The Ferrari Land amusement park is set to open in Spain next year, and its Vertical Accelerator roller coaster will be both the tallest and the fastest in all of Europe. The roller coaster will reach 367 feet tall in some places, and top out at 111 MPH.
Ferrari Formula One test driver Marc Gene spoke out about the speeds of the roller coaster.
“The acceleration is going to be even quicker than a Formula One car. What is going to be very impressive is the G force on the vertical accelerator. At 4.5 G it is even more than a formula one car. Attractions will allow visitors to experience firsthand some of the sensations of driving a Formula One racing car. It’s a park for all ages, where even the youngest members of the family can discover the legendary spirit of Ferrari.”
