I took off a week and used the time to do some traveling. There were a few things that I wanted to do in the New York and New Jersey area.
I went and saw a ballgame at Yankee Stadium before the new one opens. Lots of history, and it was nice to sit and have a dog and watch some baseball
I then made my way down to Atlantic City and pulled some slots and walked the boardwalk. I left with a few less dollars in my pocket. :)
The grand daddy part of the trip was riding Kingda Ka at Six Flags in Jackson New Jersey. It's the worlds tallest and fastest roller coaster. You go 0 to128MPH (206 kph) in 3.5 seconds and then are launched up 456 feet (139 meters). It's quite something and I rode it 3 times. The picture below does not do justice to the size of this coaster.
I also loved El Toro, a wooden roller coaster with a 76 degree drop. It goes over 70MPH (113 kph) and is excellent.
