For the adrenaline junkies among us, Abu Dhabi is the ideal place for a fun-filled holiday where lazing about is not an option. Home to the biggest, best and fastest rides and theme parks in the world, Abu Dubai is where all thrill seekers should visit.
In the UAE, they love to create the biggest and the best of everything and Ferrari World is no exception. The largest indoor theme park boasts the world’s fastest rollercoaster, Formula Rossa, and the latest technology to simulate your very own Ferrari ride. Although there are many thrilling rides for the big kids among us, the theme park is the ideal day for the whole family. There are events and performances that are geared towards the kids as well as plenty smaller rides. Enjoy vintage car exhibitions and the world’s largest Ferrari retail space to bring back some mementos of your perfect day of family fun.

Day in the desert
A little different from the incredible theme parks of Abu Dhabi but just as exciting and an extremely unique experience is to explore the desert for the day. There are many tours that will take you on all sorts of desert experiences – from embracing the sense of space and calm provided by the vast desert to tours which make use of this space with adrenaline-filled activities. Our favourite tour for excitement is a “day desert safari” available from Arabian Nights Village. This is a day jam-packed with fun from dune bashing in 4x4s, camel riding and sand surfing, to name just a few.
