Well it looks like KK is going to be down for awhile. Here is the lastest report from the Six Flags website:
Dear Valued Guest:
Six Flags Great Adventure's Kingda Ka roller coaster is not currently in operation. We are working diligently to bring the ride back in operation as soon as possible. However, we do expect it will to be closed for several weeks.
We realize that our guests' expectations for this record breaking coaster are especially high. We apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this temporary closure may cause.
Please check here for updates on Kingda Ka. As soon as we have determined the specific date it will reopen, we will post details.
Until then, we hope you will enjoy all of the other great entertainment our park has to offer, with over 60 rides and attractions, including our new Golden Kingdom section featuring Balin's Jungleland for youngsters and a one-of-a-kind tiger show, 6 other new shows, the world's largest drive-through safari outside of Africa, and one of America's best water parks at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. Six Flags Great Adventure offers an enormous entertainment experience for our guests.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Vice President and General Manager,
Six Flags Great Adventure, Wild Safari and Hurricane Harbor
