Euthanasia Coaster
Euthanasia: From Greek, meaning “good death”.
“Euthanasia Coaster” is a hypothetical euthanasia machine designed and constructed into a scale model by PhD candidate Julijonas Urbonas. It is engineered in the form of a roller coaster to take the life of a human being with elegance and euphoria.
The coaster’s design begins with a steep-angled lift, taking two minutes to finally reach the 1,670-ft summit. A subsequent 1,600-ft drop would bring the train to 220 mph, close to its terminal velocity.
Passengers aboard the Euthanasia Coaster would travel through seven narrowing inversions, maintaining a lethal force of 10 g for 60 seconds. Final sensations would include “gray-out”, tunnel vision, and blackout, until eventually reaching G-LOC (g-force induced loss of consciousness). Death would soon occur as a result of prolonged cerebral hypoxia (insufficient supply of oxygen to the brain).

Seated, harnessed with a health monitoring system, and strapped to the seat of a single-seat coaster vehicle, you are slowly towed to the top of the drop-tower. It takes a while… hence, you have a few minutes to contemplate your decision and your life in retrospect… If this test has not changed your mind yet, then at this point you have no choice but to submit yourself to the very last fall. Yet you still have a few minutes for the last words and goodbyes, or just enjoying the exhilarating bird’s-eye view of the surroundings. You relax and press the FALL button… the ultimate surrender to gravity! … The scooting gust of wind, goose bumps, suspension of breath, and vertigo — a set of experiences comprising a sort of fairground anaesthesia — prepare you for the fatal part of the ride.
Now you are already falling at a speed close to the terminal velocity, when the force of air drag becomes equal to the force of gravity, thus cancelling the acceleration… Just after this point, the track smoothly straightens forward, entering the first loop of the coaster, a continuously upward-sloping section of the track that eventually results in a complete 360-degree circle, completely inverting the riders at the topmost part. The centrifugal force drives the car upward, and you are literally pinned to the seat, your buttocks’ flesh is pressed against the ergonomic planes of the seat so hard that your whole body is almost immobilised… But most probably you are already unconscious, as this force rushes the blood to the lower extremities of the body, thereby causing oxygen deficiency in the brain… your vision may blur, lose colour (greyout) and peripheral sight (tunnel vision), or even disappear completely (blackout), together with hearing. Eventually, this experience — accompanied with disorientation, anxiety, confusion, and, most importantly, euphoria — is crowned with G-LOC (g-force induced loss of consciousness), during which the body is completely limp, and vivid bizarre dreams occur, such as being in a maze and unable to get out, or floating in a white space, not knowing who you are, why you are here, etc…

Upon being questioned regarding the “humanity” of the concept, Urbonas replied, “[Dignity, compassion, benevolence and meaningfulness] is exactly what a lethal injection lacks. It is highly hospitalised and not much different from a mundane injection of medicine… It is like death is divorced from our cultural life as much as the death rituals in our secular and postmodern Western society… It has been observed that the jumpers, people who commit suicide by falling to the ground, often demonstrate some sort of aesthetic preference for a nice place or structure to kill themselves, for example, by traveling long distances for that, but also performing some forms of rituals such as folding their clothes neatly before the jump or holding a hat on the head with both hands all the way down… All this testifies that self-murderers are not apathetic in relation to the ritual of killing themselves, and seek some sort of aesthetic meaning in it… the coaster incorporates the private and public aesthetics of a humane and meaningful death: for the faller, it is a painless, whole-body engaging and ritualised death machine; for the observers — a monumental mourning machine.”
