VIDEO: No, that’s not a roller coaster! It’s a bridge in Japan!



If you’ve ever wanted to experience what it’s like to ride a roller coaster sitting in your own car, then the Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan might be your chance.

Although the bridge doesn’t have any spins or loops, it can make even the most confident drivers fearful of driving on it.


The Eshima Ohashi bridge, which connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato, is about 1.7km long and 11.3m wide.


It is the third largest rigid frame bridge in the world.


From afar, the bridge seems impossible to climb.


It seems like cars would just slip and slide right back down. The amazing height allows large ships to pass underneath.

Despite looking terrifying, the Eshima Ohashi bridge is actually quite safe. In fact, it’s all about perspective — the pictures above are quite scary, but when seen from a different angle it looks more like an ordinary bridge with a relatively steep incline. But still, would you be brave enough to drive on it?
