The Euthanasia Coaster is a concept/model designed by Julijonas Urbonas, a Ph.D. candidate at the Royal College of Art in London. It imagines an amusement park attraction made for one reason: To kill you. As sinister as that sounds Urbonas’ intention was to create a practical method of euthanasia and execution that would allow a person to die with “elegance and euphoria’. In other words: It’ll make you feel really goofy as you kick your mortal coil!
Check out the video below by YouTuber Today I Found Out: The Roller Coaster Designed to Kill People. It’ll go into more detail about Urbonas’ process and the fail-safes worked into it. After that, the truly daring can take a virtual/accelerated spin on the Euthanasia Coaster. Of course, it’ll only give you the most rudimentary idea of what riding such a coaster might actually feel like, as most of the thrill would come from anticipation of inevitable death!
