The fastest thrill ride in the world is going to be a highlight of your trip. Get in, put your straps on and have goggles at the ready (yes it’s that fast). You will be catapulted into the air in the cockpit of a F1™, accelerating to 240km/h in just five seconds. This is certainly an experience to remember. You can also play a realistic racecar arcade game or do a little drag racing on the Fiorano GT Challenge coaster.

If driving a Ferrari is a far-fetched fantasy for you, bring yourself back to the world of non-fiction and buckle up. It only makes sense that at Ferrari World you can make those dreams come true and be the driver. Steer the ‘most stylish car of the year’ around the track with a Ferrari co-pilot or take the whole family along for a ride.
Especially for the kids

Amidst the roller coasters and stylish displays are plenty of activities and attractions to keep the kids smiling. Head to Khalil’s Car Wash playground to let them run free or take them to the Junior GT Driving School. Here they can learn how to drive mini cars, navigating traffic lights and roundabouts. Kids who love a little speed will be delighted at the Junior Grand Prix racing track and those that want to get active can head to the climbing area. You can be sure they will be worn out by the end of the day, as there is so much for them to see and do.
Personalize your visit with a show or event

There are a number of awesome shows you can attend when in this world of red. Laugh along with the Tyre Change comedy show, see Viva Ferrari or attend an event. Families can enjoy the Speed of Magic 4D movie and check out a factory tour. Certainly the most iconic event to attend would be an actual F1™ race, and this year, Yas Island makes that possible. The last weekend in November is the 2017 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and it promises to be exciting. Check out Ferrari World and learn about the sport before taking your seat at the track and watching the pros do it.
So, if it is speed, smiles and shiny cars you are after on your vacation, Yas Island has it all. Ferrari World is the ultimate entertainment venue for the whole family. The island also has excellent accommodation as stylish as your favorite brand of car. Grab a room at Park Inn by Radisson, Abu Dhabi Yas Island and have a first class experience.
