We have arrived at Ferrari World! Home to the world's fastest roller coaster Formula Rossa!

Image
Here's our humble little group for this trip!

Image
I've got Starbucks, a media pass, and ready to have an awesome day!

Image
Image
Image
Starting off our day with a preview of the new Turbo Track! While we didn't get to ride as the attraction was still under construction, our cameras DID get to ride! Take a look...

First coaster of the day we got to ride (and of the trip, actually!) Some family-friendly multi-launched Ferrari racing goodness!

Sexy looking trains!



Image
Holy cow! Formula Rossa is still quite possibly the most intense launch coaster in the world! INSANE!!!

Goggles on and we are ready for the world's fastest roller coaster!

There you go at 149MPH! INSANE!

While yes, they do brake you on the initial uphill (and they do this so you won't DIE!) you take the rest of the ride at a pretty swift 90MPH or so I'd say!

Image
Here's my "Formula Rossa Face!" lol!



And check out this cool 360 video we did! (You may need to watch it on your phone using the YouTube app..)


Next up....and AWESOME new Intamin coaster!

Seriously, this ride was AMAZING fun!

Interestingly enough, not only is the coaster itself great, but it also has one of the most elaborately themed queues for any roller coaster. Take a look...

And yes, of you want to drive a real Ferrari for an exotic car experience, you can!

My favorite girl and my favorite number! :P

Heeeeeey you two! :lover:

The karting track at Ferrari World was amazing! Was super fun sliding around slick tracking all over the place!

I cannot come up with a caption that can possibly match the humor of this photo. So I won't try. Instead just enjoy a photo of a bunch of grown adults with condoms on their heads!

Benno presents his own ride! Loved this cool interactive dark ride!

It's awesome that the interactive games you play while on the dark ride are more like "mini-apps" with things you have to do instead of just "shooting targets." We thought this was GREAT!



Image
If your child is too small for the dark rides, you can put them on the ride in these Ferrari car seats! Amazing!

Image
Image
Image
Did we mention that @FerrariWorldAD also has some excellent theming throughout the park?

Image
The lift hill on Flying Aces is like a ride in itself! The steepness and the speed of that lift was crazy!

Image
The staff at Ferrari World were AWESOME to work with today! Huge thanks to the marketing & operations team!

Image
Image
Image
Kristen also had a GREAT day at Ferrari World today! There is plenty to do for all ages here!

Oh yeah... We aren't talking about this! :)

Thanks again for reading! We will be back with another installment soon!

Oh yes, be sure to POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!
(we took the time to write the report, the least you could do is say something nice about it!) :p

I would definitely love to check out UAE....these parks look amazing and I am intrigued about some of the other plans for parks.

And of course the food and architecture all look amazing too! :lover:

Great report, as always. This park and everything else in Dubai is pretty much at the top of my bucket list, no question. Oh, and those POVs are :lover:

Ferrari World looks like the star of Dubai. Formula Rossa and Flying Aces are two of my most sought after coasters.

Ferrari World has come a long way since your last visit. Flying Aces looks great.

Thanks for the report, the park is really growing and adding some nice additions. A couple more and it might be worth the long plane ride for me to get there so I can get my 'Formula Rossa Face!'. What I really want to comment about is the , "Oh yeah... We aren't talking about this!" track. But since your not talking I won't. Could you be plied with copious amounts of alcohol to talk? And since alcohol was just mentioned, do they offer it at the park or is that off limits?

^I think Robb was mostly being funny. Some online searching and you can easily find out that it's supposed to be a pretty bad ass Dynamic Attractions coaster with inversions and launches. No opening date has been set at this point.

Last I heard the SFX coaster was opening this summer, but I wouldn't get my hopes up since it was supposed to open a year ago.

Hotels only for tourists. I believe there are some spots to buy it if you have a license provided from the government for home use, but that's a Dubai Dave question.
