As soon as you think they can’t build a more intense roller coaster, someone comes along and makes one that’s crazier than anything anyone’s seen before. Today’s example: the Farenheit at Hershey Park, a coaster that drops you down a 97-degree slope. Yes, that’s beyond vertical. It hits you with 4 Gs of force, more than what NASA astronauts are subjected to. Holy crap. Hit the jump for a video of this thing in action, then feel free to falsely claim how big a man you are and how much you’d enjoy this voluntary abuse.
