Ferrari press release :
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, set to open in 2010, is the world’s first Ferrari theme park
and largest attraction of its kind. It will be an intense multi-sensory
experience and a must-visit for enthusiasts, fans and families. The
Park pays tribute to the passion, excellence, performance and technical
innovation that Ferrari has established over the years and represents
today. Its iconic sleek red roof is directly inspired by the classic
double curve side profile of the Ferrari GT body, spanning 200,000 m2 and carrying the largest Ferrari logo ever created.
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will host a number of attractions,
including rides for children of all ages, providing the complete
Ferrari experience: over 20 state-of-the-art attractions, each designed
to bring to life a different part of the Ferrari story, including the
world’s fastest rollercoaster, travelling at speeds exceeding  200
 km/h  and emulating the  thrilling sensation of being in a Ferrari F1
car, or the G-force experience taking passengers on an
adrenaline-pumping ride up over 62 m, through the roof and back down
again.
The Park is located on Yas Island – set to become a
global tourist destination with a wide range of accommodation and
entertainment facilities – on the North East side of Abu Dhabi’s
mainland. Abu Dhabi, at the crossroads between Europe, Asia and Africa,
was chosen as the ideal location to build the Ferrari theme park, motor
sports being extremely popular in the United Arab Emirates. Ferrari
World Abu Dhabi will offer a unique and intensely fun way, together
with a wide variety of Italian delicaciesand of course unique shopping
experiences.
The Park is owned by Aldar Properties PJSC, Abu Dhabi’s leading property development, management and investment company. Farah Leisure Parks Management L.L.C,
a joint venture between Aldar Properties PJSC and ProFun Management
Group Inc. (international leisure facilities management and operating
company) will be responsible for managing and operating Ferrari World
Abu Dhabi. Ferrari’s key principles of excellence and performance in
the context of technological innovation will underpin every aspect of
the project.
