Ferrari World Abu Dhabi has been awarded the title of Middle East’s Leading Theme Park for 2017, announced at the World Travel Awards gala event, as the park staved off growing local and international competition.
Jesse Vargas, General Manager, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, present to receive the award on behalf of the team stated: “This award is a true testament to the people that pour their heart and soul into bringing the park to life every single day. We pride ourselves on our continuous evolution, and in bringing world class, exceptional experiences to guests of all ages” Vargas said.
All in all, the park offers 37 thrilling experiences and counting, nearly double the number of attractions in the first year. Most currently, the park launched Turbo Track, a two-way rollercoaster that bursts through the center of the iconic red roof, climbing up to Yas Island’s highest point, before plummeting back.
This follows Formula Rossa and Flying Aces, both with their record-breaking features, establishing Ferrari World Abu Dhabi amongst the most sought after rollercoaster destinations for thrill seekers.
But more than that, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, encapsulated underneath the iconic red roof and centered on Abu Dhabi’s leading leisure destination, Yas Island, has become a national icon of exhilaration and excitement. Surrounded by a world famous race circuit, a world-class golf course, and a number of upcoming international developments in both the entertainment and business sector, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi remains the focal point of one of the most complete and innovative destinations in the region.
And for fans of the historic brand, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi lives close to the most ardent fan’s hearts, being the world’s first Ferrari-branded theme park, a true testament and tribute to the heritage and culture of Ferrari. As such the park offers a historical, technical, and insider’s look at the world’s most celebrated automotive story.
And in addition to Ferrari’s globally recognizable colors filling the venue with the excitement of speed and adrenalin, there’s also a jam-packed calendar of events and festivals that suit each and every guest from around the globe including Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al-Adha, international events like the recent Festival of Lights, and upcoming Winterfest and Chinese New Year.
The ‘Middle East’s Leading Theme Park’ award serves to further highlight the exceptional nature of the park, and its people, the best to come. “The UAE and Ferrari both focus relentlessly on their futures while firmly grounded in their history and heritage. Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Island represent the confluence of these two cultures. As such, this world class family destination will continue to deliver the most unique, most inspired attractions on the planet”, Vargas concluded.
