THE WORLD’S STEEPEST roller-coaster has been unveiled – with the drop measuring a staggering 141 feet.

The Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park, located at the base of Mount Fuji, boasts the Guinness World Record-breaking Takabisha roller-coaster. Thrill-seekers on the ride experience a single vertical drop of 141ft at 121 degrees, reports the Telegraph.

The Japanese roller-coaster, which coast 3 billion yen (€26 million) to build, has knocked Yorkshire’s Mumbo Jumbo ride off the top spot to officially become the world’s steepest roller-coaster, reports the Mirror.
