World’s fastest rollercoaster, a spellbinding live performance, multi-sensory adventures and more beckon visitors to a legendary entertainment experience.
You know you’ve arrived the moment you step into Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s spectacular space frame structure. The futuristic skeletal metal frame, the billowing Ferrari flags and the sleek amazing racing triumphs, sweeping visitors on a multi-sensory adventure that takes in everything from the surge of adrenaline of a high-speed car chase to the vistas, sounds, aromas and tastes of Ferrari’s Italian homeland.
There’s plenty of fun to be had with the entire family. Designed to appeal to all ages, families can indulge their competitive side on attractions like the exhilarating dueling coaster Fiorano GT Challenge or on Fast Lane – a quiz-style game that tests one’s racing knowledge.
Kids can test their threshold for thrills and use all their senses on a fantastical 4-D adventure through deep green jungles, icy caves and ravines, the bottom of the ocean and the mouth of a fiery volcano on Speed of Magic – one of the Park’s most popular rides.
Or imagine a Ferrari being the very first car you ever drive? Children visiting the Park can lay claim to that privilege by taking a spin on a Ferrari F430 GT Spider – albeit a scaled down version – learning to make the perfect hairpin turn at the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi Driving School, before heading out onto the Junior Grand Prix circuit and racing along in stunning scaled down F1 Scuderia Ferrari single seaters.
The world’s largest indoor and only Ferrari-branded theme park lies at the heart of Yas Island – the UAE’s most exciting leisure destination – its unique ground-hugging form echoing that of a huge red sand dune emblazoned with the iconic "Prancing Horse" Ferrari logo.
"Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is one of the first eye-catching landmarks people see as they fly into Abu Dhabi – it grabs people’s imagination even before they touch down in the UAE," says Andy Keeling, Park Manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
