As the tallest rollercoaster in the world Kingda Ka shoots its riders 456 feet and 3 inches in the air in a vertical position. It goes 128 miles per hour (206 km/h) in 3.5 seconds.


This ride in the front seat is an incredible experience, such a rush. I loved it honestly. The theming is great, and it really doesn't get the credit it deserves. 9/10
TTD is better.

But this is still pretty dang good. I ride it about once a month or so but yeah TDD is better.

Comparisons to TTD are inevitable, so here it goes. For me, TTD easily wins this coaster war. I love to ride TTD again and again because it is so smooth. I had NO desire to ride KK more than once. One ride gave me a pretty good headache and slight nausea. I've never had those feelings on TTD - just pure exhilaration! The launch on KK is incredible, but the rest of the ride simply shakes too much. If they would fix the shaking, this would be so much fun. Also, TTD feels scarier because there's no OTSR.
