New for 2014, Great Adventure added a trio of 450-foot drop tower tracks to Kinga Ka's tower, making this the world's tallest drop ride.

Nothing is as good as tower of terror (theming) but this is a good drop ride. 8.5/10

I reviewed this for TPI last year and can add only that it continues to provide thrills but has experienced operational problems on numerous occasions. There has been a slight change since last season: i.e., whereas riders previously got a warning as to when the ride would drop by a slight rocking of the gondolas, when I rode it this season the gondolas dropped without any warning whatsoever and as I was unprepared, this created something of a whiplash effect. Still, as the tallest and fastest drop ride in existence as of 2015, Zumanjaro is worth riding for that reason alone.
