Ferrari World Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Man...the airtime just doesn't look nearly as intense anymore with the trims.
Oh you BETTER not go yackin' about 305 here . I did notice one thing, unlike previous Accelerator coasters, this one once it stops at launch position and backs down for the cart it doesn't even pause it just launches. The older ones stop for "staging".

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi Off to a Flying Start

World’s first Ferrari Theme Park welcomes thousands of guests

 

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: The world’s first Ferrari theme park, and largest attraction of its kind, got off to a roaring start today with thousands of families and fans flocking to experience the passion, exhilaration and technical innovation so worthy of the Ferrari name. After three years of construction and preparation, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi had its soft opening welcoming the general public at midday.

 

The much anticipated theme park, and the first attraction of its kind in the Middle East, has already captured the imagination of thousands around the globe with a range of unique and thrilling attractions including Formula Rossa, the world’s fastest roller coaster, and Speed of Magic, the region’s first four dimensional fantasy ride. Today, families in the UAE and theme park enthusiasts from around the world ventured to Abu Dhabi to be among the first to experience this attraction.

 

“Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is a completely unique concept, we just had to be here,” said Ahmed Sallam, one of the first visitors to the park. “There is so much to see and do. We love the variety for the whole family. It is a great experience for all of us.”

 

Today’s soft opening marks the start of an inaugural period which will continue throughout the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and culminate with the Grand Opening ceremony on 30th November 2010.

 

Andy Keeling, Park Manager, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi said: “We are so excited to finally share the thrill and excitement of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi with our guests. From more than twenty years in the theme park industry, I personally feel that there is nothing more rewarding than watching people’s reactions as they experience the rides for the first time and today was a truly momentous day for all of our guests.”

 

“Ferrari World Abu Dhabi offers a truly amazing experience for every member of the family and I look forward to welcoming our visitors in the weeks and months to come,” he added.

^ Hey dd, hows the transport options to get to the park from Dubai?

 

A work-colleague is in Dubai for a couple of days next week and I have generated some enthusiasm for him to go out to the park; but we both have no idea how he can get there from Dubai (hiring a car excepting). Any hints gratefully received!

^I'm pretty sure a cab would drive you all the way there, the distance doesn't look too long. I've been to Dubai and the cab service isn't bad.

Cabs will do it, but I estimated the cost to be $70-80 one way.

 

Emirates Airlines has shuttle service between Dubai and Abu Dhabi airports that are free if you fly them. But, you'd still need cab far on each end.

 

I would not recommend renting a car. Arabs drive like total idiots.
