Wordless Wednesday – What The EF…Are You Brave Enough?

Heard about this today. It’s the worlds fastest roller coaster at the new Abu Dhabi theme park. It looks like a Ferrari F1 car and pulls 4.8g’s when it launches.

The ride is called Formula Rossa and it uses a hydraulic launch system—the same technology used to get fighter jets off the deck of aircraft carriers—to accelerate the train to 150 mph in 4.9 seconds. That’s four times the g’s produced by a Bugatti Veyron under full acceleration and is enough to give even seasoned Formula One drivers face warps.

Would you be brave enough to ride it?
