Your life may change after sitting through one of these hair-raising rides
Thrill seekers are often in it for the amusement parks’ most jaw-dropping rides. We’re talking rickety roller coasters that climb uphill before plunging into crazy twists and turns that are certainly not for the faint-hearted. After scouring numerous Youtube vidoes, we sussed out seven of the best roller coaster ride that you need to kick off your theme park bucketlist:
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.
