  • Video Ride on the World's New Steepest Roller Coaster

    The new Takabisha roller coaster has a 141-foot drop and a 121-degree free-fall. It's at Fuji-Q Highland amusement park in Japan.

    It doesn't look too bad to me. I think the thing is that it doesn't look as high as it probably is. I find myself a lot more terrified on coasters built on hillsides, like some at Magic Mountain, or ones that dangle you over the side of something else very high. This coaster is basically built on flat ground, so it's not as scary looking.

      Beautiful coaster. Looks like a blast. Maybe one day I can head out there and give it a go. Pretty unique that they have that launch in the beginning.
      I hope Magic Mountain can get something like this one day.

        I really want to go to Japan and ride this. Too bad this coaster is a Fuji-Q Highland, one of the weirdest run parks ever. According to TPR's multiple visits, they've had nothing but problems with this park... the coasters shut down at the slightest hint of rain (and it rains 200+ days a year in Japan) and even then, the coasters and other rides all operate at odd hours. Nice weather is a rarity in that region of Japan, but while TPR was there last month, they lucked out and for once had sunny weather and actually had a good day at the park for a change.

            I love the fact that it climbs so painfully slowly up that 90 degree hill/cliff. And the it stops. Oh the agony!

            Of course the stoic camera man gets props for his silence.
