Ferrari World’s GT Racing Coaster car is...a Ferrari F430 Spider

Move over, Disneyland. There’s a new theme park on the other side of the world that is fast becoming a must-visit for everyone from all walks of life. And the funny thing is it’s not even open yet.

The Ferrari World theme park in Abu Dhabi, which is actually the largest indoor theme park in the world, is set to open later this year. Among the many – and we can’t stress that word enough – attractions the Ferrari World will feature includes over 20 rides and attractions designed for the young and the young-at-heart.

Continued after the jump.

The two rides that are expected to get the most attention are the two incredible roller coasters that Ferrari World will have. The first one is the “F1 Roller Coaster”, which, as the name suggests, is expected to be the fastest roller coaster in the world because it travels in Formula One speed, giving riders the opportunity to experience what being inside a Ferrari F1 car feels like, including the 200kmh speeds and all the G-force your body can take.

The second rollercoaster is the GT Racing Coaster, where the roller coaster car is actually a replica of the Ferrari F430 Spider. The GT Racing Coaster will have two of these cars competing along a series of twists and turns on two parallel race tracks in a race simulated ride to determine which car crosses the finish line first.

Writing about the Ferrari World already has us salivating about the thought of going to Abu Dhabi just to say that we’ve been there, we’ve ridden the rides, and we got a first-hand experience of what Ferrari World is all about.
