Cape Town – Hate heights? Can’t stand the thought of speed? Well, then we think you had better steer clear of the new attraction that is set to open at Orlando’s Skyplex in 2017.

Following a very twisty track, wrapped around a 163-metre tall monolith, The Skyscraper will be the tallest rollercoaster in the world.

A computer generated animation video of the ride has been released, giving thrill seekers (or avoiders) a goosebump-inducing preview of what to expect.

Apparently it will take about 4 minutes to complete the ride and there will be no stops to break the crazy.

Kingda Ka in the US city of Jackson's Six Flags Great Adventure theme park is currently the tallest thrill ride in the world at 139-metres. 

Do you think you could handle that? We’re not too sure!
