People love going to the amusement park for different reasons, but the main one is to feel an adrenaline rush. Going on a scary ride is both a thrilling and refreshing experience of living life on the edge.
But most rides are pretty docile in comparison to some. The five scariest attractions we're about to show you are truly for the adrenaline junkies. Who else would be that crazy to go on them?
500-feet? That's it? We're joking. If we were on this attraction, we would probably need to change our pants after. China has always been known to push the boundaries when it comes to extreme attractions, and this is undoubtedly one of them.
The beams you walk on are located at different distances, meaning, sometimes, you'll need to jump from one beam to another at an altitude of 200 meters. It may not sound that scary, but can you jump from beam-to-beam knowing there's a foggy abyss below you? One wrong move and down you go (well, not really, you are attached to a rope).
Vegas isn't just for testing your luck at the casino or lounging by the pool; it's a place where you can also live on the edge - literally. On the roof of the Stratosphere hotel, you'll find one of the terrifying rides in the world. Imagine sitting on a trolley that slides you into 264 meters of emptiness.
Yes. That's right, complete emptiness. No doubt, riders will get an amazing view of Las Vegas, but we doubt you'll be paying much attention while you're praying to survive.
CN Tower walk-around
If you're a fan of heights and views, then you're going to love this attraction. In Toronto, Canada, people can walk the iron walk-way around the CN tower. And when we're talking about it being high, it's really high - like 356 meters high. So people can easily admire 100-story skyscrapers below.
If you're not a fan of heights, don't do this attraction. The walk around the CN tower lasts a whopping 30-minutes. And for those who aren't height friendly, every minute will feel like a lifetime.
Most of us, when we hear the word 'rollercoaster,' don't think too much of it. Sure, they're thrilling, but a rollercoaster cannot be one of the scariest rides in the world. Well, that's where we're wrong. In Spain, there's a rollercoaster called 'Furious Bucko,' and it's pretty terrifying.
Riders feel the acceleration of 0 to 135 km/hr in just 3 seconds. For 850 meters, riders go through a rushing experience as the ride turns them upside down, taking them through tunnels and sharp twists.
Cooling tower free fall
You wouldn't expect a cooling tower to be anything other than a cooling tower. But it looks like in Johannesburg, South Africa; they decided to take an old 70-meter cooling tower and make it the highest free-fall attraction in the world. If you decided to take the plunge, you'd be falling 70 meters down.
Just to put that into perspective, that's a 20-story building. An elastic mesh will catch your fall - sounds super safe, right? Right? Don't worry, under the net are soft mattresses.
