Crazy simulation shows what the new world's highest rollercoaster will be like when it's unveiled this year

Crazy simulation shows what the new world's highest rollercoaster will be like when it's unveiled this year

Safe to say this epic rollercoaster won't be for the faint of heart.

Thrillseekers are in for a treat, because a new epic rollercoaster is set to break a whole bunch of world records.

It's not been built yet, but it's going to make even the bravest among us feel a bit weak at the knees.

Don't believe us? Check out a simulation of it here:

Not only is it set to be the tallest rollercoaster in the world, reaching a truly dizzying height of 195 meters tall, but it's also going to be the fastest - at a wild 250km/h. That means it's going to climb more than double the height of the Statue of Liberty - which is just shy of 100m tall from the ground to the tip of the torch.

To put that into perspective, according to Guinness World Records the tallest rollercoaster made of steel is currently Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure near Jackson, New Jersey - at a mere 139m tall.

The fastest rollercoaster is currently Formula Rossa at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, taking riders up to a max speed of 240km/h.

The new ride is called Falcon's Flight, and is set to be built at Six Flags Qiddiya in Saudi Arabia.

The simulation shows the rollercoaster's cars shaped like falcon's heads, and it'll give riders a whole lot of bang for their buck.

That's because Falcon's Flight is also set to be the world's longest rollercoaster, with riders zipped along a 4,250m-long track.

That's over 4km of fun - which puts the current longest rollercoaster to shame, considering Steel Dragon 2000 in Japan is a pretty laughable 2.48km long.

Six Flags Qiddiya is calling it 'the most extreme rollercoaster in the world', and with these kinds of numbers, we're inclined to agree.


Even just watching the simulation is terrifying - the ride travels up the side of a massive cliff, before hurtling down again. It weaves around itself and builds up to the most jaw-dropping climb we've ever seen - which is presumably the eye-watering 195m ascent.

According to Qiddiya Investment Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Philippe Gas, Falcon's Flight will 'dominate the skyline' all the way round the theme park, as well as 'up and down the cliffside'.

It's being built by Intamin, who are known for some of the most blockbuster rollercoasters in the world, like Top Thrill 2 at Cedar Point.

The park is being built around 40 minutes from the capital, Riyadh, will be arranged into six different lands. Mark your diaries, because it's currently set to open in October this year.
