Now this video doesn’t really do this ride justice, but even though I haven’t been on this ride personally, my good friend, (who by the way can help you with water damage if you ever need it click here, big ups to him) he took a trip to Abu Dhabi and he can definitely vouch for this ride and how fast it really truly is. I’m guessing that it’s because of how fast the ride actually goes is the main reason why you don’t have too many turns. Those G forces would probably knock some people out.
Now for the meat and potatoes of the ride. How fast does this ride actually go? Formula Rossa wins the title of world’s fastest roller coaster with a top speed of 149 miles per hour. Not only does it go that fast, but it goes from zero to 149 miles per hour in five seconds. That’s right, five seconds. It also goes zero to 60 miles per hour in two seconds! This is why you really can’t tell how fast this ride goes in the video above but this is one of those rides that you definitely have to ride it to experience the true speed and power of the Ferrari World ride.I’m looking forward to taking a trip to Abu Dhabi soon and you can bet I’ll be strapping in and taking a ride on this coaster for sure.
The ride is located at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. It opened in November of 2010. The roller coaster track itself is 1.4 miles long. If you ever get to ride this thing, you will see what it feels like to experience 1.7 G’s of force during the initial acceleration and 4.8 G’s throughout the rest of the ride. If I were you, I’d make sure my lunch was already well past digested lol.
Please strap in and watch the video above and enjoy the ride!
If you have had the pleasure of riding the Formula Rossa already, I’d love to hear from you. You can drop me a line here.
