Formula Rossa, The World’s Fastest Roller Coaster

Formula Rossa is the world’s fastest roller coaster at a top speed of 240 kilometers per hour (equivalent to 150 mph), located at the brand new Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. In terms of length, the roller coaster is over 2 kilometers in length and ranks 5th in the world.

The ride accelerates to its top speed in 4.9 seconds using a hydraulic system similar to that which is used to launch planes on aircraft carriers. Due to the coaster’s high speed and high frequency of dust storms in Abu Dhabi, all riders are required to wear protective goggles.
