Have You Ridden One of the Fastest Roller Coasters in the World?
I’ve ridden only two of the roller coasters that made the list. They are Kingda Ka and Fury 325 here at my home park, Carowinds. I’d have two more (Top Thrill Dragster and Superman: Escape from Krypton) if they didn’t close just as I was about to ride them. I wonder what that says about the technology that drives them. Although, Dragster closed for rain or at least that what I assumed as I got turned away just as I was stepping into the station and the rain began.
Watch Theme Park Review take on this 149 mph monster in the video below. Notice how their cheeks are flapping in the wind and how the train sounds like a jet is flying by during the off-ride shots.
Note – This video was filmed by professionals with permission from the park. For safety reasons, please DO NOT take a camera on a roller coaster.
