The world's largest wooden roller coaster opened earlier this month at Fantawild Adventure theme park in Anhui province. Sound safe to you? 

The record breaking attraction named Jungle Trailblazer is an astonishing 1060 metres long and 32 metres high and can go as fast as 91mph. 

After the initial stomach-turning vertical descent, visitors are sent on a swirling ride of twists, turns and loops. Let's just hope this new roller coaster doesn't meet the same fate that this American version endured.

For the time being, we dare you to buckle up and enjoy the ride!
