Sit Front Row on the World’s Steepest Roller Coaster

13 Jul

Watching this made me feel bad for all the death coasters I used to make my guests ride on in Roller Coaster Tycoon (did anyone else build roller coasters that just went off a cliff halfway through?  Am I a psychopath?)  I’ve been on my share of roller coasters in my day, including Kingda Ka at Six Flags which is the highest rollercoaster in the U.S.  Well of course Japan went ahead and did something completely ridiculous and what Americans weren’t smart enough to figure out and made the steepest roller coaster in the world.  Even worse, this thing is a complete mindfuck.  You start off in the pitch black, thinking most likely you are in for a space mountain like glory ride, and you are suddenly thrust into constant loops and absurd drops.  Then you stop, and it looks like you are done and about to get let off, and then boom, you get taken basically straight vertically  skyward, left to ponder whether you are going to live or die at the top, and then proceed to be dropped more than straight down.  I’m going to continue to sit in the comfort of my home watching roller coaster videos, but if anyone wants to travel to Japan and ride this, go for it.
