Very snazzy. It looks like the ride is packed with lots of air-time, one day I hope to ride this. Also, theres a good chance the goggles thing is true, you're going that fast the sand would pick up from the floor and go into you're eyes.

Please excuse me while I scrape my jaw off the floor.

Seriously, though, that's just AMAZING! I really want to go on it, but I can't afford to run a car, let alone plane tickets to Abu Dhabi!

Oh Jammy, you sexy beast!

This looks awesome, I think this will be "intense" in a totally different way! By that, I mean there looks to be sustained, lower G-forces as opposed to short-lived, higher G-forces..

...a bit dull once you've got past the acceleration?

Just watched the mounted POV of it, it looks well... Slow. Nice ride, innovating and a record breaker, but nah.

pretty much. fast launch into a bit of an undulating and very uninspired figure of 8 layout. How do intamin get way with peddling such mundane layouts?

Indeed, a proper Launch coaster should use the Launch as a means to jump straight into the action. The only reason they keep getting away with mediocre layouts is because the general public are captivated by the launch. The voice over said the layout is inspired by many great racecourses but in truth it's just Rita.2

Well that looks poor. Never thought I'd say this about something as fast as that, but it looks too slow and drawn out. The layout isn't too bad, but needs to be tighter. Looks airtimeless and weak. Trims on the first hill look deadlier than Thirteens.

This video gives a nice look at the trains. And look out for the massive FAIL at the end :D
Are you INTIMIDATED by the new 500ft tall launched Pinfari log flume with 3 side-by-side circular loops and splashdown on fire?

Whilst it looks slow on a POV, don't forget there are many rides in which a POV video of the ride does it no justice at all. I reckon this is really a ride you NEED to ride before you make any judgements on it. Another thing about the POV is that it's fixed and looks smooth which makes it look slower than a juddery camera. Don't forget you're still going a good 80mph round the course, that's not exactly slow. :wink:

Even if I was to ride it, I think the 150 odd mph launch would still have my heart pounding for days afterwards.

Can anyone tell me what the thing is at the end of the transfer track in the first picture?

:)
If you go down to the Towers today, you\'d better ride Th13teen. :P

Nice, but you missed the fact it is shockingly, disgustingly, humiliatingly tacky and damaging to Ferrari's name, which has been eroded even more in the goal to flood the world with branded just-about-anything. Eww.

And well done Ferrari, making the trains look like a model you don't make anymore, well done #-o
