found some (dark) footage online of Scarecrow running.

looks like it doesn't do complete 360s (or maybe just those riding didn't want to go upside-down?). . but it does look like it gets a complete 90 swing out while the ride operates:




here's better footage from Voice of Dubai channel at the park's grand opening, and yeah, it does show it acting like Air Race, with some cars rotating :

Yes, it's nice to remember your personal impressions and even look at such a super report! Good flight and let the number of takeoffs will always be equal to the number of landings. :Pr

I wouldn't be shocked if they had a Flintstones vest, but I wasn't explicitly looking for one. Their Flintstones gift shop was huge.

Yeah it was a really ingenious way to bring such an iconic scene from the cartoon to life.

Thanks! The music in that second video was brutal, but it almost looks like some form of the Gerstlauer Sky Roller with those side fins.

Yas Waterworld

Without a doubt, I’m more of a theme park person than a water park person. Even if it’s attached to a theme park, I rarely want to deal with the hassle of changing into a bathing suit. I do make an exception if the park has a water coaster.

Yas Waterworld had my water coaster. They also had a regular roller coaster. And the park was beautifully themed. If there were more water parks like this in the US, maybe I’d be more of a water park guy.

Entrance.jpg
The UAE is known for gas, skyscrapers, and awesome water parks.


I wasn’t sure what the protocol would be visiting a water park with the UAE’s conservative dress code. I went with a water shirt to be safe, but plenty of guys were bare-chested. I also saw others clad in bikinis and speedos, so it seems like you’re free to wear normal swimwear once you pass through the gate.

The fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo system was quick and painless. It wasn’t cheap to rent a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo ($25-30), but I did get a really nice souvenir beach towel so I thought it was well worth it. The fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo were controlled by a RFID wristband, which could also store cash if you so pleased.

All three of the water parks I visited in the UAE were beautiful. The other two relied on lush landscaping while Yas Waterworld relied on a manmade mountain adorned with a giant pearl. It’s definitely a striking icon for the park and it can be seen from everywhere in the park.

Theming.jpg
And there's even some pirate theming too.


My first stop was undoubtedly Bandit Bomber, the Vekoma “water” coaster. I hesitate to call it a water coaster since the water features were disabled. I’m guessing it was because the temperature was in the 70s, but it was a bummer not being able to launch water bombs at unsuspecting guests.

The coaster itself was still very enjoyable without the water features. It was longer than expected (2 lifts), included 2-3 abrupt dips, and wove around and through the mountain. It did have a bit of a rattle to it, but this wasn’t an issue with the minimalistic restraints. 7 out of 10

Bandit Bomber.jpg
Bandit Bomber is the best way to see the park if you ask me.


I was hoping to ride their water coaster, Falcon’s Falaj, several times. This is a jumbo cloverleaf water coaster in the mold of Splashin’ Safari’s Mammoth. However, I almost didn’t even get to ride it. The culprit? The weight requirement.

The website lists the weight requirement as 160-450 kg (350-992 lbs). There weren’t many people in the park, but I eventually found a group of two to tag along with. We came in at 240 kg, but we were told the weight requirement was 250 kg.

I returned later with a group of five. We came in at 420 kg, but we were told we were too heavy. At this point, I was skeptical they even wanted to operate the slide. I gave it one last attempt with a group of three and we were greenlit at 330 kg. I have no clue what the weight requirement actually is, but be prepared to rip your hair out.

It’s worth the frustration though since this is one of the best water coasters I’ve ridden. It’s short, but there are three steep drops with sustained airtime, a frightening prospect on a water slide. Then there were 2-3 uphill bits with smaller pops of air. It’s a shame I couldn’t have ridden it more. 9.5 out of 10

Mountain.jpg
The mountain is a beautiful mess of water slides.


