WORLD'S STEEPEST ROLLER-COASTER IN JAPAN

Japan’s Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park has unveiled its 14th Guinness world record-breaking ride – the Takabisha roller-coaster. Nestled at the foot of Mount Fuji, the new track is nearly two miles long and features seven major twists and a stomach-churning 141 feet single vertical fall at 121 degrees, making it the steepest roller-coaster drop in the world.

Takabisha riders will be hurtled around the track at 62 miles per hour, meaning that the ride, will last just 112 seconds and can experience a split second of weightlessness as they nosedive down the mountainous drop.

Costing three billion yen (£23 million) to build, the Takabisha steals the title from Mumbo Jumbo in Yorkshire, which features a 98ft drop at 112 degrees. This speed-rides around its tracks at 150mph.
