World’s Tallest Roller Coaster Coming to Orlando

Plans are currently underway to build the world's tallest roller coaster in the city of Orlando, Florida, scheduled to open in 2017.

Fittingly titled, "The Skyscraper," the coaster track spirals up and down the side of a 535-foot-tall observation tower.

"The unique design of the coaster means more incredible, heart-pounding inside and outside loops, dives, spirals and inversions in a vertical area than riders have ever before experienced," says Bill Kitchen, founder of Orlando-based US Thrill Rides, which designed the Skyscraper.

The coasters board riders at the bottom of the tower, then make their way to the top before allowing gravity to take control.

The Skyscraper is part of a $250 million entertainment complex planned for Orlando's International Drive called Skyplex, which will also include an indoor theme park.
