Ferrari World Abu Dhabi to Open in 2010

Set to be the world’s largest indoor theme park, housed under a roof designed after a classic double-curve body shell of the Italian supercar, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s external structure has just been completed, with the grand opening set for 2010.

"With the inaugural Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix just days away, this milestone is a fantastic demonstration of the blossoming relationship between Abu Dhabi and Ferrari. Abu Dhabi's involvement with Ferrari is emblematic of our collective commitment to quality and tradition linked with innovation and vision," Piero Ferrari, Vice Chairman of Ferrari Spa, was quoted as saying by Al Bawaba.

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will be operated by Farah Leisure Park Management LLC (Farah), a joint venture between Aldar and ProFun Management Group.

"We are delighted to have reached this landmark in the development of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. Signature projects like this are another element of our commitment and contribution to Plan Abu Dhabi 2030, by delivering attractions that further enhance the Emirate's credentials as an exciting place to live and visit," commented Mohammed Al Mubarak, Chief Commercial Officer, Aldar Properties and Chairman of Farah Leisure Park Management.

"We are proud to be a part of bringing Ferrari to Abu Dhabi and giving our citizens and visitors alike the opportunity to share in the passion and excitement of these initiatives," he added.

 Located on Yas Island, Aldar's brand new Retail, Leisure & Entertainment destination and host venue for the inaugural Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the first ever Ferrari theme park in the world will have over 20 rides and attractions, including the world’s fastest rollercoaster.

The red roof inspired from a Ferrari GT body covers a surface area of 200,000m2 and features the largest Scuderia Ferrari "prancing horse" emblem in the world, measuring 66m in diameter.
