This Roller Coaster In Japan Is Pedal-Powered

 |  |  |  |  June 10, 2016

Imagine a roller coaster that has no motors or winches. Instead, you must use your brute strength to pedal your way along its rails. One that is four stories high, with no guard rail, and the only thing keeping you in your seat is a seat belt. Well imagine no longer. This amusement park ride actually exists in Japan, because Japan.

The Sky Cycle pedal-powered “roller coaster” is at the Washuzan Highland Amusement Park in Okayama City, Japan.  It is essentially an elevated, tracked bike path four-stories high. It’s still scary though. Sure, it doesn’t go fast and there are no crazy loops, or even hills, but bikes are just not meant to be that high up. So go home Japan, you’re drunk.

I bet people start un-clicking that seat belt and joy riding those rails. Because people are crazy.
