The best thing about my Dubai trip were the roller coaster rides. When we decided to go to the Ferrari World (@ferrariworldabudhabi), I immediately knew I wanted to try the rollercoasters. It was my first time even trying a rollercoaster ride – so it’s funny that I headed straight to the Formula Rossa– the world’s fastest rollercoaster. 240km/h in 4.9 seconds!! This picture was taken by my friend, Nandini from the observation area – she is scared of these rides – I wished she would’ve tried it cause it was amazing!!Next I headed to ‘Flying Aces’ – another roller coaster ride – now that I had done the world’s fastest, there was no stoppingI was stuck in a really long queue and my turn would’ve taken ages – I had second thoughts of turning back and passing on this one but then this German man in the queue told me that he had tried the ride before and it is better than Formula Rossa – now I had to do something! I cut the line, spotted a family right in front of the queue and asked if I could go and they happily allowed (perks of smiling when making a request)I sat right in front for both the rides and it was the best thing in the world!Flying aces was surely better than the Rossa and I wished I had my video of the ride but here’s the link to the YouTube video of the Rossa – all of you should try this once in your life…!There are many other rides that you can try here and if rides is not your thing then you can learn the history of Ferrari, try go karting or 4D adventures or visit the interactive exhibition of cars from 1947 to the present day.After an eventful day we were all set to explore the nightlife of Dubai. We headed to The Backyard by Swim & Tonic for drinks – a garden style pub with picnic tables and reclining sofas that look out over to the Dubai Canal.

The Formula Rossa is one of the fastest roller coasters in the world. With speeds upto 240 km/h, this is sure to induce fear in the bravest of hearts. Those who are courageous enough to bear these heart stopping speeds and ride the roller coaster are required to wear glasses for the fear of air bourne particles or insects getting into the eyes. Though situated in Abu Dhabi, The Formula Rossa is not an extremely far drive from Dubai. The entire ride on the roller coaster lasts a total of 1 and half minute. You know where to head to get that adrenaline pumping.
