What is the scariest amusement park ride you have ever been on? Is it one that spins? Or maybe it’s one that goes really high into the sky, then drops you back down to ground level in a matter of seconds. Well, let us introduce you to the Japanese SkyCycle. It is probably the world’s most terrifying amusement park ride. It’s located in Japan at the Okayama Prefecture Brazilian Washuzan Highland Park. It’s very slow-moving, which probably makes this ride even more terrifying. You actually sit in a little rusty basket high up on a metal track, and the reason it is slow-moving is because you are the one powering the basket along the track. There is not a motor of any kind, so the speed you go is highly dependent on you, the rider. Just wait until you see this terrifying Japanese SkyCycle.
Here is a picture of the Japanese SkyCycle. It is located at the Okayama Prefecture Brazilian Washuzan Highland Park.
The SkyCycle is made up of a metal frame with pedals that are operated by two riders.
This looks pretty terrifying when you consider that the only thing holding you in is a small seat belt and a rusty metal frame, high above the ground.
The faster you pedal, the faster you go. But if you are slow at pedaling, this ride may seem to last a life time.
There are no safety bars keeping you from falling over the edge, so you must stay seated at all times.
The view is pretty amazing though. You just have to get over the fact that if a strong breeze comes along, you might fall off of the SkyCycle.
I don’t know if I would be willing to ride over a track that is overgrown with vegetation.
Some areas don’t look too high up, but this is not one of those areas. Do you see the rust on the track and the supports also?
If you can get over the terrifying ride, the view up there is pretty amazing. The entire park is located in an area that overlooks the Seto Island Sea, and on this ride you do get a breathtaking panoramic view.
To see how this ride looks in person, watch the video below:
I honestly can’t say that I would want to ride on this ride. I’m sure the views are amazing and worth it, but my fear of heights would leave me shaking and crying rather than truly enjoying what it has to offer.