The rest of the park’s offerings were very good, albeit none were real standouts. Below is a quick recap:

Liwa Loop- This was a smooth aqualoop. The initial plunge wasn’t as steep as some, but these drop pod slides are always thrilling. 8 out of 10

Jebel Drop- This was a freefall slide and a darn good one too. I came off the slide at the start and it was remarkably smooth for a slide of this type. 8 out of 10

Hamlools Humps- I prefer the slides that go straight down in one fell swoop. The first two dips didn’t do much, but I did come off the slide a bit on the last drop. 7 out of 10

Sebeg- I felt lonely getting a solo ride on this mat racer, but it was one of the better ones I’ve ridden. The final plunge was gigantic for this genre. 8 out of 10

Slithers Slides- This complex had your standard tube slides plus a funnel and bowl slide. The most notable thing was the awesome lighting package on the way down. It was particularly effective in the funnel, which became very disorienting. 8 out of 10

One of the most annoying things about water parks is walking on hot pavement. Yas Waterworld has a solution for this, but it comes at a price. The walkways were cool as ice, but they were just as slick too. I often had to hold onto railings to avoid wiping out going from slide to slide.

Yas Waterworld is undoubtedly one of the best water parks I’ve visited. It’s crazy to think there’s a better water park just a half hour away, but I’ll get to that one in a latter report. I can see some enthusiasts popping in solely for the coaster, but this water park should be experienced in full.

I'm hoping for a giga but just seeing that B&M is involved is a good sign.

IMG Worlds of Adventure

Marvel superheroes, dinosaurs, and cartoons. This eclectic mix of themes sounds sort of like Islands of Adventure minus Harry Potter, doesn’t it? Except I’m talking about IMG Worlds of Adventure in Dubai. It’s advertised as the world’s largest indoor theme park and it seems as such.

Not only is IMG massive, but it’s gorgeous too. The dark, sprawling roof isn’t the most inviting, but it allows the park to be illuminated. There’s something magical being at a theme park after sunset and at IMG, you have that feel all day long.

Exterior.jpg
Pictures don't do it justice; this building is colossal.

Entrance 2.jpg
An interesting mix of IPs.

IMG Boulevard.jpg
You could say they rolled out the red carpet for me.


I started with the Mack mega, Velociraptor. More specifically, I started with a queue that rivals the Bat and American Eagle in sheer length. I don’t know what kind of crowds IMG forecasted, but I’d poop my pants if it were ever full. I think there were 4-5 sizable rooms with an endless sea of switchbacks.

Instead it was a complete walk-on all day (as was every other ride). I loved Blue Fire when I rode it two years ago, so it was no surprise I also liked Velociraptor. The outdoor section was barren, but the coaster did have a cool pre-launch with a screen big enough to make Universal jealous.

I love Mack launchers, but I do not like Mack launches. Slinky Dog Dash has A+ presentation, but in terms of raw power, that launch is nothing special. And it isn’t even the worst Mack launch I’ve experienced (just wait for Capitol Bullet Train). The exceptions are Blue Fire and Velociraptor. Mack got it right with their first design. This launch has some kick to it.

Velociraptor is inherently rerideable. It’s smooth and a jack-of-all-trades. You have a launch, a funky top hat that rides more like a wave turn, some hangtime-filled inversions, a few spots of air, and a violent (in the best way possible) barrel roll to end the ride. 9 out of 10

Velociraptor Overview.jpg
Unfortunately there's no viewing deck for Velociraptor. That was one feature I loved at Ferrari World.


Next door was Predator, the Gerstlauer EuroFighter. The dinosaur figures and plants around the ride were a nice touch, but I only rode once since my home park has an identical clone. And to be honest, that’s about as often as I ride Untamed per visit as well.

The coaster has a marvelous first drop loaded with ejector air and a fantastic stall. But the coaster has some neck-chopping transitions, particularly on the cutback and helix. It’s a solid coaster given its compactness, but I much prefer the ones with lap bars. 6 out of 10

Predator Overview.jpg
I can't decide if I prefer the bears of Untamed or the dinos of Predator. Both are great!


Forbidden Territory was intriguing. It was a toned-down version of Dinosaur. The vehicles seemed capable of the same range of motion as Disney’s EMVs, but the whole ride seemed to take place in slow motion. I’d estimate the vehicles and motions were performed at 1/3 Dinosaur’s speed.

I also want to call it a budget Dinosaur, but that’s not really fair. The animatronics on this one are no match for the ones on Dinosaur. However, Forbidden Territory doesn’t have any empty sections that have you asking whether or not Dinosaur’s budget was slashed during development. 7 out of 10

Forbidden Territory Sign.jpg
Aka Dinosaur on a budget.

