The Glass Tunnel going up to 19 km (11.8 miles)


The top of the coaster

The Atmosphere Coaster is the tallest roller coaster on earth with a height of 19 km (11.8 miles)! The maximum speed is 5978 km/h (3714 mph). Starting at 950 m (3117 ft), the car will go inside a glass tunnel with warm air in it. The roller coaster needs a glass tunnel because it's getting colder if you go higher and higher. The air gets also thin at that height. The car is going up the lift with 28 km/h (17 mph). It takes around 45 minutes until it reaches the top. The roller coaster reaches 5978 km/h (3714 mph) when it goes down. The glass tunnel ends again at 950 m (3117 ft). The Atmosphere Coaster has 12 loopings at the end. The length of the whole coaster is 43.2 km.
