  • News Abu Dhabi Ferrari Theme Park Promo Video (2010)

    The Yas Island resort development in Abu Dhabi recently posted a promo video for its Ferrari World theme park:

    Yas Island | Ferrari World

    It looks amazing (even has a Soarin' Over Italy ride, and the F1 coaster will be the world's fastest) and is scheduled to open in 2010 (most of the heavy construction is already done and the coaster track is up). This is precisely the thing we need more of in the world to put the pressure on Disney to up the ante on its offerings... don't know if they're listening, especially at WDW.

    Google maps needs to update their imagery, because there's nothing there yet Just sand and a few roads. Going to be pretty impressive when they get it all done though. $40 billion is a MASSIVE amount of money.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

      Thethemeparkguy had posted pics of the construction a couple months back but it looks like he's taken them down. The main structure and main central funnel are a good ways toward structural completion, and the track was being laid for the coasters. Abu Dhabi has got the money so this one should get done on time for next year.

            Abu Dhabi is in the United Arab Emirates, which shares a peninsula with Saudi Arabia, but is pretty different otherwise.

                I don't think they're interested in changing you. Like all capitalists, they just want your money.

                That's why the whole thing is indoors except for the coaster track.

                Ferrari is one of those transcendental brands that fans almost worship with a strong parasocial identity, plus its about race cars which almost everyone likes and can relate to. It's not a bad idea for a park, and then combined with Italian culture makes it even better.

                  One day they might get some of my mone, but then again... the worst part about TDL is the mall styled Mainstreet. Having an entire park lik that... hmm.
                  Yea but... nah. As a part of something larger, perhaps. But then when I think of it, it is.
                  It all just looked like a mall to me. Some parts were very impressive but that is always what one gets when looking at these previews and plans.
