Video of Ferrari's F1 drivers riding the world's fastest roller coaster
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi
just posted this obligatory (yet, quite awesome) video of Ferrari's Formula 1 drivers, Felipe Massa (on the left) and Fernando Alonso (on the right), riding the Formula Rossa
roller coaster, now the world's fastest.
I can't embed this RPOV (reverse point-of-view) video, so you'll have to follow the link:
Isn't it awesome what 149 miles per hour can do to a human face?
Their faces are priceless!!!!!! I would love to go on that ride.....just plain speed.
First and most importantly, it is great to see Massa recovered nicely from that little run in between his face and that rogue suspension bit.
We need a trip report for this park ASAP.
While the initial take off looks intense..... does it look like the ride becomes somewhat unimpressive after that?
Looks scary....I hate roller coasters, by the way
Re: The anonymous poster above. To a large extent you're right. But take a ride like El Toro or Voyage. Those rides make wonderful use of late elements and are just as intense near the finale as they are at the outset.
That guy's face on the right looks like Roger Moore's face in "Moonraker" where James Bond is strapped in a centrifuge and forced to endure deadly G-forces.
I agree it is nice to have that element of surprise in the bands setlist. I too am a big Ramones fan and got to see them live twice.... which was like being on a rollercoaster in it's own way (hold on, cause they have started and are not slowing down till it's over....lol).
