World’s Fastest Roller Coaster

I like when I complete a bucket list item that I didn’t even know I had! This weekend, I did just that. I traveled to Abu Dhabi to visit a friend and go to Ferrari World. Ferrari World boasts the World’s Fastest Roller Coaster. From 0 to 240km/h in 4.9 seconds!

It was a great time! The roller coaster was so fun! The first time we rode in the second car, mostly because I was a bit too scared to ride in the front (as suggested by many). The second time we waited for the front seat. It was SO much better in the front seat. It was so fast that my hair tie came out of my hair! In between riding we checked out the show room of Ferraris, and a couple other rides.




After an exciting few hours at FW, we headed back to my friend’s hotel, the Yas Viceroy, and its rooftop pool. There is a Formula 1 race track that goes around the hotel and we were able to see some test driving of the new BMW M6 and a Formula 1 car. It was a great day.

I am getting very comfortable with this relaxing by the pool thing!
