Ferrari World unveils new family ride
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi unveiled a brand new family ride called 'Viaggio in Italia' at a special event held at the theme park on Thursday.
In celebration of the legendary ‘Mille Miglia’ race in Italy, members of the UAE Ferrari Owners Club drove in a convoy from Dubai to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi to unveil the ride, which is inspired by the historic race.
Visitors to the attraction will be taken on a stunning aerial journey of Italy, taking in the sights of Venice, Tuscany, Lago Maggiore, Rome and many more, all whilst experiencing special effects including mist, wind and the invigorating scents of flowers and plants that bring the journey to life.
Guests will be air-lifted 14.5 metres into the air by simulator arms and suspended over a giant hemispherical domed screen, with highly advanced pivoting hydraulic technology used to swerve and dip seats for maximum thrills.
“If you close your eyes, breathe in the pine-scented air and feel the cool mist float over you can almost imagine you are driving through the Italian countryside – Viaggio in Italia is a ride that really brings the Ferrari sensation to life,” said Andy Keeling, Park Manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
“This is a unique family ride where every member of the family can immerse themselves in the beauty of their surroundings from a truly exciting vantage point,” he added.
