Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will offer an additional total of 19 new rides and attractions, as it commences work on its Phase 3 expansion.

The developer, Miral is keen on the expansion, having added several new attractions during Phase 2 of the destination’s development, Flying Aces and Beno.

Now entering Phase 3, Miral will bring two new roller coaster rides and two additional experiences during 2017, as it aims to increase park capacity by 40%.

Mohammed Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral, said: “Ferrari World is already one of the most immersive, iconic and unique theme park destinations in the world with five signature roller coasters all under one roof. We intend to continue enriching that experience for both residents and visitors to the UAE.”

“We are thrilled to present these new experiences, and take the evolution of the Island to new heights. We listened to our loyal customers, and will deliver four new experiences that will keep them hungry for more,” he added.

Overall, these projects bring Miral’s total investment at Ferrari World an estimated $190m (AED700m).

“The completion of Phase 2 is significant; it further demonstrates Miral’s commitment to making Yas Island a global tourism destination as we expand our portfolio of unique theme parks and attractions.

Phase 3 will see the visitor experience evolve once more, giving a unique appreciation of Yas Island and we look forward to announcing new attractions in the near future,” Al Zaabi added.

March 2017 will see the launch of Turbo Track, the first instalment of new attractions at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

Based on a modern Ferrari driver training facility, it comprises a 180-metre track stretching from inside the Ferrari World building and out through a glass roof, reaching 62-metres above the park.

Riders of Turbo Track will reach a top speed of approximately 102km/h, as they surge along a curving track, rotating upwards.

Designed with both front facing and rear-facing seats to offer guests two unique experiences, Turbo Track also includes a zero gravity hill and gravity valley.
