AMENDMENT: October 22, 2018 — This article previously stated that Crazy Rider Xpress would open to the public on November 4. This was incorrect, it will open to the public on Monday, November 5.

Got the need for speed? Well, soon you'll be able to experience a rush similar to being launched into outer space (supposedly) when the world's fastest rollercoaster zip-line opens in Sydney next month.

Latest addition to the adrenaline-packed activities at TreeTops Adventure Park, the Crazy Rider Xpress sends punters hurtling through the air, downhill, at speeds of up to 50kms per hour. Clocking in at around 2.3g-force, that's not too far from what an astronaut experiences being rocketed from earth.

Open to (brave members of) the public from Monday, November 5, the new high-thrills ride weaves half a kilometre through the trees on a rollercoaster-style zip-line track, complete with a few cheeky 360-degree loop-the-loops along the way. That makes for some pretty stellar views and a top-notch Go-Pro shoot...if, of course, your nerves aren't too frazzled to take in those surroundings.

While you're there, there are a heap of other sly-high activities you do, including wall climbs and rope courses through the trees

The aerial adventure park — which also has outposts in Pennant Hills, Coffs Harbour, Central Coast and Newcastle — already has a Crazy Rider on the Central Coast, but it's longer (one kilometre) and not quite as fast. To give you some idea of what to expect, though, the Central Coast one goes for about an hour, has four 360-degree loops and costs $79.

Crazy Rider Xpress will open on Monday, November 5, at TreeTops Adventure Park Western Sydney, 749 Elizabeth Drive, Abbotsbury.
