There is now a roller coaster under development for an amusement park in the Middle East that, if it delivers on its promises, will annihilate all records for speed, track length and height.
It is called the Falcon’s Flight and will be the feature attraction for Six Flags Qiddiya which is slated to open in Saudi Arabia in 2023, just outside the capital Riyadh.
The Qiddya Investment Company—partners with the U.S. Six Flags—stated that the coaster will travel on 2.5 miles of track.
Thrill seekers will be able to experience a drop over a vertical cliff that rushes into a 525 feet deep valley. They are able to achieve this using magnetic motor acceleration. The ride will achieve speeds up to an impressive 155MPH.
The coaster boasts it will be the tallest free-standing roller coaster and will include a parabolic airtime hill in which passengers will experience weightlessness.
The coaster will have a 20 passenger limit and the ride will be about 3 minutes long. Riders will enjoy impressive views of Six Flags Qiddya as well as all the thrills.
