for the faint of heart.

As you know, there are a huge number of roller coasters spread all over the world. Some of them are even responsible for the fact that the amusement parks that host them add thousands of visitors each season. One of these attractions is Kingda Ka , the tallest roller coaster in the world. Do you want to know more about it? Well, watch out!

The highest and the one with the greatest fall

If you are a roller coaster lover and you travel to the United States, let yourself fall (and never better said) by the Six Flags Great Adventure amusement park, in Jackson, New Jersey, where Kingda Ka is located, which in addition to being the mountain tallest Russian woman in the world, holds the record for having the highest fall in the world. In addition, when it was inaugurated in 2005 it also became the leader in speed, a title that it lost five years later.

And it is that the Kingda Ka roller coaster reaches a height of 139 meters and a speed of 206 km / h. Of course, the most shocking thing is its fall, from 127 meters.

The tour

After checking the train, it slowly makes its way to the launch area. Once there, it is coupled to the hydraulic launch system that will accelerate from 0 to 206 km / h in 3.5 seconds. At the end of the launch pad , the train climbs up a 90º slope, passing through a spiral, to the top of the main tower, from where it descends down another 270º spiral to the right.
