The newest addition to Six Flags: Great Adventure in New Jersey looks absolutely insane.

It’s a 415-foot free fall called the Drop of Doom that pauses at the top for a few seconds before dropping back down at 90 miles per hour.

And if the aerial views aren’t amazing enough, Drop of Doom is located inside the record-breaking peak of Kingda Ka, the world’s tallest rollercoaster.

Kingda Ka races by as you reach the top.

This adrena-gasm will be the world’s tallest free fall and is scheduled to be open May of 2014.
