There is nothing more thrilling than a joy ride in an amusement park, enjoying the excitement of the experience of traveling at high speed through twists and turns. And when it comes to high speed, no one is better qualified than Ferrari. Yas Island in Abu Dhabi will be unveiling the new Ferrari World, a Formula 1 theme park. Adrenalin rides of all shapes and sizes will have visitors in awe, especially the biggest draw card of the theme park, namely the Formula Rossa roller coaster.

The opening of Ferrari World will be a historical occasion as it will be the first Ferrari theme park in the world. Over and above this fact, the entire theme park is indoors, making it the biggest indoor theme park as well. The entire structure stands at a height of fifty meters and covers an area of four hundred and fifty thousand square meters. The area that is accessible to the public is eighty-six thousand square meters. It is located on the land next to the Yas Marina Formula 1 circuit. Its unveiling is perfectly timed, as on the 12th of November 2010 the second annual Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Race will be held.

The exciting Formula Rossa roller coaster is a ride for the brave, as everyone on board will be subjected to a G-force of 7.1! This phenomenal rollercoaster is set on a track of the utmost safety and all passengers will be supplied with protective goggles, as this high speed roller coaster will reach speeds of a hundred kilometers an hour in just under three seconds and can go from zero to two hundred and forty kilometers in just under five seconds. This means that riders, with a staggering twenty thousand eight hundred horsepower behind them, will reach the first arch in the roller coaster ride within five seconds.

The interesting Fiorano GT Challenge ride consists of two rails that run parallel to one another and are approximately a kilometer in length. This ride will give visitors the true experience of racing, with both Ferrari F430 Spiders racing along the track taking patrons on an unforgettable ride. There are twenty rides in total, as well as simulators and a host of other attractions. Staff will be easily recognizable as their uniforms resemble those of Ferrari’s pit crews. Ferrari World is a theme park that will thrill, excite and entertain, and will be a massive attraction for visitors from all over the world.
