Get Ready For The World’s Tallest Roller Coaster

Mankind has always strived to the biggest, boldest and baddest thing that they can. Such lofty endeavors gave us things like the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Spring Temple Buddha in China and the world’s tallest thermometer in Baker, California. Now, a crew of engineers and builders want to break the world record for the world’s largest roller coaster with a ride called the Skyscraper.

US Thrill Rides, an amusement park design company based out of Orlando, Florida, announced plans to build their terrifying new ride that would break the world record for the tallest roller coaster in the world. The ride would take eight brave passengers 500 feet into the air before dumping them out on a track and letting gravity make them utter curse words that mankind hasn’t invented yet. When the Skyscraper is completed in 2017, it will hold the new world record for the tallest coaster in the world by topping the current record holder Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure, which stands at a puny 456 feet.  I mean really, 456?  Why not just put people on a diaper change table while you’re at it?

An official for the roller coaster firm said the entire experience would last a total of four minutes and the track is designed to spit the riders into one thrill drop or inversion after the next giving them virtually no “down time.” If that’s true, then they are probably eligible for some other records like the longest sustained urination and the highest elevation vomit between the sky and the ground. We hope there’s an awning over the people waiting in line.
