​Man Designed ‘Euthanasia Coaster' That You Can Only Ride One Time

A man created an unusual method of euthanasia that allows patients to have one more trip before passing away.

There is a place called a "euthanasia pod" where people can terminate their lives, but another person has taken a somewhat more bizarre method.

The method will be recognizable to everyone who has played Rollercoaster Tycoon.

This rollercoaster is so intense that no one who rides it will make it through the journey alive.

The approach taken by the design differs greatly from that of many Rollercoaster Tycoon players.

It uses a technique that could be deemed more "humane"—that is, as "humane" as a death coaster could possibly be—instead of just tossing riders off the end of the track.

Then again, what other methods could a rollercoaster employ if it wasn't dependent on propelling passengers off into space?

Fair warning, it's not a very pleasant answer.

In a post on the coaster, TikToker Luke Davidson revealed that it achieves death by applying intense G-force.

It begins with a steep drop and continues with multiple extreme loops that get smaller and smaller.

Explaining how it works, he said: "You can only ride this roller coaster once."

"Julijonas Urbonas designed this roller coaster called the Euthanasia Coaster. It's capable of holding up to 24 passengers. Once they're all on board there's a slow ascent to the top, which is 510 [metres] in the air - that's just a little bit smaller than the tallest building in America."

"Once they're at the top it gives everyone the decision to stop and go back down safely. After that, everyone has to manually press a button to start the ride."

Alright, so that's something! But what takes place after that?

Luke said: "Then it falls at a speed of 223 miles per hour, and goes through seven loops that keep getting smaller."

The journey gets more intense until the unlucky passengers succumb to the force's effects and die shortly after.

He explains: "Riding the coaster's track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness, and, eventually, death."

However, what is the real cause of the passengers' deaths?

Luke said: "It is exactly this cerebral suffocation, also known as cerebral hypoxia, that is going to kill you."

"The rest of the ride [...] proceeds with your body being numb, ensuring that the trip ends your life. You die, or, more accurately put, your brain dies of complete oxygen deprivation, a legal indicator of death in many jurisdictions."

"The biomonitoring suit double-checks if there is a need for the second round, which is extremely unlikely, as the result is guaranteed by seven-fold repetition."

That is undoubtedly one approach!
