Zumanjaro Drop

Being a long time roller coaster lover.. I am totally looking for this monster of a ride.. with a drop of 415 feet (that is taller than the Statue of Liberty) at a speed of up to 90 mph Zumanjaro will be the tallest tower-drop coaster in the world!!!

Not only is it going to be a sick drop.. but how cool is it that you are going to be racing the King Da Ka trains down the drop as well?!

I think the only sad part of this is that Zumanjaro will be taking the place of Rolling Thunder…

Rolling Thunder was Six Flags Great Adventure’s first wooden coaster that first opened back in 1979.. What was unique about this coaster was that it had dual tracks so that the two trains could “race” around the track to the end.. The first drop is only about 85 ft and the coaster races around the track at average speed of 56 mph..

It’s pretty sad that after 34 years we are having to say good-bye to this little piece of history… It makes me wish I took the time to ride it one more time this season.. Although according to the Six Flags Great Adventure website.. it looks like the ride is already closed :-( So long Rolling Thunder… it’s been a fun 34 years.
