The theme park dedicated to Ferrari is located in Abu Dhabi on the artificial Yas Island. It is the largest indoor amusement park, as well as the world's fastest Formula Rossa pneumatic slide - in 4.9 seconds you accelerate to a speed of 240 km per hour.
There are more than 20 attractions in the park, including a racing school for novice drivers, a catapult roller coaster, Formula 1 racing simulators with Ferrari seats and steering wheels, a ride inside a Ferrari engine, as well as a large number of interactive entertainment for adults and children. Notice, that the simulators you find here are used by Formula 1 drivers. Worth visiting, isn't it?
Another interesting attraction is the Ferrari Gallery, where you will see cars produced by the Ferrari concern since 1947.
You can also visit the Ferrari World boutique and buy souvenirs, for example a keychain to a Ferrari engine weighing several kilograms. But most probably you will buy special sports uniforms or other Ferrari brand items.
The park is open every day from 11.00 to 20.00
The cost of visiting is $84 for adults and children over 3 years old. Children under 3 years old visit the park for free.
