The Kingda Ka rollercoaster at Six Flags Great Adventure is currently out of action as it undergoes repair.

The ride has been closed on a number of occasions recently and the park has now taken action to rectify the problems. The hydraulic engine used to the launch the coaster's train at the start of the ride has been removed for repair, which could see it closed until the end of July.

Kingda Ka opened three years ago, holding the titles of tallest and fallest rollercoaster in the world until the opening of Ring Racer this year at Nürburgring. The hydraulic engine launches the ride to a top speed of 128 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds, with the track topping out at 456 feet.
