Kingda Ka s the world’s tallest roller coaster – rising to its high point of 456 Feet! When it opened in 2004, it was the world’s fastest – speeds in excess of 130 MPH in just 3.5 seconds. This ride is the longest 30-35 seconds of your life (and a must for any adrenaline junkie!0
El Toro hybrids old-school style with its tribute to the wooden coasters of the past (built out of old bits of dead tree), with the new-school heights and speed like no other wooden coaster.
