Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi


By William Stolerman

After much hype and anticipation, the Ferrari theme park has opened in Abu Dhabi becoming officially the largest indoor theme park in the world.

Dubbed Ferrari World, it contains the fastest roller coaster ever created which replicates the speeds and forces experienced in a Formula 1 car. The ride propels visitors from 0-149 mph in just 4.9 seconds but if you’re looking for something slightly more pedestrian there’s also a Scalextric-style track where the cabins are replica production Ferraris.

The multi-billion dollar project is vast (spanning 861,000 square feet) and Abu Dhabi expects it to attract 10,000 visitors per day.

Mubarak al Muhairi, director general of tourism, said: “The Ferrari park is a major leap forward in our leisure proposition as it has enormous appeal regionally and internationally.”

Its red roof is modelled on the side profile of a Ferrari GT and features the largest prancing horse logo ever created.
