Top 10 rides in Ferrari World
Here are top 10 rides at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi for a Ferrari fueled fun. Take a look for your next holiday in Abu Dhabi!
1. Formula Rossa
If you love speed, Formula Rossa is your thing! World’s fastest roller coaster ride does not need sudden drops from extreme heights, or those stomach-churning swirls to scare you to the point that you start screaming. But don’t take this one for an easy ride. This ride is about lightning speed. You move at a speed of 149mph attained in just 5 seconds. The hydraulic launch system similar to the ones used in aircraft carriers ensures is the reason behind this unimaginable speed. The 2km long track has some tricky corners that make the ride even more exciting.
2. Fiorano GT Challenge
Fiorano GT Challenge is a ride that will challenge your reflexes several times. The ride is about the two F430 spider-shaped cars moving along parallel tracks. The thrill rises when, at several points during the ride, these twin roller-coasters cross paths making the riders feel that they are about to collide with each other. The ride would feel like experiencing a chase scene from the Fast and Furious series.
3. Scuderia Challenge
Are you a fan of virtual race-games? If yes, this part makes you feel exhilarated. Scuderia Challenge at Ferrari World is a state-of-the-art racing simulator game. Indulge in a six-man velocity race around a virtual Yas Marina Circuit. The 180-degree screens in front of you and a steering wheel in your hand that enables you to control your virtual drive complete the feel of a real race. The small car-like-pods, in which each player is seated, also feature hydraulic supports that react to everything that happens on the screen. This is like watching a 7D movie in a theatre. Pull the break and you’ll feel the inertia, hit against something and be ready to feel the bump, press the accelerator and you’ll feel the speed, take the swift turns and find yourself swinging from one side to the other. Interesting, isn’t it!

4. Speed of Magic
Just when you feel proud of figuring the fact that all the rides in Ferrari World are about speed and just speed, Speed of Magic comes as a surprise. Initially, the ride looks like any other roller coaster and in fact a “level-children” one. But in seconds it turns out to be different from what you thought. You virtually follow an animated character, flying in high speed through different exotic locations. The effects of highs and lows of the flight are impressive and exciting.
Ever tried bungee jumping? No, this is not the same, except for the part that you are suddenly dropped from an unbelievable height. G-Force ride is not for the weak-hearts as this spaceshot ride will take you 62 meters high from the ground and drop you straight down. Falling at a speed of 12 meters per second, you’ll even make the last wish of your life, all in vain! One of the most evil yet a safe landing ride will make you scream in zest, like a kid.

6. Bell’ Italia
Bell’Italia is a ride for the kids that takes them through the Italian architectural wonders. The ride goes around Italy’s iconic landmark miniatures, coastline and famous race tracks, including the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. This drive around mini-Italy is on a small Ferrari 250 California, circa 1958. This visual tour is a treat to the eyes as you tour through the beauty of the “cheese-nation” all at one place.
If you are a “how-do-they-do-it” kind of curious, then V12 is a ride that will keep you engaged. The boat-based ride is actually “journey into the heart of 12-cylinder Ferrari 599 engine”. The tour feels like living a scene from ‘Honey, I Shrunk The Kids’ where you have been turned into a size small enough to enter a Ferrari engine. The ride also involves small drops as a bonus.
8. Flying Aces
It’s not just love that can turn your world upside down, Flying Aces can also do that for you. This ride is inspired by the legendary ‘aces of aces’ aviator, Count Baracca. The 63 metre long ride has an incredible 51-degree incline. Imagine what an adrenaline rush you would experience as you move at a speed of 120km/h on the world’s highest roller coaster loop.
9. Tyre Twist
Tyre Twist is a cup and saucer ride with a Ferrari twist. The seating is in the F1 inspired giant tyres that spin, collide, rotate and slide into the fellow riders. The fun is when you try to predict the direction of the movement so that adjust your mind and body accordingly but you fail. The sudden and unpredictable spins evoke the tickling in your tummy.
10. A real Ferrari Ride
Yes, you heard me right! This is your chance to ride a real Ferrari. If you are 21 years or above and have a license issued by UAE government then you can drive a real Ferrari with an expert. And if you do not have a license, you can still take a ride in it as a passenger. This is like a dream come true, isn’t it?
