Appropriate clothing & shoes
Most of the rides are indoor, make sure you wear clothing suitable for the rides. You will be walking a lot, so get your best pair of Sneakers. Please wear appropriate apparel whilst in the park out of consideration for other visitors and in compliance with local laws and customs. Please wear shorts that reach your knees and cover your shoulders.
Food & Dining Options
If you are not too concerned about the food, pack a sandwich/burger or lunch if you can. Plenty of food options though, but we wanted to cover as much as possible.
Rides under Maintenance
Some of the rides were under maintenance and renovation, so it is wise to check their social media page/website for park updates. So you can plan accordingly.
Shopping & Souveneirs
Everyone has the possibility to take a piece of Ferrari history home thanks to the presence of the largest Ferrari retail space in the world and an incredible assortment of branded goods and memorabilia, which ranges from entertaining miniature cars to a variety of stylish Italian clothing and accessories.
The rides which we loved the most & quick tips
This one is our absolute favourite. Riders are required to put on special goggles before entering to protect their eyes from the piercing air and sand. According to what I understand, the roller coaster starts with a hydraulic launch that travels at the same speed as a plane as it lifts off the ground and flies into the sky. Your entire body experiences an adrenaline surge as a result of the rapid acceleration from 0 to 240 km/h in less than 5 seconds. The rush is truly unforgettable, especially when the wind blows in your face and body like you're flying through the air without any safety handles to wrap around you.
Flying Aces rollercoaster
While riding the stomach-churning Flying Aces rollercoaster, which has the tallest inverted loop in the world at 63 metres above the ground, you can shatter yet another record. When the ride reaches the top, it plunges into a hole and reaches its top speed of 120 km/h. The coaster is fashioned after a well-known bi-pilot aircraft and is based on the great Italian World War I aviator, Count Baracca.
Fiorano GT Challenge
Every time the two parallel tracks of the Fiorano GT challenge cross paths, giving you the impression that the two roller coasters are about to collide, your heart is enriched with an unparalleled rush. You might close your eyes in panic for a split second and then open them in relief.
Photos with your Ferrari cars
We took so many photos with all the Ferrari cars parked in the Gallery. If you are into cars, then this is a must see place for you.
Kids rides in Ferrari World
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi boasts a tonne of attractions that guarantee the kids will have a blast as well. The most famous rides in the park have miniature counterparts in the Family Zone. Children may experience the thrill of riding their own miniature replica of the fastest rollercoaster in the world. The Formula Rossa Junior race car travels at a top speed of 45 km/h and uses the same track as the famous Formula Rossa. Junior Grand Prix, Speedway Race, Flying Wings, Tyre Twist, and many more are additional family-friendly attractions.
