What can I say, great looking place. Is way to expensive for what it is, at the end of the day only one ride to really go on which is the Rosso. All the other rides are a waste of time and not worth the time. Wouldn't say don't go but would say don't expect the world.

Ferrari World was not on our initial itinerary and was planned at the insistence of my daughter since she had heard so much about the place from her friends.It was certainly worth it.Had a great experience.Recommended for car enthusiasts.

Its enjoyable for 8+ year old kids as lot of the rides require a minimum height.So very small children may not be able to get on many of the rides.

Its an hour off from Dubai by car.Cabs would cost 500+AED both ways including waiting time for the day.Its advisable to book the entry tickets through the net and reach by 10.30am.Tickets are 225 AED and Premium access is 100 AED additional.

It gets crowded at the ticketing counters esp during the tourist season.The Premium pass is a worthwhile spend if you wish to skip the long queues.(Net tickets are exchanged for tickets at the information counter which isnt very crowded.You can upgrade to Premium at this counter and not wait in the ticketing queue in case you already hold tickets).We visited during the New Year week and the Premium got crowded too.

The simulators and the roller coasters are recommended.(gets crowded early -be prepared to wait even in the Premium line)The advanced simulators cost an extra 85 AED and there is a substantial waiting time.

The 4D movie shows(loved the "Ride with the champ" & Plane travel over Italy") , the acrobatic dance show and are worth experiencing.Check the timings on the brochure.

Be prepared to spend the a day if you wish to do all the rides.The park opens at 11am and can be done at a leisurely pace by 6pm(had to skip a few rides as had to finish off by 4pm because of other commitments,slight disappointment that)

Fairly good dining options.

Great day out.

After reading some of the other reviews on TA I was concerned going. However one of my sons really wanted to go. Maybe we lucked out on the day as we went right after the holiday rush, but when arriving a little before the gates opened, I thought due to lack of cars it was closed. Well, it was open and we all had a very good time. We have been to all the Disney Parks in the US, as well as in Japan and this is not comparable as it is much smaller and limited attractions. However the rides were fun and my kids were well entertained. My 8 year old road all the rides several times each and the longest wait for any ride was 15 min. Some rides he could get back on with out any wait. As for the Formula Rossa, while it doesnt have huge drops, it has speed and was a very cool experience. Small children under 1.3m have very limited options. Would not recommend this for them.

What to tell about a Ferrari park? The fastest roller coaster in the world (240Km/h in 5,6 seconds) you got it. A virtual race with your friends at the race simulator (up to 8 person runs in the same race), indoor park (remember that summer can hit 50°C / 130°F) with the air conditioning confort - you got it. And of course a lot of pictures with those lovable cars and the park itself.

I love theme parks, so I was really excited about going there that I made the mistake of not reading the reviews on TA. What I mistake! It was a waste of time and money. There is nothing thrilling about this park. The place is beautiful though.
The waiting times are longer than another theme parks I have visited, so if you decide to go, you should get the "premium pass".
I waited quite a bit to ride the "Formula Rossa". It was nothing special. It is fast, but it does not have any exciting drops, so it is not my kind of ride. I won't even waste my time with the other rides, all of them very disappointing. As expected, there are a lot of ferraris inside the park, but you are in the UAE, so you can see them on the streets. I saw two right after leaving the park.
In summary, if you have been to places like Cedar Point, you will be disappointed.
