The excitement of Yas Island is now in Dubai. For the next 12 months, residents and visitors to Dubai will be able to enjoy the much loved attractions from Yas Island’s Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and YasWaterworld while realizing how close the world-class destination really is - straight ahead!

Travellers on Sheikh Zayed Road will surely not miss the city’s firstdestination 3D billboard display towering over Dubai between Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Mall. The 3D display showcases the most iconic rides in the region, from the world’s fastest rollercoaster, Formula Rossa, to YasWaterworld’sDawwama, the world’s largest tornado ride, and features agiant arrow pointing the way to Yas Island and close proximity to Dubai.

Ms. Jida Itani, Senior Coordinator of Yas Island Destination Management, commented on the display saying: "The creation of this innovative fixturewas motivated by the desire to further encourage the visitors and residents of Dubai to look next door for their big adventure. This display is part of Yas Island’s commitment to further increase local tourism within the UAE and to promote Yas Island with friends, family and business travellers also enjoying Dubai."

The creative tailor-made 3D display stemmed from the recent 33% growth in tourism in Abu Dhabi from residents of the UAE over the past year.
