Trivia for 5/28
Answer for 5/27:
At 456 ft/139 m (45 stories high), Kingda Ka in New Jersey is the world's tallest what?
The world's highest (and fastest) roller coaster. At Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, NJ, the 59-second ride is named after the Bengal tiger that also lives in the Golden Kingdom area of the park. The roller coaster climbs to a height of 456 ft/139 m — 45 stories high — and reaches 128 mph/206 kmph at its fastest. From the top of the tower, if you had time to look around, you'd be able to see New York City, Atlantic City and Philadelphia. Last year, Kingda Ka was hit by lightning, putting it out of commission for a few months.
