(WorldKings.org) With a height of 56.02 m, T Express is the world's tallest wooden roller coaster.

T Express is a wooden roller coaster at the Everland theme park in Yongin, South Korea. It opened on March 14, 2008 in the European Adventure section of the park, and is themed after a small town in the Alps. The coaster was constructed by Intamin, a Swiss manufacturing company, and designed by Ing.-Büro Stengel GmbH, a German roller coaster design facility.

 

Within its first six months of operation it had over a million riders. The ride holds a number of past and current records. It is South Korea's first ever wooden roller coaster and is also the longest and second fastest of any roller coaster in the country. As of 2023, it is the world's tallest wooden roller coaster, and is also the longest, tallest, fastest, and steepest wooden coaster in Asia.

 

T Express is 56.02 meters tall, and has 1,641 m of prefabricated tracks that are made of nine layers of compressed and laminated Finnish fir wood. The total materials used to create the ride include 670 tons and 45,000 blocks of wood, as well as 50,000 bolts.

It has three trains made of steel and fiberglass. Each train can seat 36, as they each have six cars that have three rows of two seats. Per hour of operation, the ride seats 1,500 people. The ride has a top speed of 103.9 km/h. In June 2022, T Express, as well as the rest of Everland, opened in the metaverse. The ride and park are based in PlayDapp Land, a Roblox-based metaverse blockchain platform.
