World's Scariest Roller Coaster? (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

While it's not the world's fastest or highest, this Austrian downhill coaster is nevertheless terrifying, as evidenced by this first-person video of the downhill plunge.

The single-pipe alpine coaster located in Mieders, Austria, is reachable only by taking a suspended cable car to the top of the mountain. Once at the top, riders sit on a small car equipped with a brake lever and zoom down the steep mountainside. But this brave soul decided to show us what it would be like without using the brake lever through the entire ride.

Thrill-seekers looking for an even more extreme ride can always give the world's fastest roller coaster a try, which can be found at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The Formula Rossa achieves speeds of up to 150 miles per hour by using an "aircraft carrier-like hydraulic launch system" to propel cars along the track.
