You may hear me talk in class about architecture and advancements in Technology going on in Dubai.   In Abu Dhabi this time (capital of the United Arab Emirates, U.A.E.) is a hotel like no other.  The Yas Hotel is the only hotel in the world with a Formula One racetrack to go through the hotel.  Built on a harbor so visitors can pull their yachts and boats right up to the hotel, the hotel features some one of a kind design implements.  I bring up this hotel because it is now home to the Roller Coaster with the World Speed Record of 144 mph, Formula Rossa, a Ferrari themed roller coaster.

(You must write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

A)  Reflect and write on why don’t we use this type of technology to make our hotels more memorable?

B)  Is this a place that would interest you to stay and why?

    A.) We don’t use this type of technology because people cant make them because we cant afford them because were already in debt and that could put us further in debt then we already are.
    B.) Yeah because it looks fun and you don,t have to leave the hotel to have fun so that makes it more cheaper to do a lot of other stuff.

    A. We don’t use this type of technology to make our hotels more memorable because were already in debt and we cant afford it. Also we are not physically capable Smart enough to even know how to make it.

    B. This is a place that would interest me because it has a roller coaster, the fastest one. I enjoy taking risk and riding the fastest roller coaster would be a fun risk I would like to take! Also it has a built on harbor and I like riding in a boat so I think it would be a lot of fun, and a new interesting, different experience!

    A.) I think the reason why here in America we dont use technology like that is because we have probably never heard of this type of technology. Also i think we dont have technology like this because maybe we dont have the money to build a hotel like that or the advanced equitment as they do in different countries

    B.) This hotel would interest me and yes i would like to take a vacation and stay and that hotel because its the only hotel in the world that has a race track and just to tell people that im one of the people that has stayed there would be really cool

    a. We might be in too much debt. Also, I think that we are not as high- tech as some other places. I think that it is only a matter of time before something like this does happen in the U.S though. I bet that people are probably planning, or waiting for something like this.

    b. Yeah, I think it just looks interesting. Also, I would like to stay somewhere that has a world record for 144mph of a roller coaster. I think just the way it looks could be a tourist attraction. The biggest thing to bring in customers is probably the roller coaster, that is why it mostly interest me. the look of it is probably just, ” icing on the cake.”

    A). We probably don’t use this technology to make our hotels more memorable because we might not have enough money to make hotels like this. These hotels cost a lot of money and the US might not have that type of money to be building hotels like the Yas hotel. Some people might not even find hotels like the Yas hotel, fascinating like others do.

    B). Yes, this place would interest me to stay. It would interest me to stay because how fun would it be to stay at a hotel like that? I don’t think i would ever get bored. I would always be fascinated with something. Plus, its right on a harbor. Im sure it has a pretty view of the water.

    A. We don’t use this type of technology to make our hotels more memorable because were already our community can’t afford it. Also we won’t know how to built it. We wouldn’t know where to put it. Also, if we built it in one place then other states would also want to have it as well.

    B. This hotel would be very interesting to me because of the roller coasters, also they would have a lot of stuff to do there. I think it would be a great experience for me. I think it would be interesting to have it in our state.

    A) i think we dont use this technology becuase we cant afford it and we probably dont have the right builders to build this . it would cost alot of money to do something like this and it will be a hefty paycheck for the people building it .
    B) yes , but it would probably be alot of money to stay in this place . it also has a rollar coaster in it so that would make it even funner .

    A). we dont use it because it might be a fail and we dont have the material. and maybe its to much money, and nobody would want to go there only cause its too much money.

    B). i would because it looks nice and you can watch races for free and it just looks lik a nice place to stay. and i would stay because it looks like a fish like a big gold fish with different colors.

    A. We don’t use this type of technology to make our hotels more memorable because we have too many crazy people today in Kentucky and they don’t know how to take care of the world. You will see a lot of people in the downtown area and they have a lot of things broken that needs to be fixed from people shooting or fighting. Also it would be no point to make a fancy hotel like that. We already have nice fancy hotels in Kentucky.

    B. Yes it could possibly be a place for me to stay at because it looks really nice on the outside. And the inside will be even better. It has the nice lights on the outside that change colors in the light. Just seems so pretty. I would feel special and comfortable in that hotel. It would be a nice little vacation because i know they have nice things in the hotel that would interest me. Also inside at night time every thing glows up. Would be really nice like i was in a lazor tag room.

