See recent posts by Amanda Geronikos

There’s still no word on the opening of Verruckt, touted to be the world’s fastest, tallest water slide, but we do know this: the world’s fastest, tallest drop ride will soon open in New Jersey.

Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J. will open Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom, on which riders will ascend 410 feet in the air, then drop back to the ground at a whopping 90 mph. Plus, the park’s famous Kingda Ka Roller Coaster will launch toward Zumanjaro riders, adding to the thrill.

An opening date for Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom has not yet been announced.

The park will celebrate its 40th Anniversary on July 4.
