No. 9. Bandit Bomber in Yas Waterworld, Abu Dhabi

The Middle East has no shortage of thrill rides! The Bandit Bomber is the best in the region mainly because of its heat-friendly feature – water bombs and laser guns are in every seat, said implements of which set off waterfalls and geysers. In the extreme heat of the country, these water features add to the fun of riding at 60 kph at a maximum height of 35 meters along a track length of 515 meters.


Orkanen - a colossal new ride!

Vekoma Rides Custom Designed Suspended Family Coaster "Orkanen" opened In June 2013 and guests LOVE IT.

"Orkanen" is the largest new ride ever opened in Fårup. The Orkanen roller-coaster travels both over and UNDER the water - the only one in northern Europe to do so.

With your feet dangling free in the air, Orkanen takes you first of all to a height of 20 meters and then - at a speed of 75 km/h - rushes you down 5 meter below the water, and once exiting the tunnel, through a 120 degrees banked horseshoe followed at high speed by horizontal loops and s-curves all high speed nearly touching the surrounding trees and bushes. These close encounters even more enhance the speed and excitement making this ride a thrilling Family Coaster for all!
