Ferrari World to open on 27 October

Updated: 


Ever since Ferrari World was first announced, we have been quite childishly excited about the prospect of a theme park dedicated to the Italian supercar manufacturer.

But the waiting is almost over – those 150mph rollercoasters and F1 simulators will fire up for the public for the first time on 27 October.
According to officials, this is a day earlier than expected, while the prices for entry have also now been announced. It appears that the October launch is just a half scale one for now though, with only the outdoor attractions on offer until a full-blown opening in December.

"We are excited to open our doors to the public earlier than previously anticipated, on Wednesday 27th October 2010 and we look forward to welcoming many guests to mark this historic day," said Claus Frimand, general manager, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

It will cost from 225 to 375 United Arab Emirate Dirhams (about £39 to 65) for adults to get in and enjoy unlimited access to the rides, while children will pay between 165 to 270 AED (£28 to £46).

Ferrari World will be the planet's largest indoor theme park, and will hold 20 rides, simulators and attractions. It is located near to the site of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which is due to take place on 14 November.
