Re: ECC in the UAE

Thanks for your response Ben. As I said, I really hope I'm wrong, and that all these extremely interesting projects open on time and are fully operational by March 2017. The trip does look very good and - if these parks do open - I will definitely be signing up for it. But still think I'll hang fire...

Re: ECC in the UAE

Ferrari World has been open for a number of years. I've been there on three occasions.

Re: ECC in the UAE

I've already visited some of these parks, and would be very interested indeed in making another visit to the UAE. This trip does look very promising. However, given the well-documented history of significant delays associated with the opening of almost all visitor attractions (including amusement pa...
