Whoops a Daisy - Japan stlye

At the foot of Japan’s mount Fuji is Fuji-Q, home to many wondrous roller coasters, including the newly ordained steepest coaster in the world: The Takabisha. This coaster has a massive drop at 141 feet, where it achieves vertical fall at around 121º. Now that may not be the highest peak for a coaster, but that 121º really matters when you go over the edge.
Don’t believe me? Just watch the video. It is far more intense than I was expecting. My stomach dropped and I am sitting comfortably in an office chair. The big drop comes up about halfway, but don’t worry — you won’t miss it.

Done nothing for me but I only use a 15inch monitor, Surprised the person managed to keep hold of the camera without dropping It, I would love to get my girlfriend on something like that, I would probably end up deaf  though Cool
Edit, Just had an evil thought, If I can get her on something like that I'm going to say lady's first so she gets on first, Then when she's strapped In I'm going to wave bye bye to her and I'm going to run for cover Grin Grin Grin

Problem with 'coaster rides' they are over so quickly.
In SWMBO's opinion at 2.4km in length 'the ultimate' at lightwater valley is still one of the best.
