Man Designed ‘Euthanasia Coaster’ To Kill You When You Ride It

A man has designed an extreme rollercoaster, known as the “Euthanasia Coaster,” intended as a means for people to undergo euthanasia. The concept, created by designer Julijonas Urbonas, allows riders to experience one final, thrilling ride that ultimately leads to their death. Unlike other more abrupt methods, the coaster uses intense G-forces to achieve a more ‘humane’ demise, as explained in a TikTok video by Luke Davidson.

The ride begins with a significant drop from a height of 510 meters, followed by seven loops that decrease in size and increase in intensity. This progression induces extreme G-forces, causing riders to experience euphoria, tunnel vision, loss of consciousness, and ultimately cerebral hypoxia – a condition where the brain is deprived of oxygen, leading to death. The coaster can hold up to 24 passengers, who must manually start the ride, ensuring their decision to proceed.

At the top of the ascent, passengers are given the option to stop and descend safely before the ride begins its deadly descent at 223 miles per hour. The combination of speed and loops ensures that riders will pass out and die from the extreme forces, with a biomonitoring suit to verify the death or, if necessary, trigger a second round, though this is deemed extremely unlikely.

This concept, while morbid, has sparked discussions about the ethics and practicality of such an invention. It raises questions about the methods and philosophies behind euthanasia and whether a designed experience like this could ever be considered an acceptable practice. While the Euthanasia Coaster remains a conceptual project, it highlights the ongoing debates surrounding euthanasia and the lengths to which some might go to create a ‘humane’ death.
