The firm has already attained several records such as the construction of Ferrari Rossa, the world’s fastest roller coaster in Abu Dhabi.

Stakotra do not create small attractions for travelling carnivals but specialise in producing the big skeletons for roller coasters, ferris wheels, water coasters and adrenaline towers.
