The Euthanasia Coaster was designed by Julijonas Urbonas. No life-sized version exists, but Urbonas did build a scale model to illustrate how the coaster would work. A 510-meter drop would take riders through a series of smaller and smaller loops, subjecting them to G-forces that would cause loss of consciousness and, ultimately, death. Urbonas describes the purpose of the coaster thusly: "[it is] engineered to humanely-with elegance and euphoria-take the life of a human being."
