The new “world’s steepest rollercoaster” will be in Japan

Rollercoasters are an interesting experience. Some like them so much that they travel all over the world in search for the thrill and adrenaline in most dangerous montagne-rousses. Others stop after the first experience in a rollercoaster from different reasons.

Developers all over the world try however to offer new and exciting – and of course attractive – rollercoasters. From a recent news we find out that Japan a new rollercoaster set to take the title of ‘world’s steepest rollercoaster’ from UK’s Flamingoland.

In exactly a month from now, on July 16th, the Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park will launch the Takabisha ride, “an attraction that includes seven major twists over 1000 metres of track, and a nerve-jangling drop of 43 metres“.

The Takabisha – “dominant” in English – “relies on a combination of gravity and a set of linear motors on the cars. These accelerate the coaster to speeds of 100kmph”.

The ride in this rollercoaster lasts just 112 seconds.

What do you say about that? Do you have what it takes to take a ride with the Takabisha?
