DUBAI - As part of Hilton’s new innovative web platform that offers a range of exclusive experiences across the hospitality group’s luxury brands, Waldorf Astoria is offering guests a host of action-packed experiences that will surely win the hearts of adventure-seekers and adrenaline junkies alike.
The new Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah Supercar Experience offers guests the exciting opportunity to supercharge their stay with a high-powered, fuel-injected ride that will put them well and truly in the driving seat. The experience gives guests the chance to get behind the wheel of one of the world’s most powerful and exotic sports cars as they explore the emirate’s famous winding mountain roads and coastal highways.
Aimed at supercar enthusiasts, the package allows guests to choose between a Ferrari 488 Spider, Lamborghini Huracan or Porsche 911 S. Drivers can opt to hit the road for a choice of 2, 3 or 4 days with various driving distances ranging from 600km to 1,200km available.
For those not familiar with the back roads and rugged beauty of Ras Al Khaimah’s famous Hajjar mountains, a guide will show you all the best driving spots to let you soak up the sites and get the most out of these incredible driving machines. Alternatively, guests can always pick up a guide book and go it alone to discover the emirate for themselves.

Guests will strap in at 1,680 metres above sea level and reach speeds of up to 150kmph over the 2.6km distance on the world’s longest zip-line.
