This Terrifyingly Steep Bridge In Japan Is Basically A Roller Coaster

If you’re looking to add some excitement to your dull commute, you can take an amusement park pit stop and ride a roller coaster on your way home.

Or you can just drive over the Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan… It’s pretty much the same thing.

Usually, bridges don’t seem too scary, but the Eshima Ohashi will take your fear of bridges to new heights. Literally.

This bridge spans across Lake Nakaumi and has an insanely steep and terrifying slope that’s tall enough to let ships pass underneath it with ease.

Aside from being the third largest bridge of its kind, this thing is pretty much the bridge from hell that will forever haunt your dreams.

Seriously, you better make sure you throw a few barf bags in your glove compartment before you embark across this bad boy.

Behold, the Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan.


This terrifying bridge looks like an insane roller coaster.


This mile-long bridge connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato.


The gradient of its slope is over 5 percent on each side, making driving over this thing one seriously thrilling car ride.
