Formula Rossa—United Arab Emirates
Formula Rossa was built at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, right above the Formula One racetrack and is easily the the world’s fastest coaster, as it attempts to emulate how it feels to race in an actual red Ferrari. In order to do this, Rossa utilizes a hydraulic launch system similar to the type that fighter jets off aircraft carriers also use to ensure that they can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph within the first two seconds of flying. Even though Rossa can’t maintain its 149 mph speed for much of the ride, riders in the front seat of cars are still required to wear protective glasses, the same type that are worn by skydivers.
