The Roller Coaster WARS have been raging for years.  Ever since Cedar Point opened Magnum back in 2000. Every park goes for the biggest, fastest, tallest, biggest drop and most interesting roller coaster to bring people into their park.  Well the small country of U.A.E. and their capital city Abu Dhabi want in on the wars.  They just opened Formula Rossa, a Ferrari themed Roller Coaster that has taken the world speed record at 144 mph.

A) Is this roller coaster interesting enough to be in the running for best coaster in the world?  Why or why not?

B) Do you think people would travel to Abu Dhabi to ride this roller coaster? Why or why not?

C) If you analyze the theme parks you know about, what would make this roller coaster more appealing or less appealing than parks you go to?

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.
