I have seen a couple of different fun parks (for Ferrari fans - this is not a place where you can actually sit, drive or even watch more than 10-20 Ferraris), yet this one is not worth it's value (235Dh Regular, 385 VIP)

It's only the Formula Rossa that is unusual and it takes you in 4.9sec from 0-240kph.

Queues are long and there are no global displays showing you which attraction is the most crowded at a certain time. On the other hand, if you buy a Premium pass allowing you to bypass Regular queues you might not be happy with the amount you spent for, basically, one attraction only.

My family and I visited Ferrari World in Yas Island yesterday for an overnight weekend getaway. Regular ticket or general admission price is pegged at AED 235 (approx. US$ 64 without tax) per adult. The junior admission which is for kids below the 1.3m height is AED 195 (US$ 54) and the Premium ticket/admission price is AED 385 (US$104). The Premium ticket is unlimited pass to Ferrari World with priority pass in rides. We only bought the regular admission and paid for the discounted rate of AED 175 each since we are airline staff.

The whole amusement park is covered except for the half of the 2 roller coaster rides. It is airconditioned which makes your day in the park worthwhile. Here are some of the attractions:

For the whole family
Speed of Magic
Made in Maranello
The Racing Legends
Galleria Ferrari
Cinema Maranello
Driving with the Champion
Tyre Twist
Viaggio in Italia

For the adventurous and thrill seekers (both are roller coaster rides)
Formula Rossa (the fastest roller coaster ride in the world!)
Fiorano GT Challenge (2 sets of car-shaped roller coaster racing on the tracks)

For the little ones
Junior GT
Junior Grand Prix
Junior Training Camp

For performance admirers
RED (some acrobatic acts and stunts)

For the quiz show fanatics
Fast Lane

Aside from the amazing rides, there are also plenty of dining options, food kiosks and shops around the place. The only caveat in this amusement park is that, they do not allow you to bring your own food and drinks inside. You have to buy inside and eat there too. Thank goodness our friend tipped us about it so before going to the park, we already had our lunch. Also, we were billeted in one of the hotels nearby so we went back to the hotel to grab some snacks and re-entered the Ferrari World in the afternoon. You can leave the park and come back again and the attendants would stamp your arm to be checked later on when you go back.

Rest rooms are not an issue. They are everywhere too and huge and clean. The whole place is actually well-maintained.

Parking is not an issue as well. There are plenty of parking spaces at both ends of the park. The only thing we noticed was that, the parking area were so dirty. No one bothered to take out the trash every where. There were food bags of fast food restaurants. I think, other visitors brought their food and ate at the parking area. It was littered with paper bags, plastics bags, cups, disposable utensils, water bottles and tissue papers which were just lying around.

Well, the price of the water/soda inside was almost 650-700% of the original price if you buy them in the grocery. The price was just exorbitant. They charge like you are in a fine dining restaurant or luxurious hotels. We skipped eating and drinking inside.

The park opens from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. only from Tuesday to Sunday and closed on Mondays. If you're visiting, please check their website first for actual park timings and schedule especially this summer.

This place is largely a big promo for Ferrari. It has an enormous under cover area as befitting the worlds largest indoor theme park. The Formula Rosso roller coaster is just breathtaking in its initial acceleration, and if you like coasters, worth a visit for that alone. The G-Force ride up the tower was fun, as was the Fiorano GT challenge ride was OK. The rest is very tame. I went because I was staying at Yas Island and had time; had I stayed in Abu Dhabi itself I don't think I would have bothered.
