I can only find one source on-line as the parks website doesn't seem to list it yet but does Turbo Track really have a height restriction of 1.3 meters, the same as Flying aces?

 

I thought Ferrari World could do with a good thrilling family ride and thought this was it but at 1.3 meters it doesnt really fall into that category and seems a shame. The place doesn't have much thrilling to do for kids until they hit 1.3 meters.

 

I guess this place will cater more to thrill seekers where as Warner Bros will be more the family park.

1.3m is a tall height restriction?

Doesn't seem to be any news as of yet. I am keeping my eyes and ears to the ground

If your eyes and ears are to the ground, you won't see or hear anything. And how can you do both at the same time. My eyes and ears are on different places on my head. When my eyes are to the ground, all I see is ground. If I put one ear to the ground then I can see one way or the other depending on which ear is to the ground, and my other ear is straight up facing the sky.

This video from Bloomberg TV has an interesting sequence showing the side-drop element of the SFX.

I was wondering how the special track piece would get back to position after the drop, and I'd guessed that there would be some kind of winch... Nada, it's actually launched back in place.

Jump at 1:36 in the video.

Dynamic Attractions teased their SFX coaster concept at this years IAAPA showing off an insane mix of media, coaster sections and surprise elements. They also announced the worlds first installation will be heading to Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi in 2015.

 

Little is known about the ride specifics but I found out the ride has begun shipping to Abu Dhabi from a manufacturing facility in China (the same company that build Dinoconda and the Intamin U Shaped Coaster) and the track looks like nothing you’ve seen before. Looking like a triangular version of B&M box track it is massive.

 

The layout can also be seen below and although it’s not 100% clear what each element is there are clearly at least 2 inversions and 2 trick track sections to look forwards to. Each of the 6 trains will hold 9 passengers. The ride will use linear synchronous motors for a maximum speed of 45 mph. There will be five separate launch sections while the indoor section will contain two large-screen 3D movie sections.

That does look interesting. I know they have been doing a lot of testing in the building at Ferrari World. The track has one of those reach envelope cars on the track at the moment.

Hello, im planning on visiting the park during the Christmas season. While the coasters are a must, the other rides look kinda tame tbh, any tips on which to avoid and what are the good ones?

 

We are also planning on visiting Aquaventure waterpark, any other tips are most welcome

The park is small enough that you should be able to hit everything without any issues. I mean, all the dark rides are decent to varying degrees. There's not a huge amount of attractions at the park so why would you want to even consider skipping something?
