Spaceshot At Genting Highlands Theme Park

Probably the scariest ride among all the other rides in Genting Highlands outdoor theme park in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Space Shot is a rapid vertical ascent and descent amusement ride. It lifts up to 12 people into the air, providing an exciting G-force on the way up and a feeling of weightlessness on the way down (sounds exciting? think again ha ha).

Passengers are also able to take in the scenery around them on the way up, as this ride is an open-air ride but I doubt you will have time to enjoy the scenery around you when you are busy holding on to your self (and breath) when it goes down all of a sudden. Strapped onto seats, four to a side of the tower, the starting sequence cannot be initiated until all passengers are safely secured to their seats. With speeds up to 67 km/hour and raising you up to a height of 185 feet, daredevils would surely love this ride. I am scared of roller coasters and this is worse ha ha.

I took some photos of my cousins riding on it. To see more of them, you can view them [HERE].
