The DC Rivals roller coaster is described as the highest, longest and fastest HyperCoaster in the southern hemisphere.
It has a fall of 89 degrees and reaches top speeds of 115 km / h with the option to also reverse.
The images were captured with the & # 39; fast video & # 39; function of the ride that films the whole experience from a small camera installed for each seat.
Just as the roller coaster made a sharp fall and started a steep climb, the ibis collides with a part of the young girls' seat and then in its face before it falls away
