Terrifying simulation shows what it's like to ride euthanasia rollercoaster

Terrifying simulation shows what it's like to ride euthanasia rollercoaster

This will probably be the creepiest thing you see all day.

A terrifying concept that first emerged in 2010 has resurfaced in the form of a chilling simulation that’s left people feeling, let’s say, a little uneasy.

Dubbed the 'euthanasia rollercoaster', the disturbing creation is infamous for its intention to annihilate whoever rides it.

A TikToker has now brought the harrowing concept to virtual life with a simulation. If you think you can handle it, take a look for yourself:

The rollercoaster's designer - Julijonas Urbonas, from Lithuania - perhaps describes it best, billing it as a “hypothetic death machine… engineered to humanely - with elegance and euphoria - take the life of a human being”.

Those who dared to watch the simulation on TikTok will have noticed that the deadly ride's design involves riders being slowly winched up a drop tower, before they plummet into a sequence of progressively tightening loops, which are intended to be lethal for the rider.

For years, only diagrams and descriptions gave any insight into how this grim ride would work in reality.

However, in true TikTok style, the simulation offers a disturbingly realistic simulation of this (thankfully) fictional rollercoaster, placing viewers right in the front seat.

Don't worry, because the euthanasia rollercoaster is only hypothetical.

The simulation details how riders would endure forces of up to 10G. As described in the video: "The train would plummet over the side of the hill, hurtling down at a speed of 360km per hour, close to its terminal velocity.

"After the 500-metre initial drop, the track flattens out and begins the first of seven inversions in a row. And this is the deadly part.

"It would take 60 seconds for the train to go through all seven of these inversions, and each inversion gets a gradually smaller and smaller diameter in order to maintain 10Gs of force to all the passengers during the entire 60-second experience."

So yeah, it's pretty intense.

Describing the effects of 10Gs, the video explains how riders would experience increasingly severe cerebral hypoxia, as blood rushes away from the brain to the lower parts of your body, meaning your brain wouldn't be getting enough oxygen to survive.

"The first thing that you would notice is your vision greying out which would then gradually turn to tunnel vision,” it concludes.

The project, which snagged the Public Prize of New Technological Art of Update 2013, has turned into a bizarre media sensation since its 2010 debut.

As Urbonas' website rather eloquently puts it: “Riding the coaster's track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness, and, eventually, death.

"From there, you would begin experiencing a blackout and ultimately you would eventually lose consciousness and die."

How delightful.
