Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi is already home to the fastest roller coaster in the world, Formula Rossa which reaches a top speed of 149 miles per hour.  The park has now announced plans to build a coaster with the world’s steepest drop and a 51 degree lift hill, and will feature the tallest loop in the world at 170 feet tall.

The coaster  will reportedly be called Flying Aces, inspired by Italy’s “ace of aces” Count Francesco Baracca, who was dubbed as Italy’s top fighter ace of World War I.

“We are proud of what Ferrari World Abu Dhabi has achieved over the past five years, and thrilled with the great feedback we’ve been receiving from our guests on all the new experiences introduced at the Park in the past few months,” said Jesse Vargas, Ferrari World general manager.

Other additions to the area include a climbing and free fall jumping at the Junior Training Camp.
