The world’s tallest drop ride just opened at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J., US, where the inaugural batch of riders took the 415-foot plunge on the Fourth of July.

Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom – Engineers achieved monumental height by building the ride on the face of Kingda Ka, the tallest and fastest roller-coaster on record. Zumanjaro riders are strapped into gondolas, hauled up 41 stories, and left to dangle for a suspenseful moment before plummeting downward at speeds up to 90 miles per hour. The plunge takes about 10 seconds.
