Cape Town – Calling all adrenaline junkies out there! Zumanjaro, a newly built thrill lride in New Jersey, is now the world’s tallest drop ride.

Zumanjaro, a 41 storey high thrill ride, opened its doors to the public on 12 April 2014 at the Six Flags Great Adventure Park in Jackson, New Jersey. If you’re having trouble visualizing how high 41 storey’s are, the ride is 126 meters high. To put that into perspective, that is 33 meters higher than the Statue of Liberty.

It gets better/worse

The ride is created in such a way that it will take you to its peak height within 30 seconds, give you a moment to enjoy the phenomenal view from the top, and then suddenly, without warning, drop to the bottom at an intense speed of 144 km/h.

We don’t know about you, but this sounds absolutely terrifying.

If you need a visualization of this ride, watch the promo video here.
