North America hosts the tallest roller coasters in the world: with up to 139 metres the steel tracks wind their way up into the sky.

“The end is only the beginning” – this is the slogan, SixFlags America is advertising for its new attraction in 2012, a stand-up roller coaster manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, which is named properly: “Apocalypse – The Last Standing”. Revamped and set into a doomsday scenario the park’s eighth roller coaster is now taking its turns over an area full of destruction and damage.
