No, That’s Not A Roller Coaster! It’s A Bridge In Japan

This may look like a crazy roller coaster, but it is in fact the Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan! The bridge, which spans a mile across Lake Nakaumi, links the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato. It is the largest rigid frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world. Amazingly, because the bridge needs to be tall enough to let boats pass beneath it, the bridge has a gradient of 6.1 per cent on one side and 5.1 per cent on the other!

The incredibly sleep slopes gives the bridge the appearance of a roller coaster. Even the most experienced of drivers will find both the climb and the descent tricky to navigate! And if you’re afraid of heights or long bridges, you may as well forget it!
