Abu Dhabi is now host to the Ferrari World theme park -- a world-class entertainment and leisure facility that is now drawing hordes after hordes of tourists and locals alike who are keen on experiencing the park’s amazing attractions and exhibits. According to Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo, the park was four years in development.
Two years were spent conceptualizing what is now one of the premier attractions in the Middle East. Even Montezemolo described the idea as initially “ambitious,” but they pulled it off. Construction for the park commenced and went without any stops in the two years before its soft launch to the international media.
When you step into Ferrari World, you’ll find exhibits and attractions that exhibit Ferrari’s heritage and its commitment to continuing development of racing technology. Visitors can see Ferrari’s GT road cars and racing cars, as well as take a glimpse of the culture in Italy that is deeply embedded in the company.
With the Ferrari World theme park, visitors can understand more of the heritage, the history and the passion that go behind the company’s every endeavor in developing monster racers and road-legal supercars. Everyone will love the theme park, not just car enthusiasts, as the theme park has attractions that are designed for a wide range of audiences across all ages.
Montezemolo, who spoke during the international press preview of the theme park, described the theme park as their way of trying to bridge the cultural gap between Italy and the United Arab Emirates.
Montezemolo also thanked Sheikh bin Zayed Al Nahyan, King of Abu Dhabi and Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for giving their support to Ferrari World from the development to the actual implementation of the theme park’s concept.
The Ferrari executive also expressed condolences on behalf of the car maker on the death of Sheik Saqr bin Mohammed Al-Qasimi, Emir of Ras al-Khaimah. As a sign of sympathizing with the UAE’s mourning of their great leader, Ferrari postponed the soft opening of the theme park to the general public.
