Furius Baco is an Intamin winged launched roller coaster located at PortAventura Park in Salou, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain. The ride opened in 2007 as the fastest roller coaster in Europe. Furius Baco is the world's second fastest roller coaster with an inversion, only behind Do-Dodonpa at Fuji-Q Highland and also the only Wing Rider Coaster Intamin ever made. The ride also features a different seating arrangement to Intamin Accelerator Coasters, where the seats are attached to the side of the barrel themed trains. This gives the riders the ultimate floorless feeling, with no track beneath or above them. This arrangement has now been commonly dubbed as wing roller coaster trains.
