1. Takabisha

We start off this list with a 2011 Guinness World Record holder in Yamanashi, Japan for the steepest roller coaster in the world. If a 90 degree vertical drop terrifies you,  the 121 degrees beyond vertical drop on the Takabisha caves inwards, hurtling to the ground before going through a dive loop – the final of the seven inversions on this mega coaster. Although the steep drop is what got Takabisha famous, the attraction also contains numerous highlights. With a climatic plunge into darkness at the beginning, the Takabisha throws riders into bewilderment. Exiting the tunnel, you are propelled at a speed of 100km/h into an inverted top hat before going into a banana roll, a corkscrew and two airtime hills. The two and a half minute ride promises riders no respite from start to finish.
