Speed The Ride at Sahara Hotel

People love Speed-The Ride because it is anything but your average rollercoaster. The average rollercoaster doesn't go this fast and it's not as exciting. For instance, Speed is made with Linear Induction Motors. This allows the ride to go from zero to seventy miles per hour in approximately four short seconds.

Using electromagnetics, Speed basically flings this amazing rollercoaster using the effect of a sling shot. Once you are shot from your starting point you will head over the first hill. At that point you'll be going a modest thirty-five miles per hour, but the speed will get much faster. From the hill you will take a curve and that will lead into a twisting corkscrew. After you hit that corkscrew be prepared because you will drop 25 feet below the ground into a misty tunnel.

    You are not allowed to film the experience and there are no video clips on the internet. You can BUY one still shot, which is just not the same. Really disappointed that you cannot see a clip of the experience in ACTION! You may be able to entice more business with a video or allowing the rider to film it. Roller Coaster parks that are proud of their extreme coaster, provide a video clip
