iSpeed – Mirabilandia – Italy

iSpeed is a steel roller coaster at Mirabilandia in Italy. It opened on May 20, 2009, and is the second blitz coaster to be made by Intamin following Maverick at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.

  • Max speed: 75 mph
  • Height: 180 ft
  • Height restriction: 4 feet 7″
  • Acceleration: 0 – 74.6 mph in 2.2 second

ISPEED!!!!!! Once you get in the seats and pull down the OTSR, you’re off. And let me tell you something. Ispeed doesn’t waste any time in being awesome. Right out of the station, it just punches you in the face with a launch. Not the best launch in the world, but still, a really fun launch that has a nice punch to it. On a really nerdy note, this is actually different from the other Rocket Coasters as this one uses LIMs instead of a Hydraulic Launch. But most of you don’t give a rats ass about it. Hell, even I don’t give a rats ass. Breathtaking Roller Coasters

Hell, even I don’t give a rats ass. Now back to how Ispeed is amazing. We then rise up into a top hat. And yeah, this Top Hat has some nice ejector air to it. You don’t get a chance to enjoy the view from the top before you twist back down and dive towards the ground. Now so far, it seems like your ordinary rocket coaster.
