    I was wondering last night, which ride has the fastest accelaration out of Oblivion and Rita, I know Oblivon is the faster of the two rides at 68mph, and Rita is 61mph, and Rita goes from a standing start to 61mph in 2.5 seconds, but how fast does Oblivion take to get up to speed from the holding track to the bottom of the drop, is it faster than Rita, or does Rita have the fastest accelartion on the park?

    A freefalling object would be able to accelerate to 60mph quite similarly to Rita, in about 2.5 seconds - but as Oblivion isn't freefalling as such I would say Rita is considerably faster.

    Don't they say that Rita has the fastest acceleration on the park in the 'The Rita ride team want your vote' video during the All Time Greats campaign?
