 » Qui est Ka ?  » se demande l’immense oiseau Garuda, plongé dans les frondaisons de l’arbre Rauhina. Ka est le nom secret de Prajàpati, le Géniteur, auquel les trente-trois dieux et les hommes innombrables doivent leur origine, mais Ka signifie aussi  » Qui ? « , et c’est la dernière question que l’on pose, quand toutes les autres ont été posées. Cependant, beaucoup d’éons devront d’abord s’écouler, beaucoup de mondes surgir et s’évanouir, en une suite de tourbillons dont l’œil est Ka lui-même. C’est ainsi qu’apparaissent les Deva, qui se battent contre ces autres dieux, les Asura, pour conquérir le suc enivrant du sona ; les Sept Voyants ; Siva, Brahmà, Visnu, avec leurs histoires entrecroisées, se réfléchissant d’une ère à l’autre ; le jeune Krsna et son cortège érotique de gardiennes de troupeaux, les gopi ; Krsna dans son âge mûr, qui gouverne les destinées de la guerre funeste du Mahàbhàrata ; et enfin, au beau milieu de notre âge, s’avance un prince qui abandonne la maison de son père et découvre un chemin de la libération qui n’avait jamais été foulé auparavant : le Bouddha. Dans l’esprit s’accomplit ce qui a commencé dans l’esprit. Pour répondre à la dernière question il faut traverser toutes les histoires. Et pour traverser toutes les histoires il faut se demander, comme il est arrivé à Garuda, qui est celui qui les accueille silencieusement : Ka.

On August 29, 2013, Six Flags Great Adventure officially announced Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom for the 2014 season. The new attraction was attached to the Kingda Ka coaster. The drop tower features three gondolas integrated into the existing structure which was also built by Intamin. Kingda Ka’s layout and experience is nearly identical to that of Top Thrill Dragster. Kingda Ka is located in the jungle-themed area of the park known as The Golden Kingdom. The ride portrays a mythical bengal tiger named after one that was housed in the nearby Temple of the Tiger attraction, an interactive exhibit that was closed in 2010.

The rear car has one row, while the rest have two. Each of Kingda Ka’s trains has an extra row of seat mounts. The panels could be removed for the installation of additional seats in the future. This modification would increase the capacity of each train from 18 to 20, and the hourly capacity of the coaster from 1400 to 1600 riders per hour. Kingda Ka’s station is prepared for this modification, with entrance gates for the currently-nonexistent row of seats.

Kingda Ka’s over-the-shoulder restraint system consists of a thick, rigid lap bar and two thin, flexible over-the-shoulder restraints. Because the over-the-shoulder portions of the restraint are not rigid, the hand grips are mounted to the lap bar. Kingda Ka’s station has two parallel tracks, with switch tracks at the entrance and exit. Each of the station’s tracks is designed to accommodate two trains, so each of the four trains can be operated from its own station. While all of the trains are mechanically identical and able to load and unload at each of the four individual station bays the original plan was for all trains to operate at the same time and for each train to load and unload at their own station.

A train may occasionally experience a rollback following a launch. A rollback occurs when the train fails to make it over the top of the tower and descends back down the side it was launched. Kingda Ka includes retractable magnetic brakes on its launch track to prevent a train from rolling back into the loading station. On June 8, 2005, a bolt failed inside a trough that the launch cable travels through.
