Last Call- Roller Coaster… of Love Edition


Some people like the kind of roller coasters that have great big drops, while others like the ones with lots of fast turns and loops. For those who find no joy in either of those, Japan has the Sky Cycle, a ride located at the Washuzan Highland Amusement Park in Kurashiki, Japan. Overlooking the  islands on the Seto Inland sea, the you-set-the-pace ride may not be thrilling, but it is at least unique. You can get an idea of the experience here.

    First, be sure to get some practice runs in.

      Nice! That's the Mean Streak at Cedar Point! I can't wait to go there this summer. It's been too long.

    I felt the bottom of my chair fall out when I saw that pic. I hate heights.

    Totally OT but I respect your opinions (for the most part). My family has been debating who the funniest American is. My teenagers claim it's Jim Gaffigan, the one-trick pony who made Hot Pockets as household name. I claim it's Mel Brooks. What say you? WARNING: "Jeff Dunham" is not a legitimate answer.

      I vote for Cosby. The fact that I can listen to the same routine repeatedly and laugh every time is my supporting evidence.

      I'm not going to nominate Jim Gaffigan as the funniest American – there is some seriously stiff competition in that category – but I would not consider him a one-trick pony. Hot Pockets is certainly his most popular bit, but I've watched two of his stand-up routines and there's a lot of really funny stuff in there.

      Mel Brooks is a national treasure.
      Jeff Dunham is a national shame.

      Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding
      The fact that Bob & Ray could be so entertaining using only their voices, and that managed to keep a straight face during their routines, both still amaze me. And they stayed funny for 41 years.
      I realize that their deadpan style of humor doesn't suit everybody, but I can hardly hear their voices without giggling.

      It's very difficult for me to think of one better than Brooks, some I can think of that are still with us, they're time has mostly passed, Billy Crystal, Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Robin Williams (his stand-up back in the '80s I loved, i wonder if I still would). But Bill Murray still has it and (this is personal taste – very much so) David Letterman.

      Easy answer, but I'm thinking Louis CK.

    Wow..article derailed by a very random off-topic comment (no pun intended).
    I for one think that roller coaster looks incredible. What a great view, and leave it to the Japanese to devise such a unique way to experience it.

      That's what Last Call is for.
      And I want badly to ride that coaster.

    Never having seen an image of it while conscious I've nonetheless had nightmares involving something very similar. If not the same.
