If you aren't afraid of heights, or going upside down, then there's a new ride for you to try out at the Fall Festival this year.

It's called "Speed."

The ride is 121 feet tall, which means it's about 30 feet taller than the giant wheel Ferris wheel.

There are two sets of two seats at each end of an arm that swing 360 degrees.

We're told this ride goes so fast it's the equivalent of three and a half G's.

Since the ride is brand new, it comes at a higher cost.

Your wristband alone won't do the job.

You'll also need two ride tickets with it to climb on board.

For a clue on what it's like, this is what someone brave enough to try it says, "Oh it's an awesome view, awesome view. It's awesome it goes way up in the air doesn't spin you too much, you don't get sick to your stomach or anything it's just a real good real good feeling."

The Fall Festival runs through Saturday.
