Here's a look at what will be the tallest roller coaster on the planet

When it debuts in 2017, Skyscraper will be the world's tallest roller coaster, featuring 4 minutes of corkscrew moves, sudden drops, loops, and inversions.

"It is an absolute cutting-edge engineering marvel that will deliver pure adrenaline unlike any roller coaster in the world today," Michael Kitchen, president of US Thrill Rides, told the Orlando Sentinel.

The roller coaster, reaching a height of more than 500 feet, will be built inside Orlando's Skyplex entertainment complex. Get a spine-tingling preview of the ride by watching the video below. --Catherine Garcia
