Why are these roller coasters considered as terrifying amusement rides?
Let us take a look on five of the most deadly amusement rides in the world.
Number 5 – The Stratosphere Tower Insanity
This amusement ride which is located in Las Vegas is less of a ride and more of an adrenalin rush. It was opened back in 2005 at over 900 feet up in the air.
The Insanity Ride is the third highest thrill ride in the whole world. The ride basically dangles riders over the edge of the tower and makes the occupants feel as though they were about to fall off however it does stop just in time. It’s purpose is to maximize the fear level of the riders.
So if you are afraid of heights then maybe give this ride a skip.
Number 4 – King Dhaka
King Dhaka is located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey. This roller coaster is infact the tallest roller coaster in the world standing at 465 feet high.
The ride does shoot down its passengers up at speeds of 206 km/h in only 3.5 seconds before shooting them back down again however this time on the opposite side.
So if speed and height is something you enjoy, then maybe consider giving this ride a try as it will definitely satisfy thrill seekers.
Number 3 – The Sky Scream
This rollercoaster is from holiday Park in Germany. The ride has many flips and inversions and in total it’s just an all-around crazy ride as it contains all the elements to get your adrenaline pumping.
Due to the many turns and flips the ride does need to roll back a few times just to gain enough momentum to complete all the turns. At some point it even moves at a speed of 100 km/h which is just enough to cope with the 45 meter high ascent.
Number 2 – The Fahrenheit Rollercoaster
This rollercoaster is located in Hershey Park in Pennsylvania. It has the steepest drop amongst all rollercoasters with a 97 degree angle.
The ride does reach a maximum height of 121 feet high and throughout the ride there are numerous inversion loops and drops that are so steep riders can’t even see the track. So no matter who you are the ride drops will definitely give you goose bumps even if you’re one of
the bravest of riders.
Number 1 – The Superman Ride Of Steel
This rollercoaster is located at six flag amusement park. The ride does reach heights of above 200 feet high and it is even voted as one of the best rides in the United States. Throughout the ride, speeds of more than 123 km/h are reached with the occasional drop of over two hundred and twenty-one feet high along with ten seconds of absolute weightlessness. It’s common for riders to have wobbly legs after the ride is over due to the large drop.
Anyway those have been the most scary amusement rollercoaster rides.
