World’s Tallest Roller Coaster, ‘Skyscraper’, Twists, Dives, & Tumbles 500 Feet Above Orlando, FL

By: | December 3rd, 2014


“Skyscraper” is the name of the new world’s tallest roller coaster set to open at Orlando, Florida’s International Drive resort in 2017.

The coaster will be roughly 570 feet tall and twist, dive, and tumble all over the place after launching riders from the base of the city’s Skyplex entertainment complex.

If you are not interested in riding Skyscraper, the company behind the roller coaster, US Thrill Rides, says there will be a 534 foot-high observation deck solely for watching.

If you are also scared of heights, you might be out of luck and have to watch people hysterically scream from the ground.
