 Get your barf bag ready — the world’s steepest roller coaster will be unveiled July 16th in Japan’s Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park.

The ride, which has a 121-degree free-fall and dramatic 43-meter drop, made the Guinness Book of World Records as the roller coaster with the world’s sharpest incline, according to The Daily Mail.

The roller coaster cost a whopping $37 million to build and exceeds the 112-degree free-fall of the former “steepest roller coaster” title holder — the UK’s Mumbo Jumbo roller coaster at Flamingoland.

Although the roller coaster is located near Mount Fuji, intrepid thrill-seekers will barely have time to glance at the scenery, as the ride lasts only about 112 seconds.

Check out this cool time-lapse video of the coaster’s construction, with Mount Fuji in the background.
