Red Force is a steel launched roller coaster located at the resort PortAventura World in Salou, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain. It opened as part of a new development called Ferrari Land on April 7, 2017.[1]

It is the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Europe, as well as the tallest giga coaster. It also has the fastest LSM launch in the world.[2]

Design[edit | edit source]


Red Force has black track with red supports. It uses the new style of Intamin track. There are three large Ferrari logos, one on each side of the tower. There is also a seating area adjacent to the launch track.

Riders are accelerated to 180 km/h in around 5 seconds. The launch is powered by linear sychronous motors with supercapacitors being used to reduce peak power demand.[2]

Trains[edit | edit source]

3 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 12 riders per train. Riders are held in by overhead lap-bar restraints, similar in style to the restraints on Taron at Phantasialand.
