Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the first Ferrari-branded theme
park in the world, has unveiled “Turbo
Track”, a new, heart-pounding rollercoaster set to open at the end of
experience, which gives guests an authentic feel of what it’s like to become a
Ferrari test driver, is the latest thrilling addition to the Park.
Adults and children alike will have their limits put to the
test, as they get a glimpse into the advanced world of the Ferrari Driver Academy, where drivers get an all-round, extensive
technical, athletic and cultural training to make them ready to join the
world’s best in class driving talent.
Starting in a briefing
room, and culminating at 64 meters above Yas
Island, Turbo Track will turn guests into new recruits, and Ferrari World Abu Dhabi into a
futuristic testing facility for aspiring test drivers. The opening two stages
of the experience include an on-screen training and performance analysis.
Recruits then board Turbo Track and burst through the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi
iconic red roof at 102 KMPH, before experiencing hair-raising zero gravity as
they plummet vertically back down. If guests are still thirsty for more
thrills, they can ride it again backwards, with the experience including
front-facing and back-facing seats, offering two unique perspectives.
“At Ferrari World Abu
Dhabi, we’re passionate about creating thrilling experiences, and we can’t wait
to share this incredible new experience with our guests from all around the
world. Not only does this unique ride offer heart-pounding thrills for all
riders, it also gives them the chance to see the world through the eyes of a
Ferrari test driver, creating once again a strong connection with the legendary
brand we represent,” said Jesse Vargas,
General Manager, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
“This exceptional ride
is going to be another first at the Park, and I am sure our Indian guests will
enjoy Turbo Track as much as they have been enjoying the rest of the Park
experiences” he added.
Turbo Track is yet
another rewarding experience for the champion in all of us, offering an
endurance challenge that only test drivers with heart can conquer. It fits
perfectly within Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s ultimate adrenalin experience for
the whole family, felt from the moment you step inside the Park.
The completion of Turbo Track was also a monumental feat of
engineering, following a highly complex construction process that saw a 16sqm
opening created in the center of the roof.
The top of the 64-meter-high track becomes Yas Island’s highest point,
and was created by the same team that built Formula Rossa.
Turbo Track will become the third ride to be launched at
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi in a 12-month period, following the opening of Flying Aces and Benno’s Great Race in 2016.
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s ideal location, in the heart of Yas
Island, combined with its uniquely themed attractions and international brand
recognition, have made it a highly popular tourist attraction. The Park also
hosts exciting seasonal activities, such as the Festival of Lights which
celebrates Diwali, and offers tailored dining experiences to further engage
with its diverse visitor-base from around the world. Of that, India is
recognized as one of its primary growth markets.
