FERRARI WORLD : Flying Aces rollercoaster test photos & video link

The countdown has begun.

Calling all rollercoaster fans and “adrenaline junkies” write down  the flowing date : 24th February 2016.

The addition of the record breaking rollercoaster ‘Flying Aces’ to Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World will start flying over the Yas Island skyline soon.

‘Flying Aces’ is supposed to have the world’s steepest starting hill incline of 51 degrees, plus  the world’s tallest loop, stretching 52 metres high.

It was built by ride manufacturer ‘Intamin’ and testing is currently in a full swing. The 4 seat / 7 row, yellow train has  a capacity of 28 people and a ride time of around 1.30 min.

The Yas Island theme park already boasts the world’s fastest roller coaster ‘Formula Rossa’, which reaches 0-240km/h in just 4.9 seconds, but in my opinion it is the only other decent attraction housed at the iconic red roofed theme park.

I cant’ wait to experience this brand new rollercoaster and share with you my first impressions and photos.

Thank you to#UAEPROJECT for kindly letting me post screenshots from the video link below, please enjoy 🙂

…ground works nearly finished at Ferrari World’s new “Flying Aces” coaster building site.

New rollercoaster also has an indoor part, which is already finished and all focus is now on finishing loading station of the coaster which appears to be outside the main “red roof” structure.

The 52m loop with inversion definitely looks impressive and it is visible from far away.

Enjoy this latest photo update from the building site. Track is looking nearly completed and the workers are mostly focusing on a ground works.

Not sure about the record breaking steepest lift hill, but the 52m loop definitely looks impressive and it will definitely become a new Yas Island’s iconic structure.

If you look closely, you can see track partially going underground which is a new interesting detail.
