Varaždin Air show CIAV 2018

For two days we have the Air show in my hometown.

I went yesterday and it was awesome.

There were many planes, old and newer that made lots of acrobatics in the sky.

Also there were some helicopters and special forces that showed us what they do in special situations.

The most interesting was the F18 hornet.

We were all waiting for this particular plane and it was fantastic.

You could also make pictures with all the handsome pilots from different countries.

Yas Water World

  We spend a whole day in Yas water world and it was awesome. It’s a water park with lot of water slides, some are fun and relaxing and some are adventurous. You can choose what you like. There is also a section for smaller children, wave pool, free fall and a rollercoaster. Floors are … Continue reading

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi

Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi is an amusement park that is inside Yas Mall. Indoor amusement park.

As the name said it is all about the Ferrari.


So if you are a fan of cars and especially Ferrari this is a place to visit.

It has roller coasters  and different rides, but there is also some Ferraris in display to look at, karting, movie about creating a Ferrari, driving experiences…

You pay a entrance fee which is not  cheap but if you buy it online and in advance you can get a discount to 15% and the best deal is if you buy combo ticket for Yas Water World and Ferrari World.

Most attractions are for free but for some you have to pay extra. Like the karting which is the cheapest and only one we payed for. Others  were more expensive and we didn’t want to pay more.

Here are the attractions we tried:

Bell’ Italia is the ride in a retro car through the Italy, it’s a slow ride and suitable for everyone. It’s just to bad that some Italian music wasn’t playing.

Benno’s Great Race is something for the children, also a slow ride through the world of Benno who is a mouse.

Cinema Maranello is a captivating film about how Enzo Ferrari made his  motoring dream become a reality.

Flying Aces is a rollercoaster  and a good one. I liked it.

Formula Rossa – they say it’s the fastest roller coaster. You get goggles and  you are blasted 240 km/h in 4.9 seconds . Good rollercoaster.

Galleria Ferrari is a gallery with collection of unique Ferrari’s.

Karting Academy is where you can take a ride in a karting car, you pay extra for it.

La piazza stage is where the performers make they shows .

Made in Maranello is a tour of the Ferrari factory where you can see how Ferrari is made.

Speed of magic is a 4D attraction.


Turbo track is a ride where you get shoot very fast forward and then come back slowly. It’s kind of cool but also very short.

Tyre twist is like the cups in other amusement parks. You sit in a tire and turn around until you get sick J

Viaggio in Italia – Take your seat, be elevated high into the dome of this multi-sensory simulator and look at the  spectacular Italian landscape. This one was very interesting because you get lifted very high but you really don’t have a feeling that you are so high.

Fiorano GT Challenge is another roller coaster  with parallel tracks and two coasters go in the same time – it’s like a race.  On this rollercoaster behind us was a obese guy who couldn’t get out of the chair and was stuck. I don’t know how they took im out .

Also there is a place where you can drive a remote control cars or a boat through the Venice.


It’s fun to spend few hours there, but you don’t need a whole day for it.

And because it’s indoor it’s not hot.

Radisson Blue Hotel

Hotel is not far from the Airport, 15-20 minutes by car. We stayed here for 5 nights and the room was nice and clean, only the curtains were not nice, they should change them. They look old and not very clean. The breakfast was very good, a lot to choose from. The staff at the … Continue reading
