Takabisha (Japanese: 高飛車) is a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter roller coaster located at Fuji-Q Highland in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan. Upon opening in July 2011, the ride featured 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 was succeeded by TMNT Shellraiser, a near clone of Takabisha at Nickelodeon Universe in New Jersey, which has a drop that is half a degree steeper than Takabisha's.[2]
