Looping Roller Coaster
DougLemke

Come aboard if you dare! These are some of the scariest, heart-pumping rides New Jersey has to offer. The good ol’ Garden State is by far one of the hottest amusement park destinations in the country, so take advantage before the summer ends!


1

Kingda Ka – Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson NJ

 

 

Ah, Kingda Ka! The tallest roller coaster in the WORLD, and it’s right here in New Jersey! This coaster towers at a staggering 456 feet tall with a 90° vertical drop, clocking in at 128 mph! Thrill-seekers from all over the world come to Jersey to cross this sky-scraper of a ride off their bucket lists. Definitely not for the faint-hearted

 

2

El Toro – Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson NJ

 

 

Another one from Six Flags Great Adventure (which is one of the biggest amusement parks in the country), El Toro is another ride for the dare devil in you. It’s a 181 ft tall wooden coaster that’ll send you zooming at 70 mph.   Speaking from personal experience, I can definitely say that this ride is definitely scary, but so much fun!

The Great Nor’easter – North Wildwood, NJ

 

 

A great thrill-seeking destination on the Wildwood boardwalk  is The Great Nor’easter coaster at Morey’s Pier. It clocks in at 115 ft tall with a 95 ft drop and five inversions, sending riders zooming at 55 mph. This one’s also just been refurbished for a smoother ride!

Nitro – Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson NJ

 

 

It’s obvious that Six Flags Great Adventure is one of the hottest destinations for the scariest rides New Jersey has to offer. Nitro is a 230 ft tall coaster that will send you down a drop of 215 feet at 80 mph! When it opened in 2001, it was the tallest coaster on the east coast. It’s one of Six Flag’s most popular coasters

 

5

AtmosFEAR – North Wildwood, NJ

 

 

AtmosFEAR is definitely a stomach-dropping thriller that you’ll want to visit at Morey’s Pier. It’ll have your toes curling in anticipation as you slowly ascend 140 ft from the ground before without warning, you plummet back down at faster-than-freefall speeds! The scariest part has to be the anticipation!
