First of all for those of you who still not familiar with UAE phenomenon we have to explain it’s a little country in the Middle East which is crazy rich mainly because it’s sitting on a sea of oil.
During the last decade they’ve spent a fortune turning their country into the most amazing, most fascinating place in the world. They are also particularly fond of cars and for that reason they got themselves a formula1 circuit, and a complete Motor City which is under development.
But the thing we are most amazed by is the world’s first Ferrari Park in Yas Island Abu Dhabi. The project started in 2007 and now with most of the construction work done, the countdown has been started for its official launch this October.
Apart from restaurants, shopping centers and all the other not so interesting stuff, this park also offers a number of car-related amusement which are awesome! The coolest toy should be the Formula Rossa, world’s fastest roller coaster with top speed of 240 km/h.
