Why Ferrari World Abu Dhabi
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is the world’s only Ferrari branded theme park, bringing the true Ferrari story to life and immersing guests in the exhilarating world of Ferrari. Through more than 20 rides and attractions inspired by the cars themselves, the drivers and years of racing triumphs, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi spurs on visitors to find their drive and come out winners.
Featuring high-adrenaline rides, family-friendly attractions, state-of-the-art simulators, live shows, an inspiring treasure of racing memorabilia and a unique taste of Ferrari’s homeland through authentic dining experiences, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is the place to live the true Ferrari story. The Yas Island location is ideally placed to tap into tourists arriving at the UAE’s two gateway cities – being merely a 30-minute drive from Abu Dhabi and a 50-minute drive from Dubai.
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is a main feature of Yas Island, a 2,500 hectare island dedicated to leisure, entertainment and lifestyle in the UAE. The park is owned by Abu Dhabi government and developed by ALDAR Properties and is managed and operated by Farah Leisure Parks Management.
To house this state of the art leisure attraction, world renowned architectural firm Benoy created a building to reflect the sinuous form of a Ferrari, directly inspired by the classic double curve side profile of the Ferrari GT body. The iconic Ferrari logo on the roof measures an incredible 65 meters in length and covers an area of 3,000 sqm; the biggest Ferrari logo ever created.
Due to the shape of the island and the position of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi in close proximity to the airport, the building was conceived as a very simple 'ground hugging' form, peeling up from the landscape in flowing lines like a red sand dune. The visually distinctive form and shape crowns the Yas Marina Circuit and due to its location, the sleek shape and beauty of the building can be experienced by anyone driving past or flying over the Island.
Highlights & Attractions
The world’s fastest roller coaster provides thrill-seekers the ultimate adrenaline rush with a turbo-charged Ferrari experience. Passengers can take their seats in a Ferrari F1 carriage that rockets along the tracks reaching 0-100 km/h in less than two seconds and accelerating to 240 km/h. Formula Rossa simulates the heart-pounding rush of what it’s like to drive a Ferrari F1 racer and see Yas Island vistas at high speeds and from more than 50 metres off the ground.
Galleria Ferrari is a high-tech interactive zone tracing the inspiring history of Ferrari’s momentous development from 1947 to the present. The world’s largest Ferrari gallery outside Maranello is a stunning showcase for a collection of signature classic and contemporary Ferraris. An expansive multi-media touch screen time-line brings aficionados into the world of the visionaries, drivers, automotive engineers and artists that have made Ferrari the most iconic brand name in the automotive industry. The gallery also features artifacts, films and documents relating to Ferrari history which have never been seen outside the precincts of Maranello.
An enormous crystal funnel at the very heart of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi houses G-Force, where passengers are strapped into Ferrari-styled seats and blasted through the roof to a height of 62m with the same g-forces an F1™ driver feels at high speed on the track. It is an extreme adrenaline rush that propels passengers out of the park, suspending them at the heights for an eagle-eye panoramic view of Yas Island before plunging them to earth and back to the heavens again and again, in random, irregular patterns that makes heads swim and hearts leap.
RED: A Theatrical Spectacular of Speed & Passion
An exciting new theatrical experience at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. The show pays tribute to the passion of Enzo Ferrari and his love for speed, racing, style and everything Italian. Audiences will follow the passionate story of Italian boys and their efforts to win the affections of the beautiful Bella in a breathtaking performance where amazing acrobatics meet multimedia magic.
Driving with Champion
This is an interactive movie that follows the adventures of a young engineer who is taken on the ride of a lifetime with a racing champion on his first day working at the Ferrari factory. Driving with Champion recreates the sensation of being in the passenger seat of one of the planet’s most powerful cars driven by a racing legend as he skids through tight corners and spins through wet surfaces. This is what it’s like to drive a single-seater on the Fiorano track.
Guests can enjoy a unique shopping experience at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi with all the eye-catching Ferrari products and stunning memorabilia displayed at several retail points inside the park. Visitors can create their own personalized mementos at the innovative interactive zones. Highlights include the largest Ferrari Store in the world and the Ferrari Past and Present boutique where guests enjoy a recreation of Enzo Ferrari’s first garage, highlighting the past and present of Ferrari.
Five concept restaurants and cafés that offer visitors a true Italian dining experience, with culinary creations that combine classic Italian street foods with contemporary flair. Each of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s restaurants are linked to Ferrari’s history, including Mamma Rossella, an extension to the famous family restaurant in Maranello where Ferrari drivers and management members dine out and Ristorante Cavallino, the first restaurant to open next to the Ferrari factory back in the 1940’s, where Enzo Ferrari was a frequent diner.
