Ferrari World Abu Dhabi Trip Report

Postby dubaidave » Tue Oct 04, 2011 11:04 pm

Here's a trip report from FWAD from a visit I did on 4th September.

This is likely to be the last trip I do for a while as my annual pass will expire soon and I can afford to replace it just yet.

This was also the last day of the school holidays and it was nice to see that the park was quiet busy.
I also visited later than I would normally do so got to see the La Gara show for the fist time.
Formula Rossa was down at the time (it is now running again) so a lot of the other attractions were very busy.

V12 was open again and has really effective air cannons added along the route.
The Racing Legends has had real rain added to the rain section.
Made in Marinelo had all the heat and wind effect working .
Speed of magic seemed to be running better with more movement and slightly better sync than before and added smoke effects.
Fioranno GT Challenge has opened a smoking area where you can see most of the track from.
Overall it was a very good day. It was nice to see so many people there and that they all seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Yes, rossa was down, but the GP there didn't seem to mind all that much at all.

The ride was running with slightly less water which made for a much drier and slightly smoother ride.

And then we got stuck!

The staff were very helpful and did a great job of reassuring the public and in getting the boats moving again

Looks like a fantastic place. I hope to go someday, but it's unlikely.

Any news on why FR was down?

I still think FR IS the park. Although I do wish V12 had been open on my visits.

The more I see of this, the more I want to go to Dubai... Indoor complex type parks are fascinating, and it almost looks like they got this one right.
