Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the World’s Leading Theme Park, is gearing up to celebrate its 10th anniversary milestone this November. Since opening, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi has set a new benchmark in the Middle East theme parks and attractions industry.
OVER THE PAST TEN YEARS FERRARI WORLD ABU DHABI HAS TAKEN ITS GUEST EXPERIENCE TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH:
When Ferrari World Abu Dhabi opened its doors on November 4, 2010, with 20 rides and attractions, it introduced the World’s Fastest Roller Coaster, Formula Rossa, to the world.
Last year the iconic roller coaster surpassed a whopping five million riders!
In 2016, the Park launched Flying Aces, the world’s first bi-plane themed roller coaster, which also earned three Guinness World Records for World’s Steepest, World’s Fastest Inclined Cable Lift (inclined at a 51-degree angle, with an acceleration of 30 km/h) and World’s Tallest Inverted Loop at 52m. Just over a year later, the Park introduced yet another exhilarating roller coaster; Turbo Track. This spectacular attraction launches guests from inside the park at 102km/h before they experience a zero-gravity vertical plummet back down!
Since then, over the past decade, the Park has added more than 21 rides and attractions for guests of all ages to enhance the family-friendly guest experience.
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
But that’s not all – younger guests joined in the fun when Ferrari World Abu Dhabi introduced the Karting Academy in 2014 and Benno’s Great Race in 2017. Ferrari World Abu Dhabi also launched the Family Zone earlier this year, which includes four all-new attractions that are miniature replicas of the Park’s iconic attractions; Formula Rossa Junior, Speedway Race, Flying Wings and the Turbo Tower. Moreover, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi introduced push cars and a Ferrari-branded retail line designed especially for younger guests to enjoy.
FUN, FUN & MORE FUN
The Park has hosted a myriad of world-class events, including the first-ever International Ferrari Cavalcade to take place in the UAE with 90 Ferrari cars, in 2019. To bring the Ferrari brand to life even more, the Hypercars Exhibition was launched this year; this state-of-the-art display mirrors the limited-series cars currently showcased at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello.
WORLD-CLASS SEASONAL EVENTS
Throughout its ten years, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi has been known to host more than 4,000 spectacular seasonal community events, including Winterfest, Chinese New Year, The Rollercoaster Rally, Eid celebrations and the Festival of Lights and more. Some of these events have even won awards, such as Winterfest winning the ‘Seasonal Event of the Year’ by the Park World Excellence Awards.
DELECTABLE DINING EXPERIENCES
From quick pit stops to leisurely dining experiences, guests have lots of options to choose from at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. With restaurants offering both international cuisines and authentic Italian dining experiences, there’s been no shortage of options to satisfy any appetite. Adding to the Italian dining experience is Mamma Rossella’s brand-new kids’ menu, introduced this year, with delicious meals for the younger guests bursting with flavor including fresh, miniature pizzas and the spaghetti Bolognese we all know and love. Since opening in 2010, Mamma Rossella’s has served over 935,000 authentic Italian pizzas!
REASONS FOR STAR-STUDDED GUESTS TO VISIT FROM NEAR AND FAR
The iconic theme park has also been the preferred pit stop for more than 135 internationally recognized celebrities such as Scuderia Ferrari F1 driver Charles Leclerc, American rock band ‘The Killers’ and Manchester City footballer David Silva.
Bianca Sammut, general manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi & acting Head of Yas Theme Parks commented: “As we prepare for our extraordinary 10th anniversary celebrations, we’re also reflecting on our incredible achievements. When Ferrari World Abu Dhabi opened in 2010, it was the first theme park on Yas Island and the only Park of its kind in the world. For a decade, the Park has been committed to providing guests with the ultimate Ferrari-inspired adventure, as part of our dedication to continuously elevating the guest experience. We’re very excited to show our guests what we have in store for the remainder of 2020 as the World’s Leading Theme Park.”
