Roller Coasters are something that everyone can enjoy – unless you’re a pussy – and we always get excited here at Sick Chirpse when we gain wind of someone changing the game and innovating the genre.
Nothing could be more true of this new ride heading to Skyplex in Orlando in 2017 known as the Skyscraper. Not only is it the tallest roller coaster in the world it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It has elements of all the best roller coasters – drops, that inverted drop past 90 degrees that you get on Saw: The Ride, loops, corkscrews and pretty much everything else you could want in a ride.
It also seems to go on a really long time which is good as most roller coasters tend to be over far too quickly. It’s a bummer there isn’t a 570 foot drop anywhere on the ride, but hey you can’t have it all and that would probably make some people pass out. It looks like there are a number of healthy drops on it at least and to be honest they’re probably all the size of a regular roller coaster.
