Video: The Takabisha: World’s Steepest Rollercoaster

In July of 2011, The Takabisha, the world’s steepest rollercoaster was completed at Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park. Riders are subjected to a 141 foot freefall at 121 degrees. Below is a time lapse of its construction as well as a video from the front row. Hang on to your lunch!

“The ride starts with a sudden drop into pitch black darkness. It then does a 360-degree roll and the car is launched down a long tunnel at over 60 miles per hour. After a few loops, the cars reach a chain lift hill that carries the cars up to 141 feet. After slowly creeping forward, the car gets ready for its 121-degree, beyond-vertical drop. There are a few more loops and inversions, and the ride ends in just two minutes.” –
