In 1947, after years of honing Alfa Romeos into the perfect gentleman’s racing machine, Enzo Ferrari created the first car to host the prancing horse badge as the Ferrari 125 S rolled off its production line in the small Italian town of Maranello. Ever since, the Ferrari stable has been churning out some of the most remarkable machines in the world of automobiles and motorsport. Today, you can purchase Ferrari World tickets and experience this symbol of Italian flair, advanced engineering, exclusivity and luxury at Ferrari’s first and only foray yet into the world of theme parks, Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi.
From rides that go faster than the average speeds of an F1 car round a track to tasting authentic Italian food, there is something for everyone here. You can race your friends in racing simulators with the most advanced feedback systems or go for a roller coaster ride with the tallest non-inverting loop. You can go for a historic, albeit virtual, tour of the historic Ferrari factory in Maranello or even learn how to fly. With so much of world class entertainment to experience, Ferrari World is a must for everyone visiting the United Arab Emirates.
Opened in 2010, Ferrari World is arguably one of best tourist attractions in the Middle East. Testament to this are the numerous awards that Ferrari World has been bestowed with ever since its inauguration.

Ferrari World Review
- THE GOOD
- THE BAD
Ferrari has made the exclusivity and modern technology that it has to offer more accessible to the world with Ferrari World. Not only does Ferrari World allow you to have a thrilling day out, full of adventure rides and interactive experiences, but also get into the history of Ferrari, experience what it must feel to drive a Ferrari and get up close and personal with some of the most iconic cars in the history of automobiles and motorsport.
Ferrari World has two record breaking roller coasters within its grounds that are a must try. Formula Rossa, the fastest roller coaster in the world and Flying Aces, the roller coaster with the tallest non-inverting loop in the world. These two rides should be on the top of the list of every roller coaster enthusiast. However, if you're traveling with children and would like to take it easy with the rides for them, do not worry as there are ample experiences that cater specially to the young ones.
Located across the street on Yas Island is Yas Waterworld, one of the most popular waterparks in the region. This makes Yas Island quite a leisure ground and presents a wonderful opportunity to visit both parks - especially when you book a combo pass, which will allow to save a lot of money as opposed to visiting the parks separately.
For those staying or living in Dubai, you’ll have to account for transportation time since the park is actually in Abu Dhabi. But with that being said, it is only about a 50 minute drive to Ferrari World from Dubai.
A place like nothing I've ever seen before. Definitely worth visiting this theme park. They have the fastest and highest rollercoasters in the world! Quite pricey, but you could easily spend the day here. Get there early before the crowds arrive later in the day. Most rides open at 11/12 in the morning, it gets busy at about lunch time until later in the evening.
We visited Water World and Ferrari World in April 2017 as a group of people. We had a fantastic day out and can't remember when last the adrenaline was pumping like that day! They have the most exhilarating rides and I personally enjoyed the Formula Rossa which is the fastest roller coaster in the world. Everything was well organized and always felt that safety came first. Highly recommended!
