This coaster looks brilliant! with the massive air time hill and the same top hat as TTD but 15 feet higher and 8mph faster it looks superb!

Yes, It isn't going to be a race theme or what ever....
As you can see from artists impresions, it's going to be a Jungle theme! Hopefully it will look cool!!! :)

Well 5/7 Rocket coasters are themed to racing, Im glad Kingda Ka is going for some kind of originality...although its right next to a parking lot so I can't see it being completely true to the Artists impression.
