Heres a vid of the que line walkthrough

This is as is and is rather dark




This is a brightened version. It has quite a lot of noise but gives you a better idea of what to expect

Quick question: Is Ferrari World ever busy? Are there lines for Formula Rossa, should we expect lines for this coaster?

Are they making a profit as a park?

Just wondering because whenever I see photos it doesn't seem like there's a lot of people there waiting in line, visiting other attractions, or walking through the elaborate shopping center and spending money. I understand they're growing and trying to do what they can to bring people in, but if it's not busy, I wonder how long they'll be able to sustain and maintain such a huge atmosphere with the type of money they're spending on attractions like this.

It's always quiet on a weekday. However you can't move on a Friday!

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

A lot of the TR's I have read have people going weekdays early morning at opening and hopping over to the nearby water-park or doing the water park in the day and Ferrari World late evening as well. I think both parks have a fast-pass so it helps get around so quick.

Also I think a lot of people who do the TR's are enthusiasts and research enough beforehand to find out what time to visit and work around the crowds. For example, I read peoples reviews about Lotte World having over 3 hour lines for rides like the gyro-swing or Comet coaster, but in almost 6 years of doing TR's for Lotte World I've never seen a wait more than a hour because I know when to avoid the park and generally do my pictures before noon when the crowds will pour in.

Well. Here's a pov. But it's been speeded up a bit. Very strange.
