It Doesn’t Get Much Faster Than A Ferrari Roller Coaster (Video)
How fast is the Formula Rossa ride at Ferrari’s all-new theme park in Abu Dhabi you ask? Fast enough to force both Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa to hold on for their lives as the ride pulls and incredible 4.8 g’s off the start. According to Jalopnik, the ride uses a hydraulic launch system to accelerate the train from 0 to 150 mph in 4.9 seconds.
And if numbers, g-forces, and physics aren’t exactly your thing, just check out the face of Alonso (right) off the start. For a second there it almost seems as though he is going to lose the skin off his face.
