Plans are underway to build the world's tallest -- and quite possibly most terrifying -- roller coaster at an Orlando, Florida, theme park due to open in 2017. Suitably called "The Skyscraper," the coaster track spirals up and down the side of a 535-foot-tall observation tower.

Roller coaster lovers everywhere are rejoicing from the news of a new kind of roller coaster gracing Orlando Florida, that happens to also be the tallest coaster in the world! The 'Skyscraper' is the worlds first polarcoaster, which means it is a large tower structure filled with shops, elevators, and other entertainment, all while the roller coaster wraps around the structure. According to the designers, "the unique design of the coaster means more incredible, heart-pounding inside and outside loops, dives, spirals, and inversions in a vertical area than riders have ever before experienced."
