If the Battlestar Galactica in Universal Studios Singapore seems boring to you, then maybe you need something else. You might want to try the Takashiba at the Fuji-Q Highland amusement park in Japan. Takashiba is the world’s steepest roller coaster which accelerates to 100 km/h. It has 43m drop and a 121-degree freefall. It’s pretty sick and makes the Battlestar Galactica a piece of cake!
The ride costs $12.50 and takes 112 seconds to finish. Fuji-Q Highland spent $37 million in the development of Takashiba. Here’s the video of a press preview. Damn, sick!
Watching the clip above, I can feel the muscles on my neck tighten. I just can’t imagine how it would feel riding the Takashiba.
Here’s another video from the off ride.
Right now, I’m still happy with the Battlestar Galactica. No thanks, Takashiba.
