So would you ride this? I definitely would.

Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey is opening a new ride this year called Zumanjaro Drop of Doom, and it's now the tallest drop ride in the world.

If you've never ridden a drop ride before, it's pretty simple to explain. You're taken up in the air, then dropped. Zumanjaro lifts you to 415 feet, and drops you at speeds around 90 MPH. Check out the promo video for it...


Keep in mind that the green track going around Zumanjaro in the video is another roller coaster, Kingda Ka, which flings you up and around at about 128 MPH. That honestly looks scarier to me!

For some perspective on what Zumanjaro will actually look like in action, here's a video from the previous record holder for tallest drop ride, Lex Luthor's Drop of Doom. It's only 400 feet tall.
