Ferrari World Abu Dhabi19 Dec 2010 3 Comments
The design of the building/structure is simply amazing, for me it might be the best looking external and internal building in the world. Also, the whole park is a covered building that is air conditioned which is a great idea due to the weather that we have here in the gulf.
The main reason we went there is to try out the world fastest roller-coaster the Formula Rossa. It uses a catapult mechanism similar to the ones that are used on aircraft carriers to make planes reach their takeoff speeds in short distances. The ride reaches a top speed of 240 kph from a stationary position in 4.9 seconds. Glasses are required for the first line of the first cart only.
There isn’t much to do in the park apart from the roller coasters and the simulation (which I highly recommend booking an appointment as soon as you enter the park). There are some decent restaurants and a handful of kids activities/rides.
