Coaster Break!

Here it is, late in the week, but not yet the weekend. Maybe you’ll be taking a ten minute coffee break to help you push on through?

How about a roller coaster break instead?

First, here’s a bit of backstory. A little over a year ago I did a post about roller coasters. It included a couple of 360° videos, but they were pretty much the only watchable clips that I could find on YouTube back then.

Since then, 360° cameras have become a lot more popular. Now there are so many 360° videos of roller coaster rides, it was hard to choose what to share. Then I found a video about the scariest roller coasters out there.

After watching that, it dawned on me that there were bound to be some 360° videos of those rides, so I went fishing for them on YouTube.

Success! I found some pretty decent 360° clips for three of those rides mentioned in the video. So go ahead, hop in, and experience The Griffon, Banshee and Kingda Ka!

I hope you enjoyed the virtual rides and a little late week adrenaline rush.

If this has put you in the mood to take a real roller coaster ride this weekend, then here are a few of articles to help you find the latest and greatest rides.
