The world's largest roller coaster is opening in Dubai!

Dubai doesn't tend to do things in ones, they do things on a ridiculous scales, hence why a million theme parks are opening in the UAE at the moment. But we're not complaining! 

But just as we prepare ourselves for the opening of IMG Worlds of Adventure and Dubai Parks and Resorts, we get told that Six Flags is planning on opening in Dubai too, and with the launch of the new theme park, come another comes ANOTHER world record broken!

When you determine a roller coaster, to be the largest, it's not clear what it will be the largest in! Will it be the longest? The tallest? Have the largest drop? We don't know! So lets take a look at what the new Six Flags roller coaster could be competing with!
