10 Most Insane Amusement Rides Around The World

You know what I find interesting about theme parks? It’s the fact that we go there to have some of the most thrilling and scary experiences in life, and sometimes, we even repeat, as if we can’t get enough of that. Isn’t that a bit crazy? Shouldn’t we be looking for more relaxing and slow experiences to escape the routine and stress of everyday life? Nah, I don’t think so! Amusement parks can be extreme, but they surely put a smile on our faces. And the more thrilling a ride becomes, the more we’ll enjoy it. Today we’ll be looking at the “10 most insane amusement rides around the World.” We’ll be looking at roller coasters and water park rides that have given us some of the most exciting and at times...life changing rides ever. Watch out, because some of them pushed some boundaries, to the point that some of them had to close down for good. Can you imagine the reason? You’re about to find out...

The Skyscreamer

The name of this ride speaks for itself. The skyscreamer is technically that...a ride that will take you up to the SKY and make you SCREAM at the top of your lungs. If you want to challenge your fear of heights, then this is a ride for you. But if being at 400 feet above the ground makes you anxious, then you’ll want to stay away from this! You can find this ride in two famous parks in the States. There’s the Texas Skyscreamer at Six Flags over Texas and there’s the New England Skyscreamer at the Six Flags park in Massachusetts. Both are tall, and they both hold the Guiness World Record as the tallest swing carousel rides in the world. Now, I know what you’re thinking - carousel swing rides are not really thrilling. But that’s only if you stay close to the ground. Trust me, when you’re 400 meters high spinning at 35 miles per hour on a skimpy chair, you will know that this ride is not for the faint of heart.

Giant Canyon Swing

Speaking of swings... there’s a more extreme ride and you can find it at the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. This is a pendulum ride and it can move up to four passengers back and forth, in what seems to be the longest and most intense swing ride ever. If you were one of those kids who loved going on swings, hoping to one day lift yourself high above the ground, then this ride is for you. At some point, you could be swinging at a speed of 50 miles per hour while challenging the laws of physics as your ride sets itself into an almost vertical position. And I know you’ve probably seen rides like this one, but I doubt any of them is in a place like Colorado. This Canyon Swing is right at the edge of a cliff, and it swings out 1,300 above the famous Colorado River into a canyon, which honestly, only adds to the thrill of it.




Insanity

Insanity is described as a mind-bending experience. And why is that? Well, just look at it - it makes its passengers spin while being in their vehicles at the tip of this ride that looks like a claw. And, to make things more interesting..and thrilling, this ride is not necessarily in an amusement park. Instead, it’s at the top of one of the craziest high buildings in Las Vegas: the stratosphere tower, which is almost 900 feet tall, which is roughly the size of a 60 story building. But as the ride swings away from the tower, the riders can experience views from a 90 story building perspective. So, if you want to have an experience in Las Vegas that’s different to the casinos, this might be a good choice. Just keep in mind that you will be stepping into one of the tallest rides in the world. So make sure you can handle that.

Drop of Doom

Oh man, who would want to step into something that’s called the “Drop of Doom”? Well, actually...I can imagine that a lot of us would like to give it a try, even if it implies that we will literally be dropped into one of the scariest moments of our lives. The Drop of Doom is a ride that you can find in two different parks in the States. There’s one at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey, and there’s one at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California. By the way, the one in California is called “Lex Luthor: Drop of Doom.” And I can totally see how adding the name of a famous villain reinforces the idea that things in this ride can be unpredictable and even risky. These rides are attached to other rides that are tall

The whole water loop had an issue where some weren't making it all the way around the loop and dropping onto the upper part of the loop. They installed padding but then people were coming out with strange cuts, and here people's broken teeth were getting caught in the padding and cutting people.

I have vertigo and going on any rides like this is not a good idea especially if you have a weak stomach 😂
I went on a mini one to see what it was like and couldn’t walk cause I was so dizzy after it. Luckily I have a strong stomach otherwise that would have been gross lol

The fact that people swing their feet on the way up to the drop of doom is the most relatable thing ever. 😁

Well I went on the Texas Giant which has a 90 degree drop back in 2014. It was scary and it was frightening. That also meant that I never returned to Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington again. But I still remember the good time I had because I got the key chain which is my house key that I still have to this day. So it was 6 years ago. Yes I know but it was still a memory to remember. Trust me. It’s insane.
