Takabisha Roller Coaster opens in Japan

Don't look down! Japanese theme park set to take the title of 'world's steepest rollercoaster' from UK's Flamingoland

The Takabisha at Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park opened to the public for the first time On July 16th, coinciding with it being recognised by Guinness World Records as the Steepest roller coaster made from steel.

The ride, which lasts just 112 seconds, has a stomach-churning inclination of 121 degrees over 3.4 m at its steepest point.
The roller coaster's highest tower stands at 43 m (141 ft 0.91 in) above ground.

Upon descending from this peak, the carriages enter the steepest drop at 29 m (95 ft 1.73 in) above ground, requiring a mere 0.38 seconds to complete the record-breaking stretch of the ride.

The Takabisha, which translates as “high flying car”, runs for over 0.6 miles of track, and includes seven major twists, with scenic views of the nearby Mount Fuji for passengers who can manage to keep their composure.
Costing an eye-watering 3 billion yen (around £23million) to build, Takabisha will grab the title of 'ride with the steepest incline' from a British attraction, Mumbo Jumbo at Flamingoland in the UK.

 The popular Yorkshire theme park has held the record since July 2009. Mumbo Jumbo, which cost £5m to design and build, has an incline of 112 degrees and puts riders under a force of 4Gs, similar to those experienced by fighter pilots.

Fuji-Q is no stranger to records - this will be the 14th Guinness-recognised mark set by the park.

However, when it comes to speed, the world's fastest rollercoaster is still Formula Rossa, which can be found at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. This speeds riders around its tracks at 240kmph.
