The World's Tallest Roller Coaster Will Make You Dizzy In All The Right Ways

The world's tallest roller coaster, The Skyscraper, is scheduled to open at Orlando's Skyplex in 2017, and it looks like it'll be a tower of goddamn terror. The coaster's track will wrap around a 535-foot-tall monolith, twisting riders through a downward spiral for four minutes with "no downtime."

Accurate visual representation of you on The Skyscraper

Along with being the tallest, it's also the...corkscrewiest?  US Thrill Rides founder Bill Kitchen:
"The unique design of the coaster means more incredible, heart-pounding inside and outside loops, dives, spirals and inversions in a vertical area than riders have ever before experienced."
It's hard to tell if it lives up to the hype without riding it, but we can already tell this much: If you cut together the first-person sections of this CGI demo and threw them up on an IMAX screen, someone would definitely puke.

Wish they would have went with a more original name like Big Ass Doom Coaster, or Tall As Shit but hey, you get it how you can.
