A New Jersey Roller Coaster Is One of America’s Most Iconic
A fairly new (by most standards) roller coaster that lives right here in New Jersey is one of the top iconic roller coasters in the entire country, according to one website!
Thrillist has listed their top 15 "Most Iconic Roller Coasters in America."
And Six Flags Great Adventure's Kingda Ka made the list!
Here's what Thrillist had to say about Kingda Ka:

As if people from New Jersey needed more reasons to brag about being from Jersey, since 2005 their state has been home to world's the longest, tallest steel roller coaster. This accelerator coaster holds you at the bottom for a painfully long time -- so long you begin to wonder whether the ride has malfunctioned. Just as you're wondering whether you ought to phone someone, you're shot back into your seat, and immediately up a terrifying 456ft lift. Just as quickly, you're shot straight down 418ft, at speeds reaching 128mph. It's hard to say what's scarier -- that anticipation itself or the face-peeling speeds -- but insofar as knowing how to thrill your brain, this is the best coaster in America.
