The Takabisha roller-coaster is set to open at the Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park in Japan.  This is the 14th Guinness world record-breaking ride at this amusement park.


Nestled at the foot of Mount Fuji, the new track features a 141ft single vertical fall at 121 degrees, making it the steepest roller-coaster drop in the world.

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.

The Takabisha, which means “highflying car” runs over 0.6 miles of track and offers panoramic views of Mount Fuji for park-goers to appreciate in the 112 second hair-raising ride.

The attraction will fully open to the public on July 16.
