Attention to all insatiable thrill seeker, here’s your next destination – World’s steepest roller coaster (Takabisha) located at the Fuji-Q Highland theme park in Fujiyoshida Yamanashi Japan.
It was listed in the Guinness World Record book as the world’s steepest roller coaster. A heart-pounding experience that warms you up a little bit at the beginning. With slow and steady speed (which is one of a kind of torture where you’ll think what if it stops), it brings you to a new height level, 141ft where it is the perfect point to enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful view of Mt Fuji if you manage to calm down. You’ll be rushing down at 100kmph after passing through the highlighted 121-degree angle.
It has seven inversions waiting for you in front, and the whole ride lasts for 112 seconds. This is not only the world’s steepest roller coaster but also the longest ever built by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides.
This project costs an eye-watering 3 billion yen to make, which is equivalent to around 28 million USD. It wins the title of “roller coaster ride with the steepest incline” from British attraction, Mumbo Jumbo at Flamingoland in the United Kingdom that has 112-degree angle.
Although it now holds the record for its steepness, it is still kinda long way behind the fastest, which is the Formula Rossa in Abu Dhabi that holds the record at 150mph.
