The highly-anticipated ceremonial opening of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi has finally come.
With a lavish opening ceremony befitting Ferrari’s standing as one of the world’s premier automakers, the Italian brand spared no expense in organizing the festivities. Attended by over two thousand guests including Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Italy’s foreign minister Franco Frattini and Ferrari Formula One drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, the ceremony included an extravagant show chronicling the automaker’s rich automotive and racing history.
Located at the heart of Yas Island, a ten-minute drive from Abu Dhabi International Airport and about an hour away from the Yas Marina Circuit, Ferrari World is shaping up to become one of Abu Dhabi’s – and the entire UAE for that matter – premier destinations, an impressive feat considering the growing number of tourist destinations in the country.
One of the theme park’s main attractions is the ‘Formula Rossa’, considered to be the world’s fastest rollercoaster capable of traveling at speeds in excess of 150 mph.
And now that Ferrari World is officially open at full capacity, you can expect the tourists from all corners of the world to come in droves to Abu Dhabi.