Forbidden Territory Station.jpg
The vehicles are slower versions of Disney's EMVs.


One of my guilty pleasure attractions are slides of death. Few can top the near-vertical slides of the City Museum or the drunk slayer at Oktoberfest, but Adventure Fortress beat those slides in terms of size. It was a gigantic play structure with a slide seemingly as tall as Predator.

Accessing this slide was a tight-squeeze, but I made it. Thankfully I wasn’t the only one struggling. I was followed by an employee. I start my work day with a cup of coffee, but the workers manning the slide have to ascend a 70 foot tower :lol: The slide itself was fun, but not as fast as I hoped. 6 out of 10

Adventure Fortress.jpg
That slide sure beats the ones I used to ride at Chuck E. Cheese.


Marvel Universe felt very reminiscent of the similar land at Islands of Adventure. Everything from the shops to the signage to the character cutouts had me thinking I was in Orlando. Except instead of a massive B&M, the icon of this area was Stark Tower.

Avengers Battle of Ultron was sort of like Spiderman minus the motion simulator. Basically it was a 3D dark ride. If you’re a fan of superhero battles, this ride is for you. The animation may not be as crisp as a Disney or Universal ride, but it sure beats that of your garden variety regional park. 8 out of 10

Avengers Exterior.jpg
Avengers Assemble (just not at Tony's Skydeck).


Stark Tower also houses Tony’s Skydeck. If you read the TPR report from a few years ago, this upscale restaurant looked amazing. It had steak, fish, and all sorts of goodies you often don’t find at a theme park.

Unfortunately it was closed. Further, the employee working Battle for Ultron said it has been closed for a while. Considering it’s still listed on the website, maybe it was closed since I visited during a lighter period? Instead I tried shawarma for the first time as a consolation prize.

Shawarma.jpg
The first time I heard of shawarma was during that Avengers cut scene. The more you know.


Mack spinners are one of the most underrated coaster types if you ask me. I’m a fan of spinners to begin with, but the Mack spinners tend to have more speed an ferocity to them. For that reason, I was really looking forward to Spiderman.

To be honest, I think it just barely cracks the UAE’s top 5 coasters. Technically it’s a clone of Sierra Sidewinder, but it sure doesn’t feel as such when you add in the lights, fog, and cutouts. Those elements make an already disorienting coaster even more disorienting. 8 out of 10

Spiderman First Drop.jpg
I used my Spider Sense to time this photo...or maybe it was just the audio cues.


Thor Thunder Spin was a royal pain to ride. I think it’s easier to get opening night tickets for the Avengers. It was a similar situation to my visit to Yas Waterworld, but the park was so empty that Thor couldn’t meet its 10 passenger minimum requirement.

Six of us hung around for 15 minutes as the ride operator enthusiastically badgered guests to ride. Eventually she courted a family of four. Success! But not so fast. She whipped out the measuring stick. We nervously bit our nails, but the youngest was just barely tall enough.

The ride itself was the best top spin I’ve ridden outside of Phantasialand’s. The theming really added to the experience. The underrated star in particular was the mind-warping curved wall. It completely messed with my equilibrium. Then the program itself had more flips than you’ll find in the US, especially since these rides are going the way of the dinosaur. 8 out of 10

Thor Thunder Spin.jpg
Outside of my one ride, I never saw this run all day.


Like Islands of Adventure, IMG has a Hulk. Except this one is a one-of-a-kind 3D simulator. I’d describe it as your 360 degree theater on steroids. The secret sauce is the ride vehicle. I figured it’d rock like most simulators, but this one spun like a top. The spinning pulled some serious Gs too!

This motion combined with the frenetic action was overwhelming. The 360 degree screen is cool, but being restrained in a seat causes you to miss any action that takes place behind you. Thankfully you can see about 4/5 of the film uninhibited, but the periodic blind spots were a slight bummer. 8 out of 10

Hulk Entrance.jpg
It's not quite a B&M, but this Hulk was way wilder than I expected.


I was more of a Disney and Warner Bros. kid growing up. So while the IPs of the Cartoon Network land didn’t appeal to me, I do have to admit the land was quite vibrant with the bright colors and booming music. Plus having a suspended monorail constantly in motion helped.

