THRILL seekers with a head for heights were climbing over one and other to be among the first to ride the world’s tallest roller coaster as it has been unveiled.

The latest addition to Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, Colorado is set on a base elevation of 7,000 feet, making it the highest roller coaster in the world. Named ‘Cliffhanger’, the ride is literally perched atop an Iron Mountain cliff, overlooking the city and offering glimpses of spectacular scenery. It starts with a sharp ride up and then a dramatic drop down, with twists and turns throwing evening the most seasoned rider off-balance.       –DM
