Video From World’s Tallest Giga Coaster May Induce Vomiting [Video]
When I was a kid, I once waited in line for at least an hour and half to ride a roller coaster. I was excited, but also terrified. And at the last minute I chickened out.
When it was my turn, I burst into tears and totally refused to get on. I'm sure my Dad was quite pleased, after waiting all that time.
So, yeah, roller coasters freak me out. Even videos of roller coasters freak me out. And this video of the world's largest giga coaster in North Carolina, from a rider's point of view, kind of makes me want to throw up.
Apparently, a giga coaster is a type of roller coaster with a height or drop that ranges from 300 feet to 399 feet and completes a full circuit.
Carowinds theme park in Charlotte tested out its giga coaster this week.
Fury 325 debuts this spring, and it is being called the world's tallest and fastest giga coaster -- standing 325 feet tall and incorporating an 81-degree first drop.
