Terrifying simulation shows what it's like to ride euthanasia rollercoaster

Terrifying simulation shows what it's like to ride euthanasia rollercoaster

A TikToker created a simulation of a front-row seat on the 'euthanasia coaster'

A chilling simulation of the infamous 'euthanasia rollercoaster' has been created by a TikToker, and it's safe to say we have a lot of questions.

Have a look:

The concept emerged back in 2010 when designer Julijonas Urbonas, from Lithuania, led the project of the infamous 'euthanasia rollercoaster'.

The horrifying ride is designed to 'take the life of a human being' with 'elegance and euphoria', according to Urbonas.

The idea is that the passenger will experience a series of loops, which get smaller and smaller as it progresses, which will eventually lead to death.

Up until 2021, there have only been diagrams and words to describe what would actually happen if the ride was built.

But a TikToker decided to create their own a realistic simulation of the (thankfully) fictional ride, which puts you right in the front seat.

Bodies would experience up to 10G on the euthanasia rollercoaster.

The video explains: "The train would plummet over the side of the hill, hurtling down at a speed of 360kmh, close to its terminal velocity.

"After the 500-metre initial drop, the track flattens out and begins the first of seven inversions in a row. And this is the deadly part.

"It would take 60 seconds for the train to go through all seven of these inversions, and each inversion gets a gradually smaller and smaller diameter in order to maintain 10Gs of force to all the passengers during the entire 60-second experience."

So yeah, it's pretty strong.

Describing the effects of 10Gs, the video goes on: "You would gradually begin experiencing worsening cases of cerebral hypoxia, meaning your blood would rush to the lower parts of your body, and so your brain wouldn't be getting enough oxygen to survive.

The fictional coaster is thought to induce 'unique experiences'.

"The first thing that you would notice is your vision greying out which would then gradually turn to tunnel vision."

The project, which was awarded the Public Prize of New Technological Art of Update 2013, has become a 'unique media phenomenon' since it was unveiled in 2010.

According to Urbonas' website: "Riding the coaster's track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness, and, eventually, death.

"From there, you would begin experiencing a blackout and ultimately you would eventually lose consciousness and die."
