Ferrari has released preview images and information on the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi theme park which is set to open in 2010. Among the features is the 200,000 square meters red roof inspired by the double curve side profile of the Ferrari GT body with the largest “prancing horse” emblem in the world.

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, performance, 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 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 .

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.
