The roller coaster will be at Six Flags…but sadly…not in the United States.

Six Flags Qiddiya, Saudi Arabia is developing what it says will be the world’s longest, fastest and tallest roller coaster, saying “it won’t be for the fainthearted.”

According to Qiddiya Investment Company, “Falcon’s Flight” will travel across approximately 2.5 miles of track at never before seen speeds of about 155 mph.

The coaster will take riders over a vertical cliff and then dive into a 160-meter-deep valley using magnetic motor acceleration.

Here is a simulation of the ride! 

The ride will last about three minutes and host 20-riders at a time.

Coaster engineers say passengers will “experience the exhilaration of three electromagnetic propulsion launch systems” while also enjoying the “panoramic views of Six Flags Qiddiya and the Resort Core.”

Rollercoaster fans around the world have been eagerly anticipating this ride since it was announced as there is nothing quite like it anywhere else,” Phillipe Gas, Qiddiya’s Chief Executive Officer, said in a press release. “Now we are in the design stage with the experts at Intamin and the engineering team at Six Flags, the excitement is building! Falcon’s Flight will dominate the skyline at Qiddiya weave all the way around our destination, right out of the theme park, up the cliffside, and down the cliff face — the greatest drop of any ride in the world; it won’t be for the fainthearted!

Falcon’s Flight is set to open in Saudi Arabia in 2023.
