Photo TR: TPR Hits Dubai


Recommended Posts

I was lucky enough to be able to join the TPR Trip whilst they were in Dubai, Due to work commitments I was only able to make 2 of the days.

Although I was not part of the official trip I just wanted to recommend the trips to everyone, they were very well organized and great fun.

 

The first day was Abu Dhabi and Ferrari World.

 

I have been to Ferrari World Many many times and the coasters of Abu Dhabi, but I still managed to get a new credit on this trip.

 

Robb had managed to get ERT on both coasters at the park.

 

For some reason I didn't take many pics at Ferrari World but take ir as red that fun was had by all and we managed to hit most of the attractions by lunchtime.

 

After a very nice lunch we moved on to the FECs in Abu Dhabi

 

Heres the link to the first video too

Cool pics, looks like a lot of fun in 2 short days. It was in March, right? What was the weather like? How does Formula Rossa's launch compare to Storm Runner's launch?

I was wondering recently if there had been a Photo TR posted yet of the Dubai trip from last year! Maybe after Robb gets back from Mexico? (Hint hint!)

here's the second day I joined the trip.

 

We had a bus ride to Al Ain, about 2 hours inland, to visit an FEC credit and Hili Fun City.

 

you may remember my original trip report http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=26681

 

Thankfully the Park has greatly improved since then.

Overall a great job has been done in cleaning the park up.

There are rumors that a new looping coaster might be arriving soon!

Can you hit the Burj Khalifa?

You can, but it's actually a rather docile and non-confrontational building; so I'd advise against it because you really wouldn't be proving anything, and it's best not to step out of line in a foreign country anyway.

 

 

Still love those Formula Rossa trains.

Had a good time at Hili Fun City. They went out of there way to show us the improvements to the park. Escorted us to just about ride and explaining what they had done and what they still had planned. Provided water because it was warm and even threw in lunch.

Looks amazing. Thanks for sharing your experience. I would love to get out to Dubai again someday, mainly to go to Abu Dabi and check out Ferrari World and the water park next door. Those small parks look decent enough for a visit from me as well, but I'm not sure I'd be able to get my party to want to visit something like that.

Great Report Dubaidave. Sadly I wasn´t able to come around in the last month and I´m not sure, whether I can make it at the end of the year. When I´m around, I won´t forget to call you.

 

Since I don´t have any other photos of Hili Fun City and didn´t shoot enough photos for a PhotoTR on the Dubai Trip - it was a really amazing Trip - I hope you allow me, to upload these Photo of the Park Map to your Photo TR.

 

Greetings,

 

Ledgy
