Roller coasters aren’t for the faint of heart. It’s a certain kind of person that wants to be strapped into a tiny box, dropped off a metal hill, and propelled across some tracks at speeds of up to 150 miles per hour. Thanks to the Internet, though, one adrenaline junkie filmed a mega-ride with six fisheye lens, warping the footage into a blood-pumping ride that transforms a rollercoaster into a panoramic little planet.
The hero of this story is photographer Ignacio Ferrando, a thrill-seeker who’s pushing the boundaries of panorama mania into the realm of rip-roaring amusement park rides. The Spanish artist captured footage from six cameras rigged throughout the car, and then stitched them together with a service called VideoStich, which also owns the YouTube channel the video was published on. Ferrando’s approach is decidedly less relaxed than the 360°, panoramic bike cruise that chilled out the digital world in April.

Love how these 360 degree cameras turn the footage into tiny planets.