    A. I don’t think we use this type of technology because, we have amusement parks and hotels are just to stay in. I also think that the Yas hotel is better to stay in then the U.S ‘s hotels cause they have more stuff you can do inside and you don’t have to leave the hotel to do anything. I think that the main a traction is the fastest roller coaster, I mean are hotels have swimming pools and that’s about it. But the Yas hotel has a lot more things that will make it memorable, then the U.S’s hotels.

    B. Yes. This place will interest me cause of the things you can do. There is a lot of options to choose from like the race track that goes through the whole hotel, that fastest roller coaster is the world records (it goes 144 miles per hour, it is called the Formula Rossa. It is a Ferrari themed roller coaster). It would be a super fun experience to go to that hotel.

    A. Well first off we don’t make a lot of hotels like this because we don’t have the money and were more worried about war. we wouldn’t want to fix something really nice and then attackers come and attach it and destroy it. plus i think were not as high tech as others.

    b. of course , it looks so cool and i like that it has all thoes lights. i would think it would be really nice to be in there , and it would be ice to see something different 🙂

    A) I think that why we don’t because we don’t have as much money and are economy is already so bad that are gas is 4$ and we cant afford really to get these kind of buildings. Another reason is why make these buildings when they have a chance of getting flooded are river is close to are downtown and we get rain badly, so the rains just gonna ruin the beautiful building. Another is we don’t have much room either downtown there’s not a lot of room so where would they put the buildings??
    B) I would be very interested to stay here, it is very neat and awesome and i could live there! It looks fancy, rich and like i would never get bored.

    a) we probably wouldn’t use that type of stuff here because we don’t have a beach or anything to dock only like lakes and rivers and stuff nothing big here i Kentucky but if we did i think it would be pretty cool but expensive to be able to get in they wouldn’t get much customers because it might be out of alot of people’s price range!

    b) this would be a great place to stay in so nice and beautiful inside everything somebody would dream about in a hotel/ motel! its great to have your boat or yacht or whatever docked right on the edge to be able to walk right on in, good service and everything!

    A.) we don’t use this type of technology in our hotel’s because these days our economy is bad. If our economy is bad that means we spend more money. If we keep spending more money then there isn’t enough money to buy this type of technology. Also, if we had enough money to buy this technology, there has to be somebody to build it. So we would also have to hire someone to build it and put it together.

    B.) Yes, it would be a place i would like to stay at because i really like riding roller coasters. I also like going fast in a car, bike, roller coasters etc… the question states that the roller coaster goes 144 mph so i would like it. I would probably be scared for the first few minutes until i get used to it. this hotel would be pretty cool if we had one in louisville.

    A.) there are a few reasons why we don’t use this technology for our hotels. One of those reasons is that there isn’t enough funding in this economy. And another is that the government doesn’t want to pay for stuff such as hotel architecture and want to spend it on other things such as medicare and other government needs.

    B.) Yes because I could wake up to race in the morning for entertainment and go on boat ride in the afternoon for lunch. Also at night I could have dinner at many of the selections of restaurants.

    Part A; We don’t use that type of technology because, personally I think that some states in America aren’t as…um… Economically advanced as the U.A.E is. It would take allot of money to build something like that.
    ___________________________________________________
    Part B; I would stay at the hotel, I think it would be really cool. But I think I would be kinda scared and sick because I hate oceans and rivers and stuff so riding a boat would ruin it. I think the lights would be really cool! It’s just a waist of money to stat just for the lights tho.

    A) The reason in my opinion why we don’t do this is because the country is already in the hole money wise plus on top of that they would take a crude ton of money in witch would cause the price of it to go up and they are already expensive as it is and people wouldn’t be able to afford something like that unless they had some major cash on them

    B) Yea it would but at the same time wouldn’t it would because i mean look at it, its so flashy and cool but at the same time like i stated in part A the money cost would be to much and on top of that would it would cost to have some fun, eat, and stay for more then one night it just isn’t the most affordable place for someone to stay that doesn’t have money but yes it would interest me to stay and what not just not get a room or order anything

    b) yea, because it would be fun it would be a cool thing to be able to ride a rollar coaster in a hotal, but i dont think its all soo cool to have a rollar coaster and a race track at a hotal, and plus wouldnt that be loud and distracting to people trying to relax or anything.

    a) By having a race track bulit in or connected to a hotel can be hazardous because there could be idiotic people who want to do something they will regret and may damage the hotel or hurt someone. This could also cost the government millions just to have some fancy hotel, that’s what the Plaza Hotel is for!!! Just think, do we really need a race track in a hotel or is it just make us look good??
    b) I would like to visit a place like that though because it looks cool!!!
