Ferrari opened the doors to the "Ferrari World Abu Dhabi" theme park for the first time yesterday, revealing the details of the world's largest indoor theme park.
The 2.2 million sq. ft. theme park sits beneath a huge red roof, complete with the Ferrari logo. And on the floor of the theme park is the world's largest Ferrari logo that takes up 930,000sq.ft. of floor space. Under the roof are more than 20 attractions including the world's fastest roller coaster, Formula Rossa, which can reach speeds of up to 150mph.
"The park that just four years ago was a project, an idea, maybe even a too ambitious idea, is now a fantastic reality,” said Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo. “Everyone at Ferrari is grateful to the people who have worked without rest for the last two years to make it happen.”
Other attractions include "Speed of Magic," a 4D film, and "Made in Maranello," a virtual reality tour of Maranello. There is also a roller coaster where people sit in Ferrari F430 pods and a recreation of the Ferrari motor home from the Formula 1 paddock.
The park's official opening date has been postponed, however, due to the passing of Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al-Qasimi, Emir of Ras al-Khaimah. The park was open on Thursday to selected members of the international press. When it does open, tickets will cost 225 AED ($60).
