Opened at the Grand Prix Formula 1 United Arab Emirates in November 2010, the Ferrari Theme Park is an amusement park that should be talked about for years to come.
Located 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi, on Yas Island, this is an ideal occupation for a day with friends or family.
That cost hundreds of millions of euros to build, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is the largest indoor amusement park in the world. It was done entirely indoors in order to remain open all year round, even in summer when temperatures are very high.
Easily visible from the sky, a huge logo ferrari (the largest Ferrari logo in the world) is grafted on the huge red roof of the park.
The major attraction of the park is a roller coaster called "Formula Rossa". This roller coaster is the world's fastest. And it is true that his statistics are impressive:
it goes from 0 to 100 km / h in 2 seconds
it goes from 0 to 240 km / h in 4.9 seconds
its maximum speed is 240 km / h
visitors cashing 1.7B
the steeper curve is bent to 70 °
The speed is such that the occupants of the lead car must wear special glasses to protect themselves from the wind. The launching pad (right of photo) propels tourists at an impressive speed, sticking to the seat of the train as a formula 1. Thrills guaranteed.
Apart from the main attraction of the Formula Rossa, you can scare you in the G-Force Tower (a tower that propels you over 60 meters high), visit inside a Ferrari motor boat (an attraction bit disappointing), or 3D movie experience or dynamic cinema.
Driving simulators are also available to the public (in photo). The sensations are breathtaking in these simulators used by professional drivers. Warning, these simulators require that you book turn by getting a ticket in advance at the booth. Both professional simulators also require an additional AED 75 (the smaller ones are free), but the experience is worth it.
The park is open every day of the week except Monday. Schedules (subject to change) are listed on the site: http://www.ferrariworldabudhabi.com.
The park opens quite late (noon) but closes at 22h on weekdays and midnight on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. It is best to stay until closing, since this is where the queues are shorter.
Issue price, the entry was costing 225 AED early 2011. Food, one is forced to eat in the many restaurants of the park is quite expensive.
