My love for roller coasters

Just close your eyes and hope you stay alive

Hola gals, I thought I would do a post on my interest in roller coasters.

 SHEIKRA

One of my favorite coasters is the sheikra in bush gardens Tampa bay Florida. This beast is a floorless coaster and it’s 200 feet high and max speed is 70 mph. It is like the oblivion in Alton towers but with more added after the drop. This also has a splashdown where the coaster hits water and an Immelmann loop.

 THE INCREDIBLE HULK COASTER

Another coaster I love is the Incredible Hulk in islands of adventure Orlando Florida. This is a steel launched sitting coaster and has 7 inversions. The train accelerates to 40 mph in approximately two seconds before speeding through the inversions. The 3,700-foot-long  ride features a top speed of 67 miles per hour.

 KINGDA KA

The last coaster I’m looking at is one I have not yet conquered. It is the tallest and used to be the fastest coaster in the world until formula Rossa blew it away. It’s called Kingda Ka and is located in six flags great adventure New Jersey US. The train is launched by a hydraulic launch mechanism to 128 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds. At the end of the launch track, the train climbs the main top hat tower, reaching a height of 456 feet…. WOW, and spanning over a 3,118-foot-long track by the end of the ride.
