This summer, we formally introduced you to what is soon to be the world's tallest roller coaster, Skyscraper. Coming to International Drive in 2016, the polercoaster sends you soaring 55 stories in the air and hangs you completely upside, with nothing but a waist restraint keeping you safe.

Sound like a good time? We think so too, which is why we were super-excited to see a POV-video of the coaster pop up on the Internet this week ... especially when we saw the epic views of Orlando that will be whizzing by. Take a virtual ride below:

We cannot wait to strap ourselves into this one and will glady battle the terrible I-Drive traffic to do so. The Skyscraper's not the only reason to visit the new Skyplex anyway. There'll be shops, restaurants and other entertainment options. And at around $20 for an all-day ride pass? Skyscraper may end up being the cheap-thrilliest ride in town.
