There are also magnificent rides that are featuring at the Bahrain Grand Prix for the very first time, including a Ferris Wheel, a Star Flyer and a Venetian Carousel.
An interactive F1 Fanzone will give race-goers a taste of what it is like to be in motorsport’s top flight, The Mummy’s Tomb will give you chills should you be brave enough to make a visit, and everyone will be able to enjoy the various kids’ activities, carnival games and roaming performers on hand including buskers, balloon-makers, dancers and magicians, to name a few.
