The Mick Doohan 'Motocoaster' to be built in Australia

Doohan almost had one of his legs chopped off after a major bike racing accident. He then went on to win five 500cc world titles. A hard man...

Based in Australia, Dreamworld already claim to have some of the most 'terrifying' roller coaster rides anywhere in the world. With names like Tower of Terror, Giant Drop and Wipeout, you can imagine what we're talking about here. But now, they're moving up a whole new level and building the Mick Doohan Motocoaster, named after the five-time 500cc motorcycle GP racing world champ.

The Motocoaster will feature full-scale replicas of Doohan's Honda NSR500 and the ride is expected to be ready by September this year. Sure, it won't be the same as riding Doohan's fire-breathing, rear wheel sliding, 180bhp NSR, but for committed adrenaline junkies, perhaps this is as close as you can get to Mick's bike.

Some more details here. And for even hotter, wilder rides, go here!!!
