London, Oct 28 (ANI): Abu Dhabi’s new indoor Ferrari World theme park has the fastest rollercoaster in the world.

The heart-stopping ride, which reaches speeds of 149mph in 4.9 seconds, makes the occupant feel as if they are inside a Formula One car.

The red roof of the indoor complex is modelled on the side profile of a Ferrari GT and is adorned with the largest prancing horse logo ever created.

There is also a more sedate Scalextric-style track, with replica Ferraris for visitors to drive around.

The park is expected to become a mecca for Grand Prix racing fans, particularly as the Formula One race is due to take place there next month.

“The Ferrari park is a major leap forward in our leisure proposition as it has enormous appeal regionally and internationally,” the Daily Mail quoted Mubarak al Muhairi, director general of tourism, as saying.

United Arab Emirates have ploughed billions into the 861,000 square foot park on Yas Island and expect 10,000 visitors a day.

“It will be a lot of sensations for every age group. We have managed to turn one of the world’s most exclusive brands into an extraordinary experience for families and fans,” theme park general manager Claus Frimand added. (ANI)
