Specific Type: Suspended Looping Coaster
Imagine yourself at the local rodeo enjoying some horseback riding, barrel racing, and bull riding. Now add a coaster track to that idea and you have the recipe for an exciting adventure. This is exactly how you can feel if you visit Beto Carrero World in the South American country of Brazil. Inside of the largest multi-park facility in the southern hemisphere likes a ride that will have you yearning for water and that is Firewhip. This suspended looping coaster (SLC) is your standard model but packs a punch in the heat of Brazil. The coaster is a transplant from Suzuka Circuit in the country of Japan and was formerly known as Blackout.
Firewhip is your standard SLC with a track length of about 689 meters. The red and yellow painted coaster reaches a height of 41 meters and speeds of up to 80km/h. The coaster features five inversions that include a signature in-line double twist. The coaster is equipped with two trains with 10 cars each. The cars seat two people across for a total of 4 per car. This coaster became the first inverted coaster in the country of Brazil. Come along with us now as we take a virtual journey on Firewhip.
As guests enter the station platform, you take the next open seat, pull the OTSR over your head and strap in for an exciting ride. The coaster leaves the platform and catches the chain that lifts them to the top of the hill. At the crest, the coaster veers to the right as it drops towards the river. The coaster flips through a barrel roll and into a basic loop. The coaster makes a turn back toward the station and suddenly drops towards the water. The coaster then heads into a double inline twist as you shake rattle and roll all the way through the course. The coaster juts to the right sharply and heads for the final brake run ending your wild ride.
The next time you are in the South American continent, play some futbol and take a trip to Beto Carrero World to ride Firewhip.
