The countdown to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s 10th anniversary has officially begun, and the Park is gearing up for the celebration of the decade this November. Guests can expect a variety of entertainment, adventures, delectable dining and much more, all under one iconic red roof.
The Park’s 10th anniversary
celebrations will see Ferrari World Abu Dhabi transformed in red décor, with
family-friendly fun including a live DJ and trivia, a Painting and Pizza
demonstration, a trunk show to showcase the Park’s Fall-Winter retail
collection, and other surprises in store for guests to enjoy. The Park will
also welcome guests with entertainment inspired by Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s
rich history, including a uniquely choreographed dance show.
Bianca Sammut, General Manager of
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Acting Head of Yas Theme Parks, commented: “With
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi preparing to celebrate 10 years of success and
exceptional Ferrari-inspired guest experiences next month, I am extremely proud
of everything we have accomplished in the last ten years. We opened our doors
in 2010 and have come a long way since then. Along our journey, we have
continually sought to expand our world-class offering of entertainment, dining
and shopping. Ferrari World Abu Dhabi was the first theme park to launch on Yas
Island and the first attraction of its kind in the world.”
“We started 2020 off with the
launch of the Family Zone for our younger guests; a testament to our commitment
to evolving the Park’s offering and elevating the guest experience. We promise
our guests that there is more in store and we look forward to celebrating the
next 10 years,” Sammut continued.
The Park’s Family Zone, which
opened in February of this year, includes four all-new attractions; Formula
Rossa Junior, Speedway Race, Flying Wings and the Turbo Tower. The Zone was
created to allow younger guests to experience the same thrilling adventures
available to adults. Little ones can ride in style with the park’s
Ferrari-themed push cars and get decked out in a Ferrari-branded retail line
designed especially for junior guests.
Also on the menu is Mamma
Rossella’s new range of dishes for kids. Mouthwatering meals include miniature
wood-fired pizzas and a traditional spaghetti Bolognese. The restaurant will
also have a themed gift basket available for purchase in honor of the
celebrations, including a delicious linguine recipe, complete with all of the
ingredients for families to recreate at home.
The World’s Leading Theme Park
also launched a year-long Hypercars exhibition in August 2020, mirroring the
limited-series cars currently on display at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, as
part of the exciting lineup being rolled out in the lead up to the 10th
anniversary this November.
Since its opening, Ferrari World
Abu Dhabi has set a new benchmark in the Middle East attractions industry. Over
the past decade, the Park doubled its offerings to include more than 41 rides
and attractions, in addition to hosting annual seasonal community events, such
as Winterfest, Chinese New Year, The Rollercoaster Rally, Eid and the Festival
of Lights. The iconic theme park has also been the
preferred pit stop to many internationally recognized celebrities such as
Scuderia Ferrari F1 driver Charles Leclerc, American rock band ‘The Killers’
and Manchester City footballer David Silva.
In under 10 years, Ferrari World
Abu Dhabi has earned more than 35 accolades, including “World’s Leading Theme
Park” by the World Travel Awards (WTA), “Theme Park of the Year” by the Theme
Parks & Entertainment Development Awards and earning the TripAdvisor’s
“Certificate of Excellence” in 2019.
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi has also
worked alongside the relevant authorities to implement stringent precautionary
measures throughout the Park including mandatory online booking to ensure that
the limited capacity is adhered to, thermal screening cameras, safe distance
markers at all rides and outlets, modified ride capacity as well as modified
dining and shopping experiences. As a direct result of its efforts, Ferrari
World Abu Dhabi was awarded the ‘Go Safe’ certification by the Department of
Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) last month. The program aims to
enforce global standards for safety and cleanliness across all tourism and
retail establishments in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The Park encourages guests to
play their part in these safety measures by wearing face masks at all times,
sanitizing hands regularly and choosing contactless payment at all outlets.
