Artist Creates Scale Model of Death Coaster

Julijonas Urbonas is a Lithuanian Ph.D. candidate at the Royal College of Art. He recently designed a "Euthanasia Coaster" the he says was designed to kill, while giving the rider a feeling of euphoria.

A top US neurosurgeon disagrees saying the coaster will let its riders die nauseous. Urbonas designed the rollercoaster to use "extreme g-force" that essentially suffocates the riders' brains.

He said "Your blood is rushed to your lower extremities so there is a lack of blood in your brain, so your brain starts to suffocate. When your brain starts to suffocate, people become euphoric."

The coaster hurtles down 500 meters, then proceeds to seven loop-de-loops. Urbonas presented his design by saying "Usually pilots experience such extreme forces for just a few seconds, but riders in the rollercoaster experience it for one minute and nobody has experienced this for such a long time."

Urbonas said he is not advocating for assisted suicide but shares "If [euthanasia] is executed in an extremely boring fashion, proposing 'humane' voluntary death could be more meaningful, personal, ritualistic."

There isn't any uproar because an actual euthanasia rollercoaster has not been built.
