    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.

  • On August 29th, 2014, Six Flags Great Adventure announced Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom, the world's tallest  drop ride. Located on the face of Kingda Ka, the world's tallest coaster, the ride takes riders up 415 feet up to the top on one of 3 orange towers, where they will pause before dropping at over 90 miles per hour. A teaser video from Six Flags Great Adventure can be seen below: 

  • On August 23rd, 2013, GadvOnline member "jdc12192" found new supports laying next to Kingda Ka. The similarity in color to Kingda Ka's main tower supports backed up the strong rumors that a drop tower located on Kingda Ka was being added to the park in 2014. The supports would later be added before construction of Zumanjaro's 3 drop towers was started. 

  • Safari Off-Road Adventure opened up to members of the media on May 25, 2013. The addition was the largest in park history, adding 350 acres of land to the park(and thus making it the world's largest park at 510 acres). A fleet of retired military trucks brings passengers around the former drive-through attraction to see the animals close-up in a way never previously allowed in the old days.

  • After one season of waiting for SkyScreamers elaborate lighting package, it finally came. Starting in the 2013 season, when the sun went down, the lights went up! Along with this, the soundtrack changed to the Fright Fest theme at night, making it a must-ride for those wandering the park at night.
