Here is an update for the tallest steel and wooden roller coasters I have been on to date:

Tallest Steel Roller Coaster: Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure (July 2018)
Tallest Wooden Roller Coaster: El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure (July 2018)

Now to only conquer the World's tallest wooden roller coaster, I will need to do a bit of travelling. :)

Well, I've conquered the great Ka so that would be my tallest steel.

Tallest (operating) wood would be El Toro.

However, I was fortunate to get ONE, and exactly one lap on the tallest wood ever built, Son of Beast, in mid-May 2009. About a month before it closed for good....

The line was insanely long I considered bailing multiple times, but thank goodness I endured the wait. What a clutch credit that was!

The next time I visited KI that year was late June, after it had closed.
