Here's an interesting project from Design Interaction Research on a rollercoaster that will... kill you. Literally. As they explain:

"Euthanasia Coaster" is a hypothetical euthanasia machine in the form of a roller coaster engineered to humanely -- with elegance and euphoria -- take the life of a human being. Riding the coaster's track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness, and, eventually, death.

Sounds like the ride of a lifetime. Brief lifetime.
