You know how at the end of most roller coasters you feel like you wish the ride could be longer. You just had all this fun but the ride was so short. Well this next ride should help you with that. It’s the world’s longest ride: Steel Dragon 2000. This thing look like fun.
The Steel Dragon, or Suchiiru Doragon Nisen, as it’s called in Japan, opened to the public in the year 2000, the year of the Dragon, appropriately. At the time of writing this article, this ride is considered the longest ride with a track that is 8,133 feet long. The ride also happens to be Japan’s second fastest ride.
The ride itself was shut down for about 3 years from 2003 to 2006 because of an accident that occurred. One of the train wheels fell off due to a sheared axle. The wheel shot out and injured a man in the water park pool.
I’ve never been to Japan, but if ever I do go, you can bet I’ll be visiting the Nagashima Spa Land theme par in Kuwana Mie Prefecture, Japan.
Please sit back, fasten your safety belt and enjoy the world’s longest ride. Deuces.
