We first heard about the Skyscraper in June, but we now have a computer-rendered video showing exactly what a ride on the world’s tallest roller coaster will be like. It’s not for the faint of heart.
The 570-foot-tall Skyscraper will be a part of a new complex being built on the corner of International Drive and Sand Lake Road called Skyplex. It is expected to open in 2016. The Skyscraper will be 570 feet tall and will feature more than 10 inversions. There will also be a Skyplex observation deck at the top of the structure, offering views 535 feet from the ground.
Watch this ride-through and see if it’s something you’ll be brave enough to ride.
