Amusement park 'Six Flags' is building the 'world’s tallest drop ride'.

Called the 'Zumanjaro Drop of Doom', it will be ready to ride at New Jersey's Six Flags Great Adventure next year.

It will “hoist riders 415 feet into the sky, twice as high as the Statue of Liberty, and rocket them back to Earth at 90mph while Kingda Ka trains launch directly toward them at speeds of up to 128 mph," said the company in a press release.

'Kingda Ka' is the world’s tallest roller coaster, and the new ride will be built right in the middle of this one for double the adrenaline rush.

The teaser video below will make your heart race, but in a good or bad way? You decide.
