  • On March 21, 2014, Six Flags Great Adventure showed off the construction progress of Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom. At this point, the ride was halfway completed, with the orange track rising 200 feet into the air.The track would end up being completed before the season started, finishing on April 1, 2014.

  • In order to help support the additional weight and stress that this year's new Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom addition will add to the structure of Kingda Ka, additional supports have been added on the backsides of the Kingda Ka tower.This was shown off in a February 17th Facebook post by Six Flags Great Adventure which shows off the new supports of the tower, as well as the orange track pieces that grace the face of the tower.

  • In one of the first steps for preparing for the vertical construction of Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom, guide wires were added to the tower to lift crews when needed. This was found when the park posted a picture to their Facebook page on January 31, 2014 that showed off the construction process needed to build a ride of this caliber in this environment.

    On September 24th, 2013, Six Flags Great Adventure uploaded a photo of new supports arriving at the park for the construction of Zumanjaro. The supports would go on to replace some of te supports on the main Kingda Ka tower and be put in lace before construction on Zumanjaro's 3 orange towers would begin.
