“Jungle Trailblazer”, a wooden roller-coaster claimed to be the largest in eastern China, went into operation this past Wednesday at the Fantawild Adventure theme park in Anhui province. The whole roller-coaster, except for the basic components, was made of American-imported wood.

Riders are guaranteed a terrifying 1,060-meter long journey at a speed of 91 miles per hour.

“I didn’t dare to open my eyes throughout the ride,” one park-goer told reporters after disembarking the Trailblazer.
