Opening Date

Kingda Ka opened in 2005, becoming the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world (it remains the tallest). It uses a hydraluic engine to launch trains up to a top speed of 128 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds, with the track topping out at 456 feet.

Very similar to Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point (which opened two years earlier), Kingda Ka features a basic circuit that consists of little more than the launch ramp and a tower. However, it does pack in an extra "airtime" hill at the end.
