World's fastest roller coaster at Ferrari World

Excerpt from Yahoo!:

Behold the Formula Rossa roller coaster, the world's fastest coaster and the centerpiece of the brand-spankin'-new Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi.

The coaster, which opened on Nov. 4, reaches a top speed of nearly 150 mph in less than four seconds, pinning riders to the seat with 1.7 Gs.

More details: the cars get launched onto the 1.2-mile-long track with a hydraulic system similar to that which fires planes off the decks of aircraft carriers. And due to the speed and the frequent dust storms in Abu Dhabi, all riders are required to wear safety goggles.
