This Pedal-powered Roller Coaster Takes Riders 590 Feet in the Air

In Japan’s Washuzan Highland amusement park, daredevils will find a roller coaster you peddle to control some 590 feet off of the ground.

There might not be any loops or drops on the Sky Cycle, but riders will be peddling from dizzying heights on carts that come with just a seatbelt — no guard rails.

The attraction overlooks the islands that sit on the Seto Inland Sea and provides breathtaking, 360-degree views of sights like the city of Okayama and the Great Seto Bridge. Each cart has two seats and a basket for you to put your belongings in, if you dare.

Japan is no stranger to out-of-the-box attractions, from creating the world’s first hot tub rollercoaster to opening spas where you can bathe in ramen.
