A new rollercoaster in Yamanash, Japan, a resort town beneath Mount Fuji, has bragging rights: Over a little less than a half mile of track, the Takabisha features a bundle of twists and turns and the steepest vertical drop of any ride on earth.

According to the Daily Mail, the Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park is set to open the ride in mid-July, shortly before a host of woozy kids start throwing up all over the Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park. The $37 million ride drops about 130 feet at 121 degrees, which is damn close to freefall.
