This week, from today to sunday, it’s celebrated FITUR (International Tourism Trade Fair) in Madrid.

It is expected to expose details about kids area at Ferrari Land.

But yesterday, a spanish newspaper published the names and concept of the new 5 kiddie rides:

  • Champions Race: simulate the driving of a Ferrari
  • Crazy Pistons: 2 attractions inspired by the movement of the pistons
  • Junior Red Force: children’s adaptation of Red Force coaster
  • Kid’s Tower: rebound tower and free fall (9 meters)



Also, at the main park PortAventura Park will have a new attracion (The House of Woody Woodpecker) and a new character for SesamoAventura area, Big Bird.

Glad to see more rides added to Ferrari Land, even if it isn't necessarily for adults. Everything there was nice on my visit, but there simply wasn't enough for a full day.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Boulder Dash, Phoenix, Wildfire, Outlaw Run
Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Expedition GeForce, Twisted Colossus, Iron Rattler, Fury 325

The main reason to visit Ferrari Land will always be Red Force, that is also why I visited this park last year. But it is great to see them adding new rides to Ferrari Land, even when it are all kids rides. Every addition is good for this park, because as Canobie Coaster said, it definitely is not a full day park.

From the sounds of it this was much needed. Nice move by the park.

Portugal needs more old-school B&M's!!!

^True. I was surprised, when I went there, by the lack of people it had and indeed it didn't feel very complete. I basically just went there for red force. Hopefully this will help.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Looks good. I remember hearing reports that Ferrari Land desperately needed some “rounding out,” so this is a great move by the park.

Does the Crazy Pistons ride invert? It looks like it possibly could do...
