The Future of Roller Coasters?









I came across these pictures on a tech blog entitled, "5 Roller Coasters You Probably Shouldn't Ride" It is The Skycycle at Washuzan Highland Park in Okayama, Japan. Flintstones or Jetsons? If you disregard the enormous amount of carbon emmissions that it took to build the steel tracks and the obvious fact that most Americans: a) can't fit their large rear ends on bicycle seats and b) can't peddle through the average fast food drive-thrus, it may not be a viable option.

...and I always thought it was the fish-based diet of the Japanese that had them living better and longer.

I rode some cool pedal-powered rides hosted by Cyclecide at the Coachella Festival, including these:

But nothing like a rollercoaster! That's awesome.
