Ferrari builds World’s Fastest Rollercoaster

Besides making flashy cars Ferrari recently also builds rollercoasters. An Ferrari World theme park in Abu Dhabi has unveiled the world’s fastest rollercoaster, the Formula Rosso.

In the Ferrari World theme park Formula Rosso in Abu Dhabi visitors can ride the fastest roller coaster in the world — a uniquely alarming ride that throws thrill-seekers round its curves at speeds topping 150 mph.

Passengers, wearing protective goggles, are strapped into trains shaped like Formula 1 race cars, which are then catapulted from the ride’s docking bay using the same technology that launches a jet plane from an aircraft carrier.

You’ll accelerate up to 240km/h and see what 4.8 Gs really feels like. You’ll scream over the track and 52 meters into the sky before flying through the chicanes, inspired from some of the most famous race tracks in the world, and across the finish line, with an adrenaline kick worthy of the Grand Prix. Needless to say, you’ll have to wear safety goggles for the duration of the ride, just like every other racer that takes on Grand Prix speeds. It’s the world’s fastest roller coaster in all its F1™ glory.

The ride, known as Formula Rossa, is the centerpiece of Ferrari World, an indoor theme park which opened last week in the United Arab Emirates.