So I guess I’ll start with that monorail, Adventure Time: a name so long that it beats Gotham City Gauntlet Escape from Arkham Asylum. I’ve ridden a few monorails, but I’ve never ridden one that tries to tell a story. And that’s exactly what Adventure Time does.

In between the aerial tour of the land, there are a few indoor scenes. Maybe it’s because I don’t watch Adventure Time, but I was lost. I felt like I was in the middle of an acid trip. But it was a happy trip at least. Oh and that song is still stuck in my head. 7 out of 10

Adventure Time Overview.jpg
The Cartoon Network area was quite lively.

Adventure Time Dark Ride.jpg
So this is what it's like to do acid.


I was ecstatic to see the Amazing Ride of Gumball using the same ride system as Ani-Mayhem. While good, it had some drawbacks. For one, the IP. There may be some IPs I’m not enamored with (see Winnie the Pooh), but I just found Gumball unbearable. Maybe I’m just getting old. :lol:

The other issue I found was the brevity at each screen. The screen-based shooting was a ton of fun, especially since you could lose points if you hit the wrong thing, but I just wish it went on longer. Still it’s a heck of a lot better than most shooters thanks to that ride system. 8 out of 10

Amazing Ride of Gumball Queue.jpg
Gumball isn't amazing, but the ride is quite good.


Last but not least, there was the Haunted Hotel. Free of any IP, the Haunted Hotel looked incredible. The park is definitely proud of their haunt. There’s no better example of that than the fact that this haunt fully fleshes out the story beforehand through a preshow.

The experience is restricted to guests under the age of 15, so I was intrigued just how scary it’d be. My takeaway is that the UAE doesn’t really have haunts. There were 5-6 rooms and each room only had one actor. But that actor ran around chasing us. For me, the thrill is the initial jump scare. But the locals were pooping their pants and cowering in the corner at this.

While the scares weren’t quite what I expected, the set design was top notch. Ultimately I’d say this is a hair above your seasonal haunt, but not quite as good as the full-time haunts like the ones at Liseberg or Morey’s. 7 out of 10

Haunted Hotel.jpg
The Haunted Hotel had top notch presentation.


I ended my night with an hour marathon of Velociraptor. It was easily the best attraction in the park. For most of those rides, I was the lone rider. I also ended my night with an ungodly amount of steps. The park permitted one reride, but required guests to walk around afterwards.

I did notice the train had a noticeable shimmy to it. It wasn’t rough or uncomfortable, but it was quite loud. It sounded like someone jangling a box of screws. I noticed the same thing on the Capitol Bullet Train the following day, so maybe it was the desert heat?

Velociraptor Entrance.jpg
Being blasted into the bright sun was quite shocking for my eyes.


IMG Worlds of Adventure was a very well-rounded park. I can’t think of any area where the park struggled. It had some nice attractions, good theming, and a friendly staff. As a whole, the UAE had excellent service but I think IMG was the best in this area.

Global Village

What if Epcot’s World Showcase was a standalone theme park? If you mix that concept with a carnival, you get Dubai’s Global Village.

Entry Plaza.jpg
World Showcase + Funfair = Global Village


Global Village is a rare seasonal park in Dubai, as it’s open just under half the year. The park is less than a mile away from IMG, so it was a no-brainer to visit after the parks close. While most major parks in Dubai close by 8, Global Village is open until 12 or 1 am.

The first thing that surprised me was the sheer size of Global Village. The list of countries is extensive. With just two hours, it was impossible to visit them all. Even with a full day, I think it would be impossible to visit them all. There are 75 in total represented with almost 30 pavilions.

Main Entrance.jpg
So many countries, so little time.

Egypt.jpg
This place is huge!

Japan.jpg
I miss Japan.


And that doesn’t even include the carnival area. Just in case the rides closed early (they didn’t), I decided to start there. While it’s no Oktoberfest, the ride collection far exceeded what you’d find at your typical US carnival.

Fairgrounds.jpg
Don't worry, I didn't forget about the rides.


Unfortunately there’s no all-day wristband. I forget the exact price, but I believe the major rides cost about $7-10 each. For that reason, I prioritized the two coasters and two big flats.

