The Yabafo building in Osaka, Japan is slated to be the first of its kind in the world to feature its own built in free fall ride.

Due to open in December, this is scheduled to give up to six persons an amazing view of the city before, dropping them an average of 22 meters a second, and scaring them half to death, this is one hell of a way to get from top to bottom.

"Yabafo will be integrated into an exterior wall of Osaka's 12-story namBa H!PS entertainment complex scheduled to open in December," PinkTentacle said. "From 74 meters (240 feet) up, the 6-person ride will provide passengers a panoramic view of the city before dropping them 60 meters (200 feet) down the side of the building."

If there was a coolest building in the world award, this building would certainly deserve it. Stats for Building-Mounted Freefall Ride Trending: Older & Mild
