I should warn readers up front: if you're prone to dizziness or motion sickness, this isn't your video. I'm rarely bothered by roller coasters or heights, but just the video footage of this ride made me a little dizzy, as well as prompting me to mutter a few expletives and Hail Marys. Talk about seemingly straight up and down!
The ride, called the Fury 325, debuts March 28 at Carowinds Park in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Fury 325 is now the tallest Giga Coaster in the world. A Giga Coaster is defined as any roller coaster that has between a 300 and 400-foot drop and completes a full circuit. The Fury is 325 feet tall, tops out at 95 miles per hour and has an 81-degree drop. Hold me.
