New coaster: Mile-long and 30 stories high

 

If you're one of those people who like to play with nausea, fear and high speed, you'll want to be heading to Kings Island amusement park next spring for the debut of its newest roller coaster, one of the world's seven 'giga coasters.'

That's a category for roller coasters that are over 300 feet tall—about the height of a thirty-story building. This one, called Orion, is also the longest, with over a mile of track, and the seventh-fastest, at 91 miles per hour.

The park, which is north of Cincinnati, says it expects a lot of people coming from all over the world to ride the $30 million coaster, whose ride will last less than two minutes.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations
