Rollercoaster rides over top of mountain with 110ft drop in terrifying footage

Rollercoaster rides over top of mountain with 110ft drop in terrifying footage

Want to see something that'll make your stomach turn? Check out this terrifying POV video from the highest looping rollercoaster in the United States.

Loading…

Feeling a little bit weak in the knees after watching that?

What did it for you, the 110-foot free-fall drop or the loop-the-loops at over 7,000 feet above sea level?

That guy at the end who said he had 'flooded [his] basement' most certainly isn't the only one.

That's the work of Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Colorado, US and their one-of-a-kind Gerstlauer Euro-Flight rollercoaster: Defiance.

The spine-melting rollercoaster, built on top of a rocky mountain, launched in July of this year, and has had thrill-seekers travel from far and wide to have a go ever since.

Defiance gets its name from its record-breaking, gravity-defying 102.3-degree drop - the steepest in the Western US.

It also comes with a 41-foot zero gravity roll - just to make sure your head is well and truly scrambled by the time you make it to the end.

When a POV video of the coaster was shared to TikTok, people definitely had mixed feelings. While some people were suddenly planning their trips to Colorado, others warned that there wasn't enough money in the world that could get them to strap in.

"Hands immediately starting sweating…. NOPE", commented one petrified viewer.

"Why did I almost fall out of my chair trying to watch this", asked a second.

And a third joked: "Yeah u guys go ahead I'll be at the bumper cars."

"Not for any amount of money ever", wrote another, while someone else added: "Not in this lifetime."

On the other end of the spectrum, some super hardcore coaster fans let on that they weren't impressed with Defiance; mostly because it didn't last long enough.

"That was too short," complained one TikToker.

"Lasted about as long as my first time in high school" joked another.

While someone else asked: "Am I the only one dissatisfied with how short that rollercoaster ride was?"

But TikTok creator @attractionspot, who posted the video, replied that surely "being over 7000 FT above sea level makes up for the short ride!"

If you're one of the brave few who thinks they can stomach this rollercoaster, don't go booking your trip to Colorado just yet.

Be aware that a lot of the thrill rides in Glenwood Caverns are closed for the winter season.

But, hey, it's never too early to make summer plans!
