If you think you’ve been on some crazy thrill rides, nothing will likely compare to Japan’s ‘Takabisha’ roller coaster. The ride is set to open at the Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park in a few days in Yamanash, Japan. As you may have been able to realize from these gravity-defying shots and video coverage, the Takabisha is the world’s steepest roller coaster, dropping riders on a vertical freefall of 121 degrees.

Riders on the Takabisha can expect to experience weightlessness while taking a sharp dive down 141 ft at speeds of nearly 62 mph, or 100 km/hour. The miraculous coaster cost an astounding $40 million to construct, and riders can expect to pay nearly $12 to ride it. The Takabisha is a sight to see and a thrill to be had for daredevils everywhere.
