2 of 14

Where: Nagashima
Spa Land in Mie Prefecture.

Scary Stat: Slow climb to a 306-foot drop.

It takes nerves of steel to sit
calmly through what feels like the most suspenseful 1:15 minutes of your life
as this coaster gradually climbs to the top of the first hill before dropping
306 feet. Built in 2000, the year of the dragon, the world’s longest coaster
stretches on for 8,133 feet—an endurance test of marathon-like proportions—and
you’ve got no choice but to wait it out for all four minutes.
