Some people would rather do literally anything else than go to an amusement park, preferring to plant their feet firmly on the ground. Others seek out the fastest and most fear-inducing coasters out there, traveling far and wide for a chance to catch some speed.

But no matter where you fall on the spectrum, there’s no denying that these rollercoasters are just plain terrifying. Their steep drops, winding turns, and tendency to go upside-down at a moment’s notice are all reasons to get nervous before stepping aboard. The last one on this list looks like it shouldn’t even exist in the first place.

#1. The Gravity Max at Lihpao Land Discovery World in Taiwan is terrifying just to look at: The ride goes up 114 feet before the track “break,” flipping the car down 90 degrees and dropping it 34 stories. It’s the only roller coaster of its kind in the world.
