1 China's 4D roller coaster on Mon 21 May 2012, 8:19 pm

Thundering along at speeds of up to 126 kph, somersaulting through 720 degrees and plummeting almost vertically -- all in a little over two minutes -- “Dinoconda” may not be the fastest roller coaster in the world, but it’s certainly one of the scariest.

The RMB 200 million (US$31.6 million), 1,058-meter-long, 79-meter-high scream machine at China Dinosaur Land (中华恐龙园) outside Changzhou opened last April and is billed as China’s first "4D"roller coaster. The theme park is about 200 kilometers northwest of Shanghai.

Park officials say riders experience a "fourth dimension" aboard "Dinoconda" (过山龙), by being thrown upside-down in their seats which are mounted on the sides of the track and pivot independently from the track's orientation.

Cross-mountain dragon

The ride, whose Chinese name means "cross-mountain dragon," treats intrepid riders to multiple extreme drops (some are near 90 degree vertical) and rotations.

The most extreme turn comes when riders spin 720 degrees with the carriage while their seat somersaults.

And that’s not all.

Instead of hurtling forward, the two 12-seat carriages -- which are chained to each other -- speed backward through the 140-second ride with a top speed of 126 kph.http://www.cnngo.com/shanghai/life/4d-roller-coaster-china-373043
