Ferrari World - Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, UAE | Best Theme Park in UAE
Updated: Jun 21, 2020
To explore the ultimate and exquisite experience of Ferrari cars, we have visited the Ferrari World Theme Park in UAE. The Ferrari World is located in Yas Island Abu Dhabi.
It has 5 different zones with 37 incredible rides and attractions for kids and adults and provides the magnificent Ferrari Experience.
From the Bird eye view, the theme park is like a Ferrari Logo. The Amusement park has the record breaking fastest Roller Coaster to Real Ferrari Experience, from a visit of Italian landmarks to Ferrari Galleria. The Ferrari World is totally indoor so you don’t need to worry about the weather.
The Price for a single day ticket is AED 295 but if you book a Yas Island Package, it will cost you way cheaper. If you start early in the morning, then you have enough time to explore the park in a single day.
As we had booked the 2 days package of Yas Island including 2 nights stay in a hotel and access to Ferrari World and Yas Water Park. Check their website. So We already had the tickets. It’s highly advisable to book your tickets in advance.
We had an ordinary ticket which we changed into FAST TRACK by paying extra money to avoid the long queues. Don’t Forget to pick up your map from the counter so you can identify and decide the rides you want to experience first.
Keep in mind that all the Rides aren’t free in Ferrari World. We had paid an extra money for experiencing the Kart Ferrari Racing and Ferrari Simulation Games.
You don’t need to worry about your belongings like Wallet, Mobile phone, Keys etc. You can keep your belongings in the tray at the beginning of every ride or they collect in the start.
Zone 1: Welcome Plaza
The theme park has a huge Welcome Plaza which is normally reserved for the special events and live performances. It also has 2 Ferrari Stores from where you can buy Ferrari accessories, Apparels or cars as your memorable Souvenir.
Zone 2 : Family Zone
The Family Zone has most of the group rides and attractions for the family and kids. The Zone has Nello’s Adventureland where the little kids also enjoy and have their best time in Ferrari World.

The Turbo Tower is a friendly ride for both Kids and Adults and has a free fall from 13.5 meters height. The ride was quite Childish for us, but we took the Ride to enjoy the Wonderful Aerial view of Ferrari World.
We had jumped into the F1 tyre and the ride started and we were rotating our Tyre with the help of handle and it was spinning, twisting and colliding with other F1 tyres. This ride reminded us of our childhood Tea Cup ride. The ride is very friendly for the kids and light hearted people.
We flew in a Military plane at a Height of 63 meters and gave the most exciting experience.
Zone 3 : F1 Zone
This Zone has all the Rides with Ferrari theme so you get the chance to know and experience the history of Ferrari and Ferrari Cars.
It was the first Ferrari experience we had in the theme Park. This activity is at the start of the Park.
We had accepted the Challenge to be a part of the Ferrari Pit Crew and supposed to change the tyre in 5 seconds. The Time Clock was recording our timing and it took us 16.6 seconds to change the tyre completely.
We have been to Ferrari Galleria where they have exhibited the Ferrari’s History and the iconic Ferrari car back in time and how the Ferrari’s design evolves over the year.
The Galleria shares the amazing stories of Ferrari’s World.
For the Karting Academy, you need to buy an additional ticket. We had signed up and they assigned us the time so we didn’t need to wait in the queue for our turn. We had a real drifting experience in Long track.
The Academy had taken all the safety precautions including professional helmets. We had several laps in the go-kart circuit. We really felt like a real Champions and Aoon had been stood 2nd in the Go-Kart Race.
For UAE Food Blogs:
We had also challenged the advanced Simulation and gained first hand experience to be trained like Ferrari Drivers.
For the Kids, they have Regular Simulators which are included in the ticket but we had paid AED 85 additional for this experience.
Driving with the Champion:
Do you wanna Experience Ferrari's Racing History in Cinematic effects and Ride along with Driver? The Driving with Champion is a must attraction in the Ferrari World. It provided us with the ultimate experience to travel through Ferrari’s History.
Zone 4: Italian Zone
In the Italian Zone, they have created a tiny Italy so you get the chance to explore the main landmarks and Scenic beauty of Italy.
This Zone also has an Italian Architecture with cobblestoned streets, houses with small balconies and hanging clothes and small street cafes. We literally felt that we were in Italy. You can also find Studio Artista from where you can buy artistic paintings.
Viaggio in Italia:
The Ride is inspired by the Open-Road endurance Mille Miglia Race. We took our seat and elevated high and experienced the multi sensory stimulators of Italy.
We were flying over the most beautiful and breathtaking Italian landscape from the vineyards in Tuscany to the World’s Wonderland of Pisa tour, over the Seashore of Italy and feeling the splashes of the sea to the historical Florence, from the small villages to Mountains.
It was the most wonderful experience we had. We have been to Milan, Venice, Florence, Rome and Pisa, the Viaggio Ride seemed so real and reminded us of our time in Italy.
It’s one of our favorite attractions in the Ferrari World. We sat in a small Ferrari 250 California and experienced the Mini Italy tour including the beautiful landmarks like Pisa Tour, Colosseum, Venice, Breathtaking Italian Coastal line of Amalfi coast and Monza Racetrack.
Zone 5: Adventure Zone
This Zone has one the most thrilling and adventurous rides. You really need to think twice before experiencing it.
We took our seat for the Ferrari test drive, it was a Vertically rollercoaster ride which started with a full speed and pierce the roof and rise high into the Sky and then reversed back with a gravity fall. In the beginning, I was a bit scared and then We ended up taking this ride three times.
Fiorano GT Challenge:
There are two Parallel tracks of Ferrari F430 Spider which gave us the feeling that we were competing with other Ferrari Cars on the parallel track, it has a track with sharp turns. It was smooth, not so exciting or thrilling for us.
The Roller coaster reaches to a speed of 240 km/h in 4.9 seconds. The Ride had a long queue with a waiting time of almost 30 minutes.
Here comes our turn . Time to Experience the World’s Record breaking fastest Rollercoaster !!!
We had put the Goggles on and my heart was already pumping fast. So it started, in the beginning it was smooth and then it blasted to 240 km/h in 4.9 second.
For UAE Blogs:
OMG !!!! What an experience. It has the steepest fall and furious turns, we totally loved every bit of it. In total, we took this ride three times on this trip and it was totally out of this World.
Restaurant in Ferrari World:
There are 6 restaurants offering the best Italian and International Cuisines. We had been to Officers Food Quarters and enjoyed their delicious Burgers.
The Ferrari World is a perfect place to enjoy with friends and family. We would highly suggest to book a 3 days Yas Island Package and enjoy the three amusement parks - Ferrari World, Yas WaterPark and Warner Bros World in Yas Island.
