US-based Six Flags has reportedly pledged to build the world’s biggest roller coaster ride in Dubai.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the tallest roller coaster in the world is in New Jersey and operated by Six Flags while the world’s fastest roller coaster is in Abu Dhabi at Ferrari World.
“There will be rides that are bigger, better, faster, broader than any rides in the world,” John Odum, senior vice president of international park operations at Six Flags was quoted as saying.
Both Abu Dhabi and Dubai are encouraging the development of theme parks to help boost foreign tourist arrivals as oil prices slump, causing an economic slowdown in the region. More info
