Video Of The Week - World's Steepest Roller Coaster


133 Words 1-Minute Listen

Ever dreamt of riding a roller coaster that can take you straight up and drop you straight down? The recently opened Takabisha coaster at Japan's Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park promises to do just that and more!

Declared the World's steepest coaster by the Guinness World Records, it takes adventure seekers up 141ft. and then tosses them down at 62mph with a 121° freefall - Right into darkness! If that's not exciting enough, the ride also incorporates seven heart-stopping twists. What's incredible is that this entire ride takes a mere 112 seconds!

As you have probably guessed, while short, the trip is not cheap. A single ride on this monster roller coaster, which cost $37mm to construct, will set you back $12.50. But, thrill-seekers will agree that it is worth every penny!

        That's why I'm going to 6 flags for my birthday. But what is SCARY is I have to go on every ride there cause this is the first time I have been.

                Though it sounds fun, and looks fun, It's actually kind of bad compared to ejanika. (I probably spelled that wrong.) Most coaster enthusiasts would say it's just "okay." TMNT shellraiser is the same thing except higher, and that is in new jersey. So the only real reason to go to Japan is because of ejanika, really. so you're not missing out on much, really.
