SkyCycle | The Washuzan Highland amusement park in Okayama, Japan

Then what can be so terrible and exciting here, if the road is smooth and the movement is slow, you ask !? There are several reasons for this, but first things first. The name “Heavenly bicycle” already indicates that the cabins here are set in motion not by the engine as always, but by the passengers themselves. That is, the cabins are similar to ordinary bicycles, but these bicycles do not move on roads, but ride on rails located at the height of a 4-story building. But this is conditional, since the attraction is built on a hilly area and under you there are whole failures of tens of meters.

Cabins are an open moving structure for two people, although it can be controlled by one passenger. Each passenger of such a cabin has its own pedals, steering wheel and one basket for storing things in front. And what’s most interesting, the cabins have practically no safety equipment; all that protects you is the seat belt and it is not particularly reliable.

Riding on the attraction SkyCycle need to remember that the speed depends only on yourself, and you may encounter other trucks on the road. But how scary it should be to turn around sharp corners on the track, because the height is not small and everything below is clearly visible through the frame structure of the cabins, which allows you to tickle the nerves of passengers even more.
