American Thrill Machine

This roller-coaster is called King for a reason: the highest and one of the fastest in the world, it gives you a truly breathtaking experience. It’s not the fastest of all, unfortunately, because the fastest one is Formula Rossa located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. That one has to be the fastest because it’s located at Ferrari World and it’s, well, kind of difficult to compete in speed with Ferrari.

But Kingda Ka is astonishing enough to be the roller-coaster king of North America – it is 456 feet high (that makes 45 stories!). Imagine getting to the top of it! And then going down at an incredibly high speed.

Speaking about the speed: you leave the station going from 0 to 128 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds! Just imagine that – you will not even have enough time to think: “I have made a huge mistake.”
