Martin was out at Ferrari World today for the opening of Benno's Great Race and sent us this video. The ride looks like a lot of fun! Do we know who is responsible for it?

^ I'm almost certain the ride system is an ETF Multi Mover. Shooting system is Alterface.

I think you're right, it looks almost identical to the system used on Dragons Shooting at Lotte World which is also an ETF Multi Mover. Although this one has a lot more to it than Lotte World's.

That's one of the stranger "shooting" dark rides I've ever seen--but in a good way. Nice to see Ferrari World expanding its offerings.

Looks like a nice dark ride, offers something different for families to enjoy. I like it!

And which dark ride did this replace? They all sort of blend together in my head.

Itvwas the racing legends. The one that was mostly cardboard cut outs. Ok. That could be any of them. The one close to formula Rossa.

Wait, is that a trackless system I saw?

^Yep, on Lotte Worlds you could see the line (the website says it uses a guide wire) all the cars were following in the middle of the road but that doesn't seem to be the case here, although I'm not quite sure what the advantage is overall when they follow a set linear path without dead-ends or junctions like this or Dragons Shooting, does anyone know what the advantages are? Is it just a case of no track meaning less maintenance costs overall? I didn't even notice when I rode Dragons Shooting for the first time that it was trackless.

Edit: Now I'm curious, does anyone know the difference between EMF's Mystic Mover and Multi Mover? The site lists Dragons Shooting as a Mystic Mover but that's clearly Lotte Worlds ride on the product page and brochure for Multi Mover.
