Six Flags Great Adventure plans expansion

JACKSON, N.J. -- Six Flags Great Adventure is planning the largest expansion in the 30-year history of its Jackson, N.J., theme park, turning it into an 11-acre resort destination that its owners will position as a competitor of Walt Disney World.

The centerpiece of the expansion will be Kingda Ka, the worlds tallest and fastest roller coaster, which will climb 45 stories high and accelerate from a stopped position to 128 mph in 3.5 seconds.
