1. Takabisha at Fuji-Q Highland in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan
This roller coaster is 43m (141 ft.) high, it has a total 1,000 m (3, 300 ft.) length and 100km/h speed. This coaster is considered to be the steepest one in the world. The ride begins by a spectacular drop into pitch black darkness and into a heartline roll and then into a tunnel with stunning 100 kilometers per hour and directly into a large inverted top hat. Next is some banana roll, then a corkscrew element (helix), and additionally, two airtime hills. Finally, at the very end, this roller coaster has a beyond vertical drop of 121°. The entire ride lasts less than 2 minutes.
2. Gravity Max at Lihpao Land in Houli District, Taichung, Taiwan
This roller coaster is anything but plain and ordinary. Rightfully it is placed on our number two sweet spot. It starts by pulling up the train up to a horizontal platform where you get to stay approximately 15 seconds before the entire train tilts in a complete vertical state. SHOCKING AND DRAMATIC! Then the train rushes into a tunnel with an impressive speed, turns for a whopping 180 degrees and then it enters a vertical loop. This roller coaster is also known as the Cliffhanger.
3. Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey
This roller coaster is the fastest roller coaster in North America and the tallest one in the world with an impressive upside-down U-shaped track as high as 45 stories, or should we say 466 ft.
At a first sight, this will seem boring but wait until you reach the top and you will get there in no more than 10 seconds and be prepared for a 90 degrees drop and after that a 270-degree spiraling with great speed! Super exciting!
The entire ride lasts only 25 seconds, but don't be fooled, it will be a ride that you will remember!
