A second or two later the three cars plummeted almost to the ground at a speed of 90 mph. Awesome drop! And talk about a jolt! But not nearly as bad as I had expected; in fact it was very good and, while quite intense — of course! Not everyone seemed to be of the same opinion. One guy remarked that the elevators in the Sears Tower were probably as fast but, baby, the elevators in the Sears Tower never felt like this!
In fact I saw Kingda Ka trains on the launch track but never saw them launch while I was riding Zumanjaro. A cast member suggested that this might be for safety reasons due to the danger of things falling from overhead although it might have just been a fluke. We shall see how it plays out for the remainder of the operating season.
Still, running both at the same time would have amplified the thrill of each, at least visually if not physically, so not being able to do that not only misses that opportunity, it will slow down and reduce the hourly capacities of each ride. Someone who knows the data ought to do the math, but I wonder if the combined capacity of the two rides, operating one at a time, will end up being less than the capacity of Kingda Ka was before, when it could run without interruption.
If so, this would have to count among Six Flags' bigger fails. As of July 2, the park didn't even have a license from the state to operate the new ride, so that the press preview scheduled for July 2 had to be cancelled although Six Flags wasted no time in getting a license in time to operate it on July 4.
And thanks, Robert, for voicing some of the same concerns I have but was reluctant to put in my article. Your comment that "running both at the same time would have amplified the thrill of each, at least visually if not physically, so not being able to do that not only misses that opportunity, it will slow down and reduce the hourly capacities of each ride" is spot on. First of all, while on Zumanjaro I was acutely aware of the Kingda Ka trains on the launch track and getting impatient when they didn't launch, as this would have been both exciting and entertaining.
Secondly, Kingda Ka usually has the longest queue of any ride in the park; the average wait time to get on, at least on a weekend, is 90 minutes. So with the trains stalled until a cycle on the drop ride is completed, you can see how this will result in significant delays for both rides. I was there this past Sunday, when the park was not at all crowded, and it still took an hour to get to the loading station on KK. Then something rather odd happened. Très bon Moyen Médiocre Horrible Type de voyageur.
