Ferrari World Abu Dhabi was created in tribute to Ferrari’s passion, heritage, excellence, innovation and performance. Each area and attraction in the Park brings to life a different part of the Ferrari story, from Cinema Maranello with its film about Enzo Ferrari to Formula Rossa capturing the speed, power and freedom of a F1™ car. Farah Experiences was determined and passionate to not only showcase the best of the Ferrari brand, but to provide people of all ages with the most thrilling theme park experience in the Middle East.
Construction of the Park began on 3 November 2007. It took three years to complete and required 12,370 tons of steel to create its structure, nearly double of that needed in the Eiffel tower. The Park has the largest space frame structure ever built, and it took 14 months just to clad the 200,000m2 roof.
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi welcomed its first guests in November 2010. 2,000 VIP guests, including senior government officials and F1™ drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, attended the opening event in December 2010. Guests were treated to a spectacular show, followed by an opening ceremony by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince, and the Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
Enjoy a leisurely change of speed and explore miniature Italy in a small-scale Ferrari 250 California, circa 1958. From breath-taking cityscapes to famous landmarks and racing venues, tour the picturesque Portofino and the Amalfi Coast, Monza Racetrack, the Colosseum di Roma, Venezia, and of course, Maranello.
