The Kingda Ka is the tallest roller coaster in the world with a height of 456 feet. It is also the fastest roller coaster in North America.

Here’s a youtube video:

You’ll leave the station going from 0 to 128 miles per hour in a jaw-dropping 3.5 seconds. Actually, there won’t even be time for your jaw to drop. You’ll be shooting up that impossible height so fast, you won’t even have time to think, so just hang on. It’s 90° straight up. And once you get to the top you’ll be plummeting right back down in a 270-degree spiral that is not recommended for wimps. There is very little that can prepare you for a drop of this intensity. You’ll top it off with a 129-foot camel hump. Well, how else did you think the King got around?

This relates to engineering because it has to be built to be able to reach 456 feet and be one of the fastest roller coaster.
