A Peek At Formula Rossa

While there are no shots of the coaster in action, here's a link to a video that shows off the Formula Rossa at Ferrari World.  When the ride opens on October 27th it will become the fastest coaster in the world at 149 miles per hour.

After the initial launch the ride looks to be a large figure-8 in layout, but the size of the ride is just enormous - the track length is 6,790 ft.  The speed will be intense enough that riders will have to wear safety goggles to protect them from dust and sand storms.
