Coaster enthusiasts are always on the hunt for their next big thrill, and come 2016 they may be drawn to Orlando, Florida.

That's when the Skyplex complex is set to open, featuring the world's tallest roller coaster wrapped around its 174m tall tower.

The Polercoaster - as it will be known - is part of a larger 46,000sqm complex that will include restaurants, shopping and other attractions. But the star will certainly be the coaster, which hits a top speed of 106km/h and gives thrill-seekers a three-minute ride along its 1585m of track.

It's reminiscent of the roller coaster that used to sit atop the Stratosphere in Las Vegas. But the Polercoaster will instead climb and descend the structure, giving riders a great view of Orlando on the way up, as well as on the way down - if they can keep their eyes open.
