Do you have a plan for the next holiday? Maybe theme park is the best option for the family holiday. We can find amazing games in this place. Roller coaster is an amazing game inside theme park. This time I’ll share something great about roller coaster. If we heard about roller coaster, we may have a bad experience to this game. Even before we try this game, we have a bad imagination. If you love something “surprise” and pump your adrenaline, I thought roller coaster is one of good option. One good recommendation for you is Takabisha roller coaster in Japan. From this hub, I’ll take you a short tour in Japan (country of Cherry Blossoms). The takabisha, in English is “dominant” as the world’s steepest roller coaster, the exactly place is located in Japan's Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park. This is a new rollercoaster in a Japanese resort town beneath Mount Fuji, beautiful scenery in the shadow of Mount Fuji in Yamanas.
With seven features of the main bend and vertical lines along the 141 feet on the angle of 121 degrees. Takabisha rider will slide on the track at speeds of 100 miles per hour. Roller-coaster lovers will also get amazing experience when they lost the weight during the coaster swooped down on the mountains. Takabisha took the idea from Mumbo Jumbo at Flamingoland in the UK which has vertical tracks about 98 feet and it has a 112 degree dip.
Takabisha ride will feel the stomach-flipping sensation in the shadow of Mount Fuji in Yamanash. This sensation will repeatedly again and again along over 1000 metres of track, and a nerve-jangling drop of 43 metres. Don’t worry, the beauty views of Mount Fuji can still be enjoyed in seconds-112. Takashiba Rollercoaster has a system by relying on a combination of gravity and a set of linear motors on the train.
This roller coaster has been listed as the world's steepest roller coaster by the Guinness Book of World Records. How about the cost to make this roller coaster? Takashiba roller coaster need the cost about ¥3 billion or about £23 millions. Don’t ever think that this roller coaster will bring visitors in a super high speed. Because though it has a very high level of steepness, but Takabisha wasn't the fastest roller coaster. Just for information, the fastest roller coaster records still hold by Formula Rossa, which can be found at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. This roller coaster has a speed about 240kmph.
