The coaster evokes the experience of driving in a Formula 1 Grand Prix, with its four trains each featuring cars designed to resemble Ferrari's F1 vehicles. The ride's circuit reaches a peak height of 170 feet, with riders wearing protective eyewear as they traverse the 2 kilometer desert circuit.

Having lived in the states and going to Cedar Point And Kings Island as well as the other American coasters, we weren’t expecting much. This ride is better and longer than Top Thrill dragster and more fun. Best roller coaster of the pearl.
