This Pedal Powered SkyCycle Rollercoaster in Japan Is Amazing


This has to be one of the craziest rollercoasters in the world and for once it's not because of the crazy loop the loops, sheer drops or because of a record breaking plummet from some ridiculous height. This time it's because the rollercoaster is powered by those who ride it.

Appropriately named the Skycycle each carriage features two pedal bikes in tandem complete with front baskets for storing items and brakes just like a real bike. It's certainly a one of a kind experience as there are no safety rails and the carts are completely open. Oh and did we mention that it's four stories high as well! scary stuff.
