Roller coasters have come a long way since the first one in 1884.
But at what point do we say it's "too far"? Roller coasters today involve death-defying drops and anti-gravity stunts.
We did some research and found some of the most intense roller coasters in the world. And because technology is so awesome, there's even POV videos available. If you're not too motion sick, that is.
Take a look!
1. Wicked Twister, Cedar Point
It's the tallest and fastest inverted roller coaster in the world, standing at 215ft. The ride lasts 40 seconds and travels at 72MPH.
2. Shivering Timbers, Michigan Adventures
Shivering Timbers is the 6th largest wooden roller coaster in the world. It was voted the best wooden roller coaster three of the last 5 years, so ya it's pretty good.
3. Goliath, Six Flags Illinois
It's a wooden coaster and it's terrifyingly huge. The aptly named Goliath broke three records: the longest drop at 180ft, the steepest drop at 85°, and the fastest speed at 72 miles per hour. It also inverts twice.
4. Formula Rossa, Abu Dhabi
Reaching 150MPH, this coaster's claim to fame is being the fastest in the world. It may not go upside down, but it's sheer speed will blow you away.
5. Leviathan, Canada's Wonderland
It's the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Canada, and the eighth tallest and fastest in the world. Leviathan is considered a "giga" coaster, being over 300ft tall. It stretches almost 5500ft, giving you plenty of time to scream your brains out.
