No atmosphere or excitement about the place. Felt like a shopping mall with the rides at the edges. Ferrari simulator race was average and not quite synched so good potential for motion sickness!!

The building itself is absolutely amazing, you walk inside and feel very disappointed. For what it is, it looks and feels like any other theme park ( with a bit more red colors ). The museum is ok and the rides are nothing to rave about. The only awesome ride is the Rossa. Which is the fastest roller coaster in the world. If you like speed and heights then this is the ride for you. For kids, there is the usual mini karting and other stuff but I think these places should cater to both target groups. Not sure if Ill go back.

Amusement park for both adults and children. Make sure that you try the Ferrari simulator. Its better to go directly to reserve your seat for simulator since it can take quite a time in the queue. The roller coaster is the fastest in the word. Not for everybody. 240 km per hour in seconds. Its a life time experience.

The Rossa ride is indeed very good and yes many of the other rides struggle to keep up to this standard. However, there was a 90 minute period where we unsuccessfully tried to get onto the top four rides. The vertical ride at the centre wasn't working all day. We then tried to get onto the water ride but couldn't, they didn't know why .. We then tried to go on the "competing" roller coasters and guess what, it wasn't working either. We distracted ourselves on on a baby ride to buy some time, went back to the water ride which still wasn't working but apparently the twin rides were, great :) Walked 5 minutes to reach it and they shut it again just as we reached. Grrr, so then tried to get onto Ferrari Rossa - it was closing in 5 minutes for daily maintenance and we were advised not to queue there either. GRRRRRR. The main rides were out of action and it is NOT a short walk between them, they could do with some live screens showing ride status. To be fair we were upgraded to Premium but still leaves a bit of a bitter taste. The competing roller coasters never came back online fully, only one car was brought back into action and even that stalled just as it re-entered the queing area leaving a lot of people sitting int he sun stranded for a few minutes ....
