SkyCycle In Japan Might Be The Scariest Ride Ever…

Washuzan Highland Amusement Park features the SkyCycle, a unique roller coaster requiring passengers to pedal from beginning to end on side by side tandem bicycles. Though the course is simple, without any drops or loops, moving at a significantly slower rate than a normal roller coaster while suspended four stories above ground can be quite terrifying. While there are seat belts provided, there are no guard rails. We cannot say for sure, but we assume that the SkyCycle is in some ways an attempt to incorporate the elements of adventure travel that are popular in Brazil.

Take a look of the photos below and let us know if you would be so daring to hop on!
