Take a Spin on the World's Steepest Roller Coaster [Video]
Jul 11th, 2011, 5:58 pm
At the foot of Japan’s mount Fuji is Fuji-Q, home to many wondrous roller coasters, including the newly ordained steepest coaster in the world: The Takabisha. This coaster has a massive drop at 141 feet, where it achieves vertical fall at around 121º. Now that may not be the highest peak for a coaster, but that 121º really matters when you go over the edge.
Don’t believe me? Just watch the video. It is far more intense than I was expecting. My stomach dropped and I am sitting comfortably in an office chair. The big drop comes up about halfway, but don’t worry — you won’t miss it.
