As of today November 21, 2010, GMT, Formula Rossa is the fastest roller coaster in the world. Its 149 mph surpasses the 128 mph of the Kingda Ka roller coaster in New Jersey.  The Kingda Ka roller coaster has long held that distinction.

Formula Rossa roller coaster is found in Abu Dhabi at the Ferrari World theme park, an amusement park which offers various exciting rides, 3-D shows and interesting indoor activities for tourists.

According to BBC, this amusement park officially opened the Formula Rossa roller coaster ride last November 4, 2010 to thrill seeking visitors who want to experience the exhilarating but anti-g force roller coaster speed of the coaster.  The incredible speed causes abnormal body movements that would make visitors who are into extreme rides happy.

Officials of the Ferrari World however stated in an interview that the Formula Rossa roller coaster may use a slower speed in actual rides. Here is a video from YouTube.
