    Not only is it the fastest coaster in the world, but it also runs right alongside a real F1 track.
    I'm sure many of you have seen this on other coaster sites, but I figured I would make a post about it here. Thoughts?

    These days, very fast! In the future, I would guess even faster : P

    Looks like it's not a continuous 134, but for a few seconds and then it drops down.

    What amazed me was that this didn't utilize a large tower like Top Thrill and Kingda Ka. Going from 0-130-some mph starting off a ride of this type amazes me what they can do when it comes to coaster construction.

    That's what caught my eye - it goes through almost like a non- looping cobra roll. It's amazing what they did, like you said. It's not even in an amusement park - it's alongside a racing track. It suppose to let people feel what its like to be in an f1 racer.

    Perhaps an amusement/theme park would pick up on the concept one of these days.

    Quite possibly, but I haven't looked at any aerials to see if there is room..

    I'm not going to post an aerial image, but if you look up Nurburgring on Google Maps or Earth or whatever, you can see an aerial image. From where I think the coaster is, there is a hotel and parking lots and other structures to where an amusement park could go, and also an f1 track. But, I do see some wooded areas that aren't developed just past the hotel.
