'Fastest' rollercoaster opens in Los Angeles

A new rollercoaster which claims to be the fastest and tallest looping ride in the world has opened at a theme park in Los Angeles.

The Full Throttle ride in California has a 160 foot loop that takes riders upside down twice and a section that takes thrill-seekers backwards.

The attraction, which opened on Saturday, has a top speed going into the loops of 70 miles per hour.

The theme park now has whopping 18 rollercoasters.
