Scheduled to be opened late next year, the star attraction of the park will be a new rollercoaster capable of accelerating to a top speed of 217km/h in just 2.5 seconds. That’s two seconds faster than a F1 car takes to reach just 200km/h, reports AutoBild. The entire length of the rollercoaster will stretch 1.2km and according to its makers the cart will be accelerated using compressed air.
In addition to the rollercoaster, organizers are planning to build a new science center and museum, a Go-Kart track and an event hall. There’ll also be a new 5000-seat grandstand, a business lounge and a 160-room four star hotel.
The Nürburgring isn’t the only track getting its own theme park. Abu Dhabi is building a new Ferrari theme park complete with an F1-spec race track and organizers have plans for even more parks in coming years.
