You Don't Have to Wait in Line to Ride This Virtual Roller Coaster
Roller coasters are scary for two reasons: the stomach-lurching drops and incredibly long lines. It's really no wonder there's a phobia associated with it. Discovery recently shared a 360-degree video on YouTube taking viewers on a trip on one of Six Flags' roller coasters at Magic Mountain.
If speeding across 4,000 feet of track at speeds maxing at 60 mph doesn't sound like something you want to try in person (or maybe you want to relive previous roller coaster rides, minus the screaming), check out the video above. And don't forget to scroll left, right, up, and down for the full experience.
