The Euthanasia rollercoaster kills with thrills
Designed by Julijonas Urbonas, a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Art in London, the Euthanasia coaster, as the name suggests isn’t a ride you’re expected to ride more than once.

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.
