No - it takes very little to close the ride and high winds or rain will cause the ride to close.

If it is even just the slightest drizzle the ride will close due to saftey procautions. The ride surprisingly stays open in windy weather. If it's 15mph or above it will probaly be closed, if it's less than 15mph then it's probaly still going to remain open.

Trust me, you don't want to be on Kingda Ka when it's raining. I was on TTD when it was starting to sprinkle and it stung bad.

It was rushed together when they built it so it runs very poorly. Top Thrill Dragster use to have problems but now it is doing better so maybe Kingda Ka will be running well someday. They need to spray water on the launch cable constantly like Cedar Point since it gets so hot.

Kingda ka been running VERY well lately. 30 second dispatches all four trains. Six flags only puts the cream of the crop crew on it to insure excellence.

This is the first year I was there when it was actually open. They were running a ton of cars, the wait was only about 10 min.
