If you are an adrenaline junkie that loves roller coasters (like me…), this is probably an interesting subject for you. The Kingda Ka is where to start. It is one of the shortest roller coasters in the world but also has the longest initial drop. It goes from 0 to 128 mph in four seconds. It is located in Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari (which is in Jackson, New Jersey).
While visiting the Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari, make sure to also ride the El Toro. The El Toro may seem tame because there aren’t as many loops as some other roller coasters. But then you need to remember that it is made of wood, not metal. The bounciness of wood is scary in itself and that needs to be taken into account.
For those of you that think that the craziest roller coasters ever is an American thing, let’s take a look at the Sky Scream coaster in Germany. It has some really odd combinations and speeds that I have not seen done before. It’s not scary because of the height or the speed; it’s scary because you can’t figure out where you’re going.
