Project Description

Ferrari World

Project details

Client: BeSix

Architect: Benoy


Covering over 900,000 square feet, Ferrari World is the largest indoor theme park in the world, shaped like a massive three-pointed star when viewed from above, featuring a 215-foot version of Ferrari’s yellow prancing horse logo on the curved red roof. This enormous sports car-themed amusement park is home to the world’s fastest roller coaster with a maximum velocity of 149mph which you can see from our carefully designed walkable glass bridge.

The foundation stone for the park was laid on 3 November 2007. It took three years to develop the park and it officially opened to the public on 4 November 2010. Ferrari World Abu Dhabi covers an area of 86,000 square metres.

Inside the theme park, visitors have the opportunity to visit an operating Ferrari factory, take a spin on a real Ferrari, and wander through a gallery of 70 years of Ferrari models. The “Bell’Italia” ride takes visitors on a Ferrari ride through a miniature diorama of the marvels of Italy, including Venice, the Roman Colosseum, the Amalfi Coast, and, of course, Ferrari’s hometown of Maranello.
