The official launch of Red Force was a milestone for the European amusement park industry, as this vertical accelerator became the tallest and fastest on the continent.
Standing at a height of 112 metres, with a total track length of 880 metres, it is capable of accelerating from 0 to 180 km/h in just five seconds, generating a sensation that has never been experienced before in Europe.
Marc Gené, Ferrari test driver, has confirmed that a ride on Red Force is the closest thing to being in a Formula 1 racing car, since its acceleration and g-force are similar to those of a single-seater.
In addition, a ride on board this attraction lasts the same as the time it takes to go around any Formula 1 circuit. Between one and two minutes pass from the moment you get on to when you arrive back and brake, including the time taken to secure the restraints and get you ready to go. This happens by pure chance, but that makes it feel even more like being in a Formula 1 car.
