Ferrari Rollercoaster Promises Fun, Allows 'Overtaking'
Later this year, when Ferrari World inaugurates in Abu Dhabi, fans will experience a giant roller coaster ride but with a variation.
The ride in a Ferrari will take adventure-lovers on a two kilometer drive at up to 95 kmh and since there are two cars running side-by-side, the roller coaster turns into a racetrack with a different "winner" every time.
Sadly, there's no accelerator on-board, so regardless of the fact that the cars will be programmed to overtake each other it's not really a race, but it still promises a lot of fun.
The Ferrari GT Rollercoaster is one of the two designed for the colossal theme park. The second is considered as the world's fastest rollercoaster and will dash along at "speeds exceeding 200 kmh", providing thrill-seekers a flavor of what it's like to be in a Ferrari F1 car.
Located on Yas Island on the North East side of Abu Dhabi's mainland, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is obviously setting out to compete with the brand values of the high-end auto company. It will be the world's biggest indoor park with a 45m high, 200,000 m2 red roof encouraged by the lines of the Ferrari GT. The roof featuring the biggest Ferrari logo ever created at 65 m x 48.5 m, is sure to draw your attention.
Other attractions comprise a driving and racing school for the youth and a "Flume ride", which takes you on through the heart of a giant Ferrari 599 engine. And certainly, there will be fresh pasta and made-to-order pizza readily available.
