World News Technology Transformed: Global Race to Innovate Fastest Roller-coaster World Wide By Emily Gafford

While technology continues to advance, theme park owners discover new ways to attract park guests. Various theme parks are in the race to create the fastest, scariest, and most thrilling ride! As engineers continue to push the limits, they have begun to ask themselves “how much can the human body withstand?” What impact will this have on what future rides will look like? John Wardley, designer of the Nemesis, Oblivion and Air rides at Alton Towers, said: "While we can withstand 6-8Gs for very short periods of time, if we experience 5G for more than five seconds, say, we're likely to black out. With today’s technology it is common for thrill seekers to experience 3G while going through tight turns.

forces a while ago, but there is no technological limit to how fast or how high roller coasters can go - it's all down to money." One well known ride, the Ferrari World’s Formula Rossa ride allows passengers to experience 4.8G’s during acceleration. The ride goes from 0-149mph in just 4.9 seconds. The feeling that passengers experience on this ride is something only fighter pilots feel. This coaster has a compressed nitrogen gas system which allows it to produce 21,000 horsepower (20X that of a formula 1 race car!). Some rollercoasters are using the same technology as the US Navy uses to propel jets from aircraft carriers. This has allowed them to catapult passengers from 0-70 in 2 seconds.
