World’s scariest rollercoasters…
These are not for the faint hearted..
1. Kingda Ka – Six Flags, New Jersey, USA
This ride hits a top speed of 128 mph and actually tilts to a full 90 degree angle, meaning you’ll be holding on to the seat of your pants. Literally.
2. Gravity Max – Taiwan
The train gets locked onto a section of track, the track is tilted 90 degrees, locks into the next part of track, and RELEASE! You’ll find it in Lihpao land in Taiwan.
3. Formula Rossa – UAE
It’s the fastest rollercoaster in the world clocking up an impressive 149 MPH in 4 seconds! You’ll find it at Ferrai World in Abu Dhabi. The best bit? It feels as if you’re sitting in an actual Ferrari when up at the very front.
4. Intimidator 305 – Virginia, USA
The steep incline at the start immediately lets you know that you’re in for one of the scariest rollercoaster rides ever – the thrills don’t let off at any stage during the ride.
5. Steel Dragon – Japan
This is the world’s longest rollercoaster since opening in 2000, which means you’ll be in for a full 3 minutes of twists and turns rather than a typical 45 second ride.
6. Sky Scream – Germany
This unique rollercoaster gets straight to the action straight away and sends you on up-and-down twists in a pendulum-style fashion. Not for the faint hearted.
7. Takabisha – Yamanashi, Japan
