World’s Fastest Roller Coaster Is Coming to Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia’s first theme park will feature several record-breaking rides, including the world’s fastest roller coaster.

Six Flags Qiddiya is being built as part of a new city outside Riyadh and is due for completion in 2023.

Qiddiya Investment Company (QIC) unveiled the park design on Monday and said many rides will “set world records.”

“The Falcon’s Flight, inspired by the kingdom’s iconic raptor, will be the longest, tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world, while the Sirocco Tower will break more records with the world’s tallest drop-tower ride,” QIC said.

Six Flags Qiddiya will cover 32 hectares and include 28 rides and attractions across six themed lands including The City of Thrills, Discovery Springs, Steam Town, Twilight Gardens, Valley of Fortune and Grand Exposition.
