I went to Six Flags: Great Adventure today! It's the best Six Flags park, according to a lot of people. I've been there twice before, so the ride to the park is a lot shorter (it WAS 3 hours before, it's less than an hour now!). I got so sunburned, I look like a tomato.

I rode this:

Kingda Ka (rode it twice!)
(link to it's Wikipedia page for those who are interested)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingda_Ka
Specs:
It is currently the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world
Height: 456 ft (139.5984 m)
Speed: 128 mph (57.22112 m / s)
Launch Acceleration: 0-128 mph in 3.5 seconds



Nitro (My fave coaster in the world!)
Specs:
First Drop: 215 feet (65.5 m) at 66 degrees
Height: 230 feet (70.1 m)
Maximum Speed: 80 mph (35.7632 m / s)



and

Superman: Ultimate Flight (I didn't enjoy this one...it wasn't very good)

Specs:
Height: 115 ft (35.052 m)
Drop: 100 ft (30.48 m)
Max Speed: 60 mph (26.8224 m / s)



We did some other little things while walking around the park, but due to time restrains we were only able to ride these coasters (the lines are long, even with the Flash Pass, which helps make your wait a bit shorter!).

I got a bit sunburned, but I had a great time, and that's what matters!
