First Record-breaking Rollercoaster!

2013-06-08 12.59.34

The Rollercoaster is called the ‘Fomala Rossa’ and is part of Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. It’s one of their prime attractions and once you sat on it you’ll know why 🙂

It’s a world-record breaking coaster. Just have a look at these facts:

  • Max speed of 240 km/h
  • 0 to 100 km in 2 seconds
  • Winch system uses 20,800 horsepower
  • Maximum elevation 52 m
  • 1.7 Gs

As you can see it goes really fast; but more impressing than the top speed is the acceleration I think. That was for me the most mind-blowing part. Never have I accelerated so fast in my life!

Furthermore Ferrari World is a really nice place to visit, especially if you like cars 🙂 But besides the fast rollercoasters and nice Ferrari’s it isn’t that much other theme parks I thought.

Another tip: If you are going on a busy day in the weekend it might be worth taking the ‘fast-pass’. We took it and by doing so we were able to do all of the attractions and never really wait in line. Don’t regret paying the little extra.
