The Ferrari World theme park has opened its doors to the public today, so the Prancing Horse has released a series of photos and a new video in which the main attractions get described.
The Ferrari World theme park represents an idea that was born 4 years ago, and today, as the project is completed, visitors in Abu Dhabi will get a chance to experience numerous thrills that vary in intensity. And these include the extreme Formula Rossa roller-coaster which hits 60 mph in 2.0-seconds and can reach 150 mph, or the lower heart pumping ride through the inner workings of a V12 engine.
The Italian company also thinks that the Ferrari theme park is a step forward in bridging two different cultures, and if you want to check out photos from the opening day, follow the gallery below the jump.
Ferrari press release :
Yas Marina, 27 October – Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the first ever theme
park dedicated to the Prancing Horse, was presented this afternoon as a
preview exclusively to the international press. Today’s planned soft
opening to the public was put back to a future date to be decided in
sign of mourning for the passing away of Sheik Saqr bin Mohammed
Al-Qasimi, Emir of Ras al-Khaimah.
"First of all I would like,
on behalf of both myself and everyone at Ferrari, to express our sincere
condolences to the government and the population of the United Arab
Emirates for their tragic loss," – said the Chairman of Ferrari, Luca di
Montezemolo. "Then I would like to thank the nation and all those who
made it possible to make this dream – a unique theme park dedicated to
the world of Ferrari – a reality. Congratulations to everyone involved."
"The park just 4 years ago was a project, an idea, maybe even a
too ambitious idea, is now a fantastic reality. Everyone at Ferrari is
grateful to the people who have worked without rest for the last two
years to make it happen.
Abu Dhabi is a great city that
constantly looks to the future, and we are very proud of our partners
who share with Ferrari the same passion, the same vision, the same will
to go beyond.
This park combines innovative technology and
tradition, it is dedicated not only to Ferrari fans and car
enthusiastic, but to the whole family; there are attractions for kids,
men and women. It has also the real touch of Ferrari: how things really
are for us, with our exclusive GT road cars and racing cars, but also
our history and our cultural background. Something else that was crucial
for us was for the Park to be a symbol, built actively on the heritage
that Italy represents for the world. We are pleased to see that all this
has become reality, and that the excitement – like the roller coaster
that makes you feel like a Formula One driver – goes hand-in-hand with
messages that perfectly combine having a good time with the reality
represented by the passion for Ferrari.
We also like to think
that this Ferrari Theme park can be a small contribution to reinforcing
the bridge between our two cultures.
And finally I would like to
express my personal thanks to His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al
Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, and to His Highness
Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi; for
their guidance and support. Warm thanks are also due to Khaldoon Al
Mubarak, and to Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, for their invaluable support."
