For those who like roller coasters, Kingda Ka is operating again (it's been broken most of the summer) at Six Flags New Jersey. Wait time was over 3hrs yesterday (a Monday), but if you love roller coasters this is worth it. It is the tallest, fastest roller coaster in the world to date. It starts with a horizontal catapult launch (similar to the catapults used to launch aircraft from aircraft carriers) accelerating the train to 128mph in 3.5 seconds. Then straight up to a height of 456 feet!!! Then straight down 418 feet through a 270 degree twist, and finally up and over a 129 foot breaking hill. An awesome experience worth every penny and every moment waiting in line.
