EVER VISITED A THEME PARK LIKE THIS ONE?

Ferrari World Theme Park, Abu Dhabi, which recently opened, has according to Ferrari the world's fastest roller coaster and a 20-storey tower ride that duplicates the G-forces felt by race car drivers. Ferrari is the first sports car manufacturer to venture into theme parks, calling it the world's largest indoor park and the first in the Middle East.

DO YOU LIKE THEME PARKS? WHAT’S YOUR TAKE ON THIS ONE - IS IT WORTH THE (LONGISH) JOURNEY?!

Happy Ruby Tuesday and Rednesday!
And do visit other Ruby Tuesday & Rednesday posts! (Links at Work of the Poet & Sue loves Cherries.)
Enjoy!
XOXO LOLA:)
PS Have a good week and see you again for Alphabe-Thursday!

I have visited very few theme parks but always had some fun.

Michelle said...

Looks quite inviting but the distance is a huge disadvantage!:D

Holly said...

Get the impression those Middle Eastern states are all trying to outdo each other! 8-D

Wow! I would like to visit the place someday! Happy Tuesday!

Jan said...

Amazing theme park-unique! :-)

I enjoyed Disneyland theme park more than once! I haven't been to many others, and wouldn't travel so far to visit this one, though!

Disneyland's far enough for me!:)

Whatever next?!

I'm more of a "National Park" than a "Theme Park" kind of person. LOL (I'm not fond of crowds.)

That's very neat!


Ruby at Nostalgic Marveling, have a nice Monday!

I actually live only about a 20 minutes drive from a very big theme park, but have never gone. I'm just not into it.
*kisses* HH

I don't like rollercoasters or stomach flips so I think I'll give this one a pass. Cool idea though.

Very strange picture made all the stranger by the unrecognizable red at its center. Even your explanation does not really put it together for me. The words aren't lacking though; just my sense of vision I guess.

Happy Ruby Tuesday, Nora and Lola.

I used to love theme parks and going on the roller coasters.
When we were in Surfers Paradise where there are a lot of theme parks I persuaded my husband to go on one.
He hurt his back so never again, will have to go with our kids, they love them too.

Happy week
Hugs
Carolyn

Wow looks dangerous. Have a nice week.

Oh yes.....I'd love to have a car like this. Why? I don't know 'cause you really can't drive it in the city like it was intended to be driven. Fantastic theme park.

Mel Cole said...

It's amazing! I would love to see a real ferrari someday. :)

That would be just the place for The Great Dane!

Ann said...

I saw you with your camera and I waved at you. As a result, I came second and lost my champoinship. LOL

Haute World said...

I don't think I'd visit Abu Dhabi specifically for this, but if I happened to be there, I'd probably go. I'm guessing this is a theme park for the bored ultra-rich locals that reside there (many of them probably own several Ferraris anyway).

LV said...

I do not do theme parks anymore. I used to enjoy them when younger. This one looks like it would be fun tho.

SueLovesCherries said...

I saw this theme park featured on a Top Gear episode - it looks so cool!

No theme parks anymore since my daughter is now grown up. But she would've loved this one-she's quite the daredevil
