Visitors will travel a distance of 4 km, featuring a vertical cliff diving into a valley as deep as 160m using the acceleration of a magnetic motor, and reaching speeds of more than 250 km / h.
The 32-hectare theme park, located outside Riyadh, will open in 2023.
Later, the tourist attractions will have six thematic areas with 28 rides and tourist attractions. Six Flags Qiddiya Chief Executive Philippe Gas said the Falcon’s Flight was not suitable for cowardly travelers.
“Falcon’s Flight will dominate the Qiddiya sky, winding around tourist attractions, straight out of tourist attractions, up cliffs, and down cliff face—the highest point of all the rides in the world,” he said, reported from kompas.com.
According to information in a press statement from the attraction, citing CNN on Friday, Falcon’s Flight will be part of the City of Thrills along with Sirocco Tower.
Sirocco Tower in the tourist attraction will be the tallest drop-tower in the world.
While falcon’s flight is still closed to the public, currently the record holder of the fastest roller coaster in the world is Formula Rossa at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Meanwhile, Kingda Ka at Six Flags Adventure in New Jersey, USA holds the record as the highest roller coaster in the world because it is 139 meters high.
