Ferrari World Abu Dhabi

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi was created in tribute to Ferrari’s passion, heritage, excellence, innovation, and performance. The theme park is frequented by F1 superstars like Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso. Spanning an area of 86,000 m², each area and attraction in the Park brings to life a different part of the Ferrari story, from Cinema Maranello with its film about Enzo Ferrari, to Formula Rossa capturing the speed, power, and freedom of a F1™ car. No matter your age, you will surely find something suited to your preferences among the park’s 20 unique attractions.

 

1. Experience the world’s fastest rollercoaster

The ride starts with a hydraulic launch that utilises the same speed used to send planes into the sky from aircraft carriers. An amazing speed of 240 km/h is reached on the ride’s 2.2 km-long track. Buckle up, put on your safety goggles, and enjoy the adrenaline rush.

2. Let your kids experience the thrill of driving a Ferrari

Children can take part in the Junior Auto School and learn more about driving regulations, traffic signs, and proper road behaviour. Following a short educational film, the young GT drivers will receive instruction from trained experts, after which they will get to take the wheel of their own Ferrari, a fun-sized 430 GT Spider, and practice what they have learned on an improvised track.

4. Prepare yourself for a unique 4D virtual experience

Take the whole family on a virtual journey in one of the world’s most sophisticated 4D simulators. Fly along hillsides and venture deep below the surface of the ocean in your search for Nello, a mischievous little driver. Feel the heat of the jungle, or the cold of the ice caves as the temperature shifts, lights change, and moisture fills the air as Nello’s adventure brings all your senses to life in a way only Ferrari can.
