The new Takabisha roller coaster at the Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park in Japan can now boast it has the steepest drop of any ride in the world. The brand new coaster plummets 140 ft in a straight down drop. It’s seriously intense. A cameraman sat in front and recorded the ride so you can take an imaginary spin on the new Takabisha. The video is featured on Gawker.
In case you didn’t get a feel for the epic straight down drop, here is a video of the coaster from a bystanders point of view. Read more and see pictures of the beast of a ride at DailyMail.
