Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi Nearing Completion - Opens in 2010

You're old, your kids have already been to Disneyland, and you need a vacation. Where do you go? Ferrari World Abu Dhabi of course!

The "world's first Ferrari theme park and largest attraction of its kind" has announced plans to open in 2010. Featuring more than 20 attractions, the amusement park is 48 meters high, has 100,000 square meters (1,076,391 sq ft) of enclosed space and features the largest Ferrari logo ever created (65m x 48.5m).

Operated by Farah Leisure Parks Management L.L.C, Ferrari World's main attraction is the world's fastest rollercoaster, which travels at speeds in excess of 200 km/h (124.2 mph). Other rides include the 'G-force experience' (which takes "passengers on an adrenaline-pumping ride up over 62 m, through the roof and back down again"), the 'Flume ride' (which explores "the heart of a Ferrari 599 engine"), and an "aerial voyage over Italy following a Ferrari." If that isn't your kind of thing, Ferrari World also offers a junior racing school with expert drivers. After an action-packed day, visitors can relax at an Italian restaurant or browse one of several souvenir shops.

Located on Yas Island, Ferrari World is only a 10-minute drive from Abu Dhabi International Airport and just 30 minutes from the city of Abu Dhabi.
