Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, has a range of unique attractions with the most notable being the world’s first Ferrari-themed amusement park, which just got a new ride.
The Flying Aces is a roller-coaster that seeks to mimic the experience of a bi-plane, and upon launch broke three world records. The ride features more than 10 zero-gravity moments and speeds of up to 120kph.
