Soaring to New Heights: The World's Tallest, Fastest Roller Coaster

Six Flags is building the world's tallest, longest, and fastest roller coaster at its theme park in Saudi Arabia.

The coaster, called Falcon's Flight, will reach a height of 640 feet and top speeds of 156 miles per hour.

Falcon's Flight is an Exa Coaster, a classification given to roller coasters over 600 feet.

The coaster will have a 640-foot difference between its highest and lowest points.

The ride will also be over 13,000 feet long, which is nearly a mile longer than the current longest coaster in the world.

Riders will not need to wear protective eye-wear, as each row of the 14-passenger train will have its own windshield.

The ride will be propelled by Linear Synchronous Motors, magnets that allow the trains to move at high speeds.

The trains of the coaster feature extra-large running wheels and custom-designed rims to prevent overheating.
