Last time I was in UAE was 2010. It's insane how much that area has changed. Awesome report.

"It sort of has a 'Freemont Street' kind of vibe except with a lot more Ferrari's and a lot less Coors Light." :lmao:

Thanks for all the pictures of the classic stand up video arcade games, it is always good to relive my misspent childhood. ;) And now I will 'waste' even more time checking out your Retro Games Fan page.

If/when you visit VF, WOF or Adventureland check out (Google) a place called UP/DOWN. They call themselves an Arcade Bar with craft beer. All classic stand up or table top video arcade games and pinball. It started in Des Moines and now they have the three locations. I have yet to visit the one in Kansas City but the other two are good fun with the Minneapolis one being a bit better just due to size and having more games. If you love retro arcade you will want to check them out sometime.

Thanks for the update! I love how your trip updates not only cover the parks/roller coasters, but random cool places like the VR park and arcade.

Dubai is a place I really need to visit someday. Maybe when we have a different president though...

The UAE is one of the Muslim countries our president loves because he has a golf resort and gets money from them! We did a good 'US Apology Tour' while there, and it was interesting how so many people thought EVERYONE in the US voted for Trump. We explained that less than half of the country voted for him and don't share his values. So we're trying to help with how the world views Americans!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Thanks for the report. It's always nice to read about places you know from someone else's perspective.

Thank you for your service! I may have to do the same when I go to Europe - I can always play the California card though. ;)

On another note, Dubai looks absolutely amazing and it just keeps getting better. I'm glad they rebounded from the economic slowdown in the late 2000s and a lot of projects are resuming. Within the next few years I'll have to make a trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this TR.

^Yup. I am absolutely playing that card when I go to Germany. I live in Nevada, which is not exactly CA or MA, but I can play the "Trump did not win my state" card.

Though this still makes me a bit nervous (I am 20, and leaving the country alone for the first time).
