Abu Dhabi's Ferrari World Roller Coasters

Illustration for article titled Abu Dhabis Ferrari World Roller Coasters

This article originally placed the roller coasters in Dubai, not Abu Dhabi. Apologies for the mistake. It still looks pretty darn dangerous, though.


Okay, Dubai. Your largest building gets shut down for "electrical problems." Your two million gallon shark tank sprang a leak. So what do you do to bounce back? Build the fastest roller coaster ever. This is terrifying.


Pictured above is a Ferrari F430 replica four-seater roller coaster car. As you can see, it'll run in parallel tracks with another car, giving passengers the feeling that they're actually in a race. The Ferrari, though, is a kitten compared to the park's planned F1 coaster that's rumored to travel up to 149MPH.

It's important to remember that when these coasters derail, it'll be in the desert, so be sure to take a water bottle or two with you on your ride. Also, a helmet. Also, the understanding that Dubai is crumbling and wants to take you out with it. [Jalopnik]

Well at least they are building fun things like huge fish tanks and roller coasters instead of using all that oil money to build, say bombs, like some other country off the Persian Gulf, not going to say who, but I think you know him very well, it rhymes with He-Man.
