World's Tallest Roller Coaster Coming In 2017

The world's tallest roller coaster is coming as part of a project to build Skyplex, in Orlando, Florida. Planned for 2017, The Skyscraper will be a 570-foot-tall roller coaster built around the tower and will travel at speeds up to 65 mph.

The $250 million indoor arcade and theme park will also feature restaurants, nightclubs and an observation deck where visitors can look out and watch fireworks every night. Construction is expected to take two years.

A video simulation shows that riders can expect multiple twists and turns around the observation deck and lot of plunges down steep slopes located all over the site.
