The 10 Scariest Roller Coasters in the World

Dodonpa

Dodonpa—Japan

Found at Fuji-Q Highland in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Dodonpa is Japan’s second entry on this list. The coaster possesses the record for fastest launch acceleration, taking riders from 0 to 107 mph in just 1.8 seconds. That time-frame and the amount of speed gained put the Rockin’ Roller Coaster at MGM to shame, and the sheer force of that initial acceleration should be enough to temper the excitement of even the most hardcore roller coaster fanatic.
