Speed - The Ride is a Premier Rides launched shuttle roller coaster which originally operated at the Sahara Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is currently in storage (having closed because the hotel closed) and will be located at the Akita Plaza in Las Vegas, Nevada. A portion of the ride ran through the interior of the casino building including the loading area. It was the first Premier launched coaster to feature a vertical loop. It is similar to Full Throttle, Batman & Robin & Mr. Freeze.
