The ride features the world's steepest drop at 121°, just half a degree more than Green Lantern Coaster at Warner Bros. Movie World. In 2019, this record will be succeeded by TMNT Shellraiser, a near clone of Takabisha being constructed at Nickelodeon Universe in New Jersey, which will have a drop that is half a degree steeper than Takabisha's.
