Ferrari to Build New Theme Park in Valencia?

We're sure that most of you were blown away by the impressive Ferrari World theme park that debuted (but not for the public) in Abu Dhabi in the late stages of the 2009 season. The aforementioned construction on Yas Island was developed by an United Arab Emirates company and was one of the main attractions for the worldwide Formula One fans that came to Abu Dhabi to see the last race of the 2009 season.

That being said, one cannot argue against the obvious success of the Ferrari theme park. Its immense logo on the top side of the red construction could be seen all the way from the F1 track, making Ferrari a winner regardless of their results on track.

According to Spanish El Mundo newspaper, it seems the Italian company is now considering the building of a second Ferrari World theme park, this time in Europe, and the location most likely to gain the confidence of the Maranello officials is Valencia. Being already established as Europe's second street circuit in F1, Valencia is seen as a great marketing location for the Italian company, especially since it now has a 2-time Spanish champion in their driving lineup in F1.

At the moment, we are focused on the project of Abu Dhabi, but yes, if the idea works there then it can work elsewhere as well,” a Ferrari source was quoted as saying to the Spanish media.

Apart from El Mundo, Marca sports newspaper also hinted that Valencia may become the base of Ferrari's new theme park, as it revealed that “Francisco Camps, president of the Generalitat Valenciana administration, reportedly visited Yas Island and has an excellent relationship with Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo,” according to the GMM news agency.
