It was in November 2007 that the first stone of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi was laid and till date, there is no such extravagant piece of architecture built. Located within the grounds of the Yas Marina Circuit and spread over 86,000 square metres, it’s the largest indoor theme park in the world. Thinking of what to do about the whopping 41 Celcius heat? Don’t worry, the park is climate controlled.
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is the leading tourist attraction in the Middle East and here are the 7 main attractions of Ferrari World which we highly recommend.
1. Formula Rossa
