Record-Breaking Amusement Park Rides Around the World
A day at the amusement park once meant a family stroll down the midway to play games and win prizes, a thrilling spin on the Ferris wheel, or a dizzying one on the Tilt-a-Whirl. Fueled by popcorn and spun sugar, the day would end in sunburns and candy-colored memories. These days, the simple rides loved by our grandparents have evolved into adrenaline-charged, super-caffeinated extreme versions. Even the spark-flinging bumper car has been juiced up by a Top Gear mechanic to achieve speeds of 100 mph on its undersized wheels. If you want to get in on the fun, board one of these record-breaking amusement park attractions and get ready for the ride.
