Tempesto, the newest roller coaster at Busch Gardens, is now open for thrill seekers to enjoy.

For those who want to see what they are getting into before they decide to ride, the park has released a video filmed by a GoPro camera located in the front row of the coaster during its 55-second ride. Tempesto is located in the Festa Italia section of the park near Apollo’s Chariot.

The coaster, which opened Saturday, is supposed to simulate the experiences of an Italian motorcycle daredevil, hitting speeds in excess of 60 mph during the course of the 883-foot ride.
