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.[2] It also has the fastest LSM launch in the world.[3]

Design[edit | edit source]

Elements
  • LSM launch from 0-180 km/h in 5.0 seconds
  • Outside top hat

Red Force has dark grey 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 synchronous motors with supercapacitors, being used to reduce peak power demand.[3]

Trains[edit | edit source]

3 trains with 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 pull-down lap-bar restraints, similar in style to the restraints on Taron at Phantasialand.
