World's Tallest Roller Coaster First Demo Video

This is exactly the sort of thing we'd have loved to have built on Theme Park.

Orlando already boasts its fair share of amazing theme parks, but in 2017 it will reclaim the honour of hosting the world's tallest roller coaster, when Skyscraper is built at the brand new Skyplex attraction - and now they've released the first demo video of just what a ride will look like.

The 'Polarcoaster' will stand 569 feet tall, beating the current record holder, Kingda Ka in New Jersey, by over 100 feet. It'll be over 5,000 feet in length, with a single ride lasting a full 3 minutes.

Watch the impressive video and start counting down to the opening in a couple of years.

Oh, and probably best to watch before, rather than after, you've had your lunch.
