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.
