Speed, The Roller Coaster
A state-of-the-art roller coaster launched from inside the NASCAR Cafe entertainment complex in the Sahara Hotel and Casino.
SPEED utilizes electromagnetic force to accelerate the coaster to top speeds almost instantaneously. SPEED begins inside the NASCAR Cafe, where an extraordinary force slingshots SPEED out of its launch site and over its first hill. A steep drop follows as passengers travel 25 feet below the surface through an underground tunnel before propelling them back above the ground and then through a breathtaking loop. The coaster then accelerates from 35 M.P.H. to its fastest speed of 70 M.P.H. in just 2 seconds, as it zips through the Sahara's 192-foot-tall marquee before curving around the porte-cochere and up a steep incline - - stopping 224 feet above the ground. SPEED then carries passengers through the same exhilarating path in reverse.
At the NASCAR Cafe in the Sahara Hotel and Casino, car racing fans can turn their high-speed driving dreams into reality at the Cafe's 35,000-square foot Las Vegas Cyber Speedway.
Mounted on hydraulic bases, the Cyber Speedway cars, 7/8 the actual size of authentic stock cars, are equipped to provide the most realistic simulated race car driving experience available. The stock car simulators are outfitted with 10 adjustable performance parameters that drivers can customize their own needs including tire pressure, aerodynamic wing angles, horsepower, braking response, transmission torque, and suspension.
The realistic sight, sound and motion is achieved by a 20-foot, wrap around screen which projects an authentic visual replica of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway or a road course down the Las Vegas Strip.
