World’s Steepest Rollercoaster Is A Bit Much

On July 16th, Japan’s Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park will be unveiling this roller coaster, “Takabisha.” And, please, Japan, just let me say: No thanks! I am fine. No thank you on this one. It includes a 121° freefall, making it the steepest rollercoaster in the world. And I’m certainly not NOT a fan of rollercoasters, I like rollercoasters, but my goodness! There’s no way you’re not going to die when you ride that rollercoaster. And dying because you wanted to ride a rollercoaster is maybe the worst reason for you to have died. The second worst reason is maybe that you wanted to cross the street faster. Not to put any blame on the rollercoaster rider, but just, you know, in hindsight, for the person who died. That’s probably the worst! And, god, what a scary death! All I can think about is death when I watch this video. I’ll have to watch this one like a million times before I can even go outside today. I feel terrible. (Via Reddit.)
