Later this month, at the Fuji-Q Amusement Park in Japan, some scuba divers and April O’Neal will be unveiling the world’s craziest coaster, the Takabisha, that starts with a vomit-inducing 121 degree drop. Ninety degrees? That’s for pussies.
Mike Nawrot and Romain Teil of MIT’s East Campus constructed a fully-functional wooder roller coaster track in just two weeks for Rush 2010. They named it the “Reverse Cowgirl.” Yeah, I’d totally ride the Reverse Cowgirl.
Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California recently unveiled its Green Lantern themed rollercoaster, which I guess is just named “Green Lantern” or something. I like rollercoasters from afar— from up close, I usually pick the really wussy rollercoasters. Nothing like this bad boy. This thing makes me ill just looking at it. If there’s any roller coaster experts out there, are there any other coasters like this with the seats on a pivot like that? That’s pretty wicked.
A group of people at Adventure Island theme park in Essex, UK raised £22,000 for breast cancer research by riding a rollercoaster naked. Too bad it was mainly old people. NSFW version after da jump.
