The World's Fastest Roller Coaster

Formula Rossa, the new roller coaster in Abu Dhabi  travels 1.2 miles in only a minute and a half, reaching speeds of up to 150mph! But what else would you expect for a theme park called Ferrari World?
Harnessing the same technology that powers fighter planes off aircraft carriers, the rollercoaster's carriage travels the ride's 2.07 km (1.2 miles) distance in just a minute and half.

Oh, and did we mention it was built above Abu Dhabi's Formula 1 track? Well, it is. It's the star piece for the "Ferrari World" theme park that's opened just in time for the UAE's grand prix on November 12th.

I think you actually go faster before you start going up the first hill. Aren't you supposed to go the fastest coming down the first hill? (At least that is roller coaster tradition)