Carnivals will never be mistaken for Disney theming (unless we’re talking Chester and Hester’s Dinorama), but the rides at Global Village at least got creative with their names. Most rides were named after a different country. It was a small touch, but it helped give the carnival some character.

ShangHigh.jpg
I have to admit, that was a clever name.

Sydney Kangaroo.jpg
Just in case you didn't know kangaroos were from Australia.

New York Jump.jpg
I have no clue WTF New York Jump was.

No 1.jpg
Ok so they got lazy with this (No) one, but most rides at least tried with their names.


Speaking of character, I want to note the staff. When you think of carnies, what do you think of? I think of ex-cons and Toothless Tom. That’s not what you find at Global Village. They didn’t feel sketchy at all. They were the friendly and outgoing employees you’d find at a Holiday World.

The big coaster was a Vekoma family boomerang named London Loop. All the fair’s rides appeared to be temporary with the exception of this coaster. The coaster was smooth and had some thrills on the backwards part, but outside of that nothing from a ride perspective stood out. 5 out of 10

The operators stood out though. They struck up a 5-10 minute conversation with me while waiting for additional riders. They were excited to see a visitor from the US and were dying to know what my thoughts were about Texas. :lol:

London Loop Entrance.jpg
I can't decide whether I prefer the adult or family boomerangs better.


The smaller coaster is yet another one of those SBF spinners, Mumbai Xpress. These have to be one of the most common coaster models of all-time at this point. This was a rarer 3 loop model, but I could hardly tell a difference from the 2 loop ones. 2 out of 10

Mumbai Xpress.jpg
I'm not quite sure how this ride relates to India.


The star ride was Global Burj, a colossal drop tower. A 280 foot tall drop tower is terrifying on its own, but it’s especially terrifying when it’s a portable one at a funfair. The drop was quite good; the start delivered a nice freefall sensation and it lasted a long time.

But the strength was the build-up. For one, the views of Global Village were outstanding. Seeing a birds eye view of all the illuminated pavilions was magical. This was accompanied by music and taunting by the operators. We must have been kept atop the tower for at least a minute. 9 out of 10

Global Burj.jpg
Portable drop towers are among the freakiest rides if you ask me.


I also tried Fly France, the Gerstlauer sky roller. I own these rides. Usually I can get at least 50 flips. However, I could only get 12 flips on this one. Was it a short cycle? No, it was actually quite long. Rather I don’t think this one was well lubricated.

I could feel significant friction trying to move the wings. Then once I got my first flip, I almost stalled out. Anyone who has ridden these sky rollers know you can go into autopilot and rotate at a ludicrous rate after that first flip. The flips I did get were still thrilling and I felt accomplished. 7 out of 10

Fly France.jpg
I went with Fly France but Jamaican Drum looked intriguing.


In terms of the pavilions, my favorite was the Americas pavilion simply because of how comical it was. I was intrigued what their perception of US culture would be and I died laughing. The main midway is themed to the wild west. Maybe that’s why the London Loop crew was so fascinated by Texas. :lol:

It got even better at the shops. Most pavilions sold trinkets themed to their country or cultural items. Meanwhile the Americas pavilion had shops such as Build-a-Bear Workshop, 7-Eleven, and a few air-brushed t-shirt places. I think it goes without saying I didn’t buy anything.

Americas.jpg
Looking good so far.

Americas Wild West.jpg
Ok I may have stepped back in time a bit, but at least it looks nice.

Americas Build-a-Bear.jpg
So this is what they think of America.


The other highlight of Global Village was the food. The pavilions sold food native to their respective country and the midway had all your usual fair favorites. I was hoping to find some gyoza at Japan, but I came up empty. Instead I went with a skirt burger and a pizza cone.

Skirt Burger.jpg
A skirt burger is sort of hard to explain, but it's delicious.

Pizza Cone.jpg
The cheese to sauce ratio wasn't quite right, but it was decent.


Global Village is a very unique place. I wouldn’t quite classify it as a theme park. Rather it’s more of an upscale carnival. But it has such a unique atmosphere that it really needs to be experienced.

Interesting. Do you have to buy an admission ticket to get in, or is it like Oktoberfest and you only pay for the attractions that you want to do?

It was something like $5-10 USD to get in and then you pay for any rides you want to do.
