Man Brings His Taxi Driver to Theme Park After Finding Out He's Never Been


Liam Murphy, a test engineer from Cork, Ireland, was visiting the United Arab Emirates for work when he decided to take a fun trip to indoor theme park Ferrari World. When he discovered that his taxi driver had never visited the theme park, he invited him to join.

On Sunday, Murphy was in the taxi heading towards the theme park when he realized that his taxi driver, Shakiha, was planning to wait in the car for four hours until Murphy was finished at the park. Given that Shakiha had never been to the historic theme park, Murphy decided to bring the taxi driver with him for the day-long adventure.

Murphy even paid for Shakiha's ticket, which cost just over $60. The story has gone viral as Murphy is winning the hearts of people all over the Internet.



The two men enjoyed their day together. Shakiha had his first roller coaster ride on the fastest in the world and Murphy had someone to keep him company throughout the day. Murphy told Buzzed News that Shakiha has lived in Abu Dhabi for 14 years. He has taken countless passengers to the theme park without ever experiencing it himself. Murphy said:

"Every time he drops passengers off he stays in the car for the day. I decided to bring him along for the laugh. He was great entertainment. I bought him some pizza on the way home. His family are in India and he said he sends money home each month. I felt sorry for him."


Murphy said that although Shakiha felt a bit ill from all the rides, the two men had a great day together.
