When you go to an amusement part, and you’re surrounded by thousands of sweaty strangers, what do you want? Turkey leg? Dippin’ dots? The opportunity to see those sweaty strangers half-naked and wrapped in towel.

If you answered number three. congratulations, you’ve won the opportunity to buy a ticket to Beppu City’s “Spamusement Park.”

Beppu City, Japan is home to numerous hot springs, gushing out over 130,000 tons from the ground a year. “It’s the second largest amount of water discharge in the world, and the largest in Japan,” according to Wikipedia. And now they’re looking to one up themselves.

No, not a spa for dogs, unfortunately. According to this video, Beppu City will construct an amusement park in the city, which combines the sweaty mess of the spa with the sweaty mess of the amusement park. As Beppu City Mayor Yasuhiro Nagano, if this video reaches 1 million views, they will begin the spamusment park initiative. The video now has over 2 million.

Imagine it: A roller coaster where you sit in a hot tub of water; a tea cups ride where you actually sit in a hot cup of water; a ferris wheel where you sit in a hot tub of water. Your steam dreams are about to come true.

The design for a new, 570-foot tall roller coaster called Skyscraper has been unveiled this week in Orlando, which, when complete, will be the tallest in the world.

The animated video shows the cars twisting around and making their way up a massive white tower before plummeting back down to earth at speeds up to 65mph.

And there's no "down time," says US Thrill Rides president Michael Kitchen, the company behind the project.

Construction will begin in 2015, and the ride is expected to open in 2017 as part of a new $200 million Skyplex entertainment complex.

The tallest roller coaster at present is Kingda Ka (456-feet tall) at Six Flags in New Jersey.
