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.)

  1. I rode this one at Nagashima Spaland twice in a row:

    I think it changed my life.

  2. Wow, I felt sick just watching that. I can’t handle even the baby roller coasters, though. On the 8th grade trip to Six Flags I spent the whole time playing carnival games and winning Pokemon stuffed animals.

  3. That’s nothing. You should see the log flume:

    Awww damn. It’s one minute too long for an effective YouTube redub.

  5. Guys, I’m just gonna go check out the hot dog stand over there. See you in a bit.

  6. That looks just like every ride I ever built in Roller Coaster Tycoon. I can let them know from experience what’s going to happen: one person is going to ride it once, throw up immediately, and then no one will ever ride it again because it “looks too scary”. The trick, Fuji-Q, is to erase the sidewalks near all the exits so no one can leave.

  7. “if you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. if you can, there is no need to worry about it. if you cannot do anything, then there is also no need to worry”

  8. Are the targets on the back of the seats for you to aim your barf at?

  9. Just think how much Hello Kitty paraphernalia will shake loose from riders’ pockets.

  10. Me during this video – ‘Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!”

    (No joke, I peed myself)

  11. “What, no? Of course I’m not scared of that stupid video! What do you think, I dropped that plate of mashed potatoes because my hands were drenched in sweat from watching that insane drop?! Ha, you’re so dumb!” – Me.

  12. I ain’t afraid of no rolly coaster.

  13. Do Japanese people not scream? Is that some corn-syrupy, global warming new genetic trait that I haven’t heard about yet? I even watched a few other videos filmed outside of the ride and you can hear wind and other noises, but no screaming. Balls out Japan!

  14. im just annoyed by the this modern trend of handy cam’ing roller coaster movies. ever since jj ambrams did rollercoasterfield it just seems redundant. we need to return to the core principles of of roller-coaster film making

  15. Weak! -Chet Haze.

  16. I like how they’ve designed it to slowly teeter ever nearer the edge, to let you contemplate your own dumb demise before you hurtle towards the earth at the speed of sound.
