    Capacity Harness Reliability

    モノはデカくて立派だが、えらくあっさり、早く終わるという点でウマの交尾のようなコースター。

    Launch Fun Intensity Rattle Harness

    Overall very solid ride for tallest coaster in the world. It has shown its age over the years because of how shaky it is but the speed and height 100% pays off for it. The harness does cut off some of the freedom but its not to bad. The best part is definitely when you get to the top because of the amazing view. It is unfortunate with the little airtime you get which is kind of sad because you would think you would get some airtime on the hill at the end but none can really be found. I would rather ride Top Thrill Dragster but overall Kingda Ka is definitely a coaster wonder of the earth is 100 percent a must do when you visit SixFlags Great Adventure.

    For being the tallest coaster it's a solid ride.

    This thing is insane. Most intense coaster I’ve ever been on. The rattle adds to the experience. Absolutely incredible ride.

    Launch Fun Intensity Too short Reliability

    Kingda Ka is a very thrilling ride that I feel is hated on too much. I rode this after riding TTD and Xcellerator, but I was not let down at all by this ride. I will admit that I've only ridden Kingda Ka and TTD once each, and in the front row for both, which arguably changes the experience. However, for now I am still rating Kingda Ka over TTD still for several reasons. First, it's been a long time (6+ yrs) since I rode TTD, so I do not remember the specifics from that ride very well. Some things that people complain about with Kingda Ka are the restraints and the rattle. I honestly did not feel any distracting rattle in the front seat, and the over-the-shoulder restraints did not get in my way. The pure sense of speed during the launch is the best part of this ride, as the wind is whipping your face. The 270 degree twisting drop is also crazy, and the airtime hill actually did provide a little. This gets a star off for its length and reliability. I hope to ride this and TTD closer together in the future to make better comparisons.

    it's good. Its an experience. But if you've done Dragster, you'll be let down. Rattles as everyone says. Restraints aren't the best but dont kill it really. Its just not as good as its little brother.

    i didnt find it to be that rough and the restraints didnt bother me at all, and i dont care about the trim cuz i never got airtime on TTD anyway, i prefer this over TTD cuz the launch is significantly better, thats the only thing good about this ride but i love myself a nice intense launch

    Airtimes Launch Intensity Rattle Harness

    100th credit! Really fun coaster with one of the most intense experiences in the scene. The wind in your face that you get in the front is gnarly, and the enormous hill after the drop delivers way more forces and airtime than you would expect. However, the ridiculously uncomfortable, unnecessary over the shoulder restraints (that are required by New Jersey law, unfortunately) put a damper on what should be an incredible ride, making it just a great ride. The OTSRs become more of an issue in the back of the train, which compared to the glass smooth front is rattly as hell; the rattling itself wouldn't be enough to be too uncomfortable, but the rattle combined with the restraints can make for a ride experience that can be pretty unpleasant. Really the only change this ride needs is TTD's lapbars, but unfortunately the law isn't letting that happen.

    Didn't really mind the restraints. Launch is better than TTDs for me + I like the big hill. It rattles a bit but how could it not at such speeds and it's only in 2 places so who cares.

    Launch Harness Discomfort

    Ooooh! Owww! Kingda Cow! The OTSR's and rough track spoiled this ride for me. The airtime hill on the return is real redout territory - military pilots are taught to not pull heavy negative G because it's seriously uncomfortable having blood jammed into your eyes. Kingda Ka gave me a massive headache almost immediately. What a come down from the masterpiece that is Top Thrill Dragster. in fact on the day I remember clearly stating that I preferred the little vekoma booster bike at Flamingo Land. Still a lot of fun to try once, but there are better rides at SFGAdv.

    Launch Layout Rattle Theming Harness

    Kingda Ka is the tallest roller coaster in the world right now. Just because it’s the tallest doesn’t mean it’s the best. This ride has a lot of cons. Let me start with the pros first. The launch is incredibly fast and amazing. Also you get a perfect view of everything as you slowly make it over the top hill. The drop has the usual twist in it as you plummet down at speeds past 100mph. This ride has many cons. First, it’s harnesses are uncomfortable and you won’t be able to put your hands up. And as you come back down, it will crush your thighs as it tightens because of the speed. This is why Cedar Point’s, Top Thrill Dragster, is better because its harnesses are lap bars and are more comfortable for being the second tallest roller coaster in the world which I’ve been on as well. Second, the launch is insanely rough. Third, the theming is horrible and I still don’t know what it’s supposed to represent. Fourth, it’s location is secluded, by trees and fences, so you’ll only be able to see it’s true height, and not the launch. On Top Thrill Dragster, there are bleachers located right next to the launch so you’ll be able to see its incredible speed as it heads up the hill. And fifth, if you sit in the back or close to the back, get prepared for the worst migraine of your life. So I suggest you sit in the front.

    Great launch and speed... but only in the front. Very rattly acceleration otherwise. Still, a memorable coaster that will give you many bragging rights!

    Launch Rattle Capacity Harness

    Kingda Ka is the worse version of Top Thrill Dragster. A double loading station that's never used, crappy hard vest restraints, a wonky launch, and an incredibly annoy rattle. And its capacity it worsened by Zumanjaro and its worse reliability.
