Could it be more difficult?

Searching for something else I stumbled across Kingda Ka, the new roller-coaster at Six Flags' New Jersey park. It will be the tallest and fastest of them all.... by a long way, when it opens.

That's the problem. When does it open? The website gives no clues. There's a video clip about the construction which shows that the main structure has been built. You would think that a press release might give details. There are plenty of downloadable high res images in the "Media Center", so they obviously want publicity, but the latest press release is 29 Sept 04!

OK, no problem, most websites are not up-to-date. Just ask the press office.

What press office? Nowhere on their website is there any contact info for press enquiries. In fact, a full-scale google search for any kind of press/pr activity on behalf of Six Flags yields nothing.

It would be easier to find information on 'area 51' than Six Flags. I've never encountered such a secretive organisation in the leisure industry!
