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 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.
