The Great Death Coaster: Engineer Designs "Euthanasia" Thrill Ride

Many people love the thrill of riding a roller coaster and the feeling of cheating death, but one engineer has designed a ride that guarantees death for anyone wishing to take a spin!

The thrilling "Euthanasia Coaster" is a theoretical design engineered to "humanely, with elegance and euphoria, take the life of a human being". The structure is made up of a long, continuous series of high altitude loops and twists and turns, all designed to bring about a range of human emotions and feelings, with the ultimate goal of ending the rider's life. Prospective riders will experience emotions ranging from euphoria to thrill as well as tunnel vision and ultimately loss of consciousness and death. In keeping with the theme - the roller coaster carriage is a deathly shade of black. 

After traveling along the coaster at speeds of up to one hundred miles per second, passengers would eventually pass out near the end of the coaster's run and die from a lack of oxygen to the brain. The incredible structure was envisioned by Lithuanian engineer and designer Julijonas Urbonas. Julijonas has been involved in the field of amusement park development since he was a child and describes himself as an architect and engineer whose work is "artistic and philosophical".

"Thanks to the marriage of the advanced cross-disciplinary research in space medicine, mechanical engineering, material technologies and, of course, gravity, the fatal journey is made pleasing, elegant and meaningful," Julijonas told press in an official statement regarding his death-bringing thrill ride. He anticipates that the coaster could be used for people suffering from terminal illnesses who wish to experience euphoria before ultimately passing away, free of pain and suffering.
