Part 3.1 Kingda Ka pics and review
We got into the parking lot at 10:30am and much to my amazement Kingda Ka was running
so needless to say that was gonna be our first ride since it was running. Only running 2 trains (1 side) line was to the end of the first switchback past the fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo and it took a little under an hour. Waiting in line for this thing is like holding a time bomb in your hand. you know it is gonna go down for the day sometime.........but when? Surprisingly it ran all day till storms and rain closed it down at 4pm. We left about 5:30 so I do not know if it re-opened.
I rode TTD in 2003 and thought it was Awesome although short. So I was very interested to see how different these 2 really were.
Me and Erin rode in the Back car, Brakes drop, We launch and not even halfway down the runway and I have had the crap kicked out of me! WE ARE GOING STRAIGHT! The runway seemed to go on forever but the launch was in like 3 seperate pulses, very odd to me.
Brake up top sucked! no Airtime, then you get a karate chop to the neck going through the spiral, then the most pointless hill ever!
I would have much rather gone through a straightaway at 120mph into brakes.
I do not understand how the ride could be so rough unless SFGA does not take care of the chasis or something. Storm Runner does so much more and it is not this bad.
At least I got to ride it and got the elusive credit.
It is a gorgeous structure though and the whole area was themed Very well.
Oh yeah, aparently it is Illeagal to take pictures of Ka in the rain from the parking lot. I had a security guy Yell at me (dead serious)
The last picture is posted as a big FU
