Aldar Properties today announced the completion of the external structure of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. Located on Yas Island, Aldar’s brand new Retail, Leisure and Entertainment destination and host venue for the inaugural Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is set to be the world’s largest indoor theme park and the first ever Ferrari theme park in the world when it opens in 2010.
The iconic sleek red roof directly inspired by the classic double curve side profile of the Ferrari GT body covers a surface area of 200,000m² and features the largest Scuderia Ferrari “prancing horse” emblem in the world, measuring 66m in diameter. 35,000 tonnes m³ of concrete, 12,370 tonnes of steel, 29,000m² of facade glazing and 165,000m² of roof cladding were used to create the park’s superstructure which was completed in 14 months.
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will be an intense multi-sensory experience and a must-visit venue for enthusiasts, fans and families. It pays tribute to the passion, excellence, performance and technical innovation that Ferrari has established over the years and represents today. The Park will host over 20 state-of-the-art attractions, each designed to bring to life a different part of the Ferrari story. This includes the world’s fastest rollercoaster, travelling at speeds exceeding 200 km/h emulating the thrilling sensation of being in a Ferrari F1 car, the G-force experience that takes passengers on an adrenaline-pumping ride up over 62 m through the roof and back down again, as well as an aerial voyage over Italy, following a Ferrari. The unique experiences offered at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will be complemented by a wide variety of Italian delicacies and unique shopping experiences.
